Built To Spill Tour Dates

Built to Spill is an American indie rock band based in Boise, Idaho. The band was formed by Doug Martsch in 1992 with the intention to sustain a project that would involve a rotating cast of musicians. The songs are haunting rather than catchy. Doug's lyrics hint at politics, but can also be personal. The words lining the songs are neither directive nor dogmatic. Rational thoughts are constantly sacrificed to the metric and melodic needs of each song.
