Named after a popular brand of synthetic home-siding, Detroit lo-fi garage rockers Tyvek started gaining recognition in 2008 alongside fellow noise poppers Vivian Girls, Times New Viking, and Eat Skull. After recording a multitude of singles and 7"s for the labels X, What's Your Rupture, M'Lady's Records, S-S, and Subpop, the band took a year to record their first full-length, which was scheduled for release on Siltbreeze in spring of 2009. The band's release date was postponed for undisclosed reasons and the band underwent a name change (likely pressured by the threat of copyright infringement from Dupont); switching to TVK and Tijvek before settling on Tvyek. The band ramped up in 2010, releasing the demo LP Skyin and their first album for In the Red, Nothing Fits. ~ Jason LymangroverPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
