Fearlessly honest and unwaveringly persistent, The Ugly Club, has been operating for nearly two years with such a force that the band has become impossible to ignore. Formed in 2009, The Ugly Club consists of Ryan Egan (vocals, guitar), Joseph Stasio (vocals, guitar), Taylor Mandel (keyboard, piano, trumpet, melodica), Rick Sue-Poi (bass) and Ryan McNulty (percussion). Following the success of their debut EP, Visions of Tall Girl, The Ugly Club’s fans have been hungry for more of their unique, infectious sound. Even hungrier to deliver, The Ugly Club began a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a full-length album. The band’s devotion to their fans and vice versa became evident when the campaign raised more than double its goal, making the release of You Belong To The Minutes a celebration for the band and fans alike.
