When Joliet originated in 2007, it was an indie rock band hailing from Joplin, Missouri. Multiple member changes, trials, tribulations, and triumphs, however, formed the band into what it is today. Joliet has moved from their former indie rock sound to their current metalcore meets hardcore sound heard today. Despite the change in sound, the band’s vision remains the same. All the members in the band agree that there is a purpose to what they do. A higher calling. This band wants to make a difference, but also just wants to hang out with everyone at their shows and have a good time. With the band’s recent signing to Red Cord Records based out of Rockford, Illinois, big things are coming from these guys soon.

Joliet’s first full-length CD will be recorded and released this summer. 2011 promises to be the most exciting year for Joliet yet.
