The Districts About
The Districts were formed in 2009 by four high schoolers from Lititz, a small town in central Pennsylvania. The group self-released two EPs and a full-length album over the course of 2011 and 2012. Late in 2013, after a stint in viral success from a live studio session, The Districts signed with Fat Possum Records, releasing an EP early the following year consisting of three remastered tracks from their previous releases and two new songs. By 2014 the group had relocated from Lititz to Philadelphia. In February 2015, the group’s second full-length, produced by John Congleton, also appeared on the Fat Possum label. This album peaked at #7 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and #28 on the Top Independent Albums chart. The Districts released their third album on August 11th, 2017. It had reached 20th on the Independent Albums chart, and 10th for the Heatseekers album charts.
