The members of Outgrowth have been working the Chicago music scene since the early ‘90s. “We have been part of acts that span in styles from Progressive to Punk to Jazz. While the former bands we have been a part of are too numerous to mention, they all share the overlapping musical elements of odd time signatures, aggressive instrumentation and, at least we like to think, thoughtful lyrics”.

Outgrowth literally grew out of another band that the founding members were a part of. Sensing a difference in musical evolution amongst the members, Raphael and Joe broke off into a separate band along with original drummer, Bill.

Outgrowth released their 12-song, self titled debut in 2007. Although all of the members have released previous recordings, this was the first truly self produced and released studio work for all of the members.

2009 brought changes to Outgrowth with the departure of original drummer Bill. Joe and Raphael continued on as a two piece band with Raphael filling in as the band’s interim drummer. Going back into the studio, Outgrowth began to craft the sound for their next album.

In July of 2010, Outgrowth released a 2 song single entitled ‘November’ and picked up a new guitarist, Ron Mielzynski. ‘November’ was made available to the public for free. The single's 2 songs ‘November” & “Trophy’ will appear on their next album set to be released in 2011.
