Midlake formed in the small, quirky Texas town of Denton. Five highly talented musicians from the North Texas School of Music have come together to create a unique sound, tapping into an arsenal of technical skill and unbridled creativity. In 2001, their self released EP, Milkmaid Grand Army, sold over 1,000 copies based on the strength of their live shows alone. The band has two full length albums, 2004's Bamnan and Slivercork and 2006's The Trials of Van Occupanther.
Midlake has played European festivals as well as the 2005 Coachella Festival. In addition, they were the special musical guest for the Stereo Sounds Skateboarding Party in London, England, hosted by actor and skateboarding legend Jason Lee. Jason has joined forces with Midlake as a huge supporter, promoter, and collaborator, directing and filming a video for their single "Balloon Maker."

According to singer Tim Smith, "it's a little more keyboards and a little less electric guitar; not too rowdy, but not too soft; a tinge of melancholy but hopeful."
