Airstream Futures is a rock/punk/alternative band from Chicago, Illinois. The members are Devon Carson (vocals), Jeff Dean (guitar, vocals), Megan Edgin (bass), and Michael Soucy (drums). The band began as an idea among long time friends and previous bandmates. Jeff and Michael played in a band together for years and decided to start a new band together. Jeff had gotten to know Devon when he recorded her previous band in the studio where he worked. Jeff and Devon connected immediately when they met, bonding over their shared Las Vegas roots. Jeff was impressed with Devon’s talent and the two committed to the idea of forming a band together one day.
As Jeff and Michael planned their next project, Jeff thought it was the perfect opportunity to see if Devon would be interested in joining, as well. Devon was on board and the three began writing songs and recording, but were still in need of a bass player. Devon, Jeff, & Michael began holding auditions for a bass player. Megan auditioned after being connected with the group by a mutual friend. Megan was invited to join the band and thrilled to be a part of the team. The group has a blast together and shares love for music, cheese, and Catch Phrase.
Airstream Futures recorded a full-length album, Spirale Infernale, released via Paper + Plastick Records in December, 2017. In May, 2018, they self-released a limited edition cassette, En Avoir Marre, with 2 LP songs, 1 studio outtake, and 3 unreleased live songs recorded at Liars Club in Chicago. This 7” vinyl release is a limited edition of 300 random coloured vinyl available via Little Rocket Records with new songs If I and PR Nightmares.
