Middle Class Rut are a passionate and urgent duo featuring vocalist/guitarist Zack Lopez and vocalist/drummer Sean Stockham. Lopez and Stockham had previously played together in the Dreamworks-signed Leisure, which split in 2003. A national tour in 2007 drew some attention and the band's single, "New Low," began receiving local radio airplay. In 2008, Lopez and Stockham signed to the Bright Antenna label and released two EPs. In 2010, Middle Class Rut released their full-length debut, No Name No Color. A second album, Pick Up Your Head, followed in 2013.
