    TheAudition are a dance-rock-pop-punk band from Chicago, IL. Like their contemporaries such as Fall Out Boy, Alkaline Trio and Spitalfield, their music is energetic and melodic. Their Victory Records debut album is titled Controversy Loves Company.

    theAudition formed in 2003 in the suburbs of Chicago by Ryan O'Connor and Joe Lussa who both shared a common love for music and the desire to tour. The band went through the usual baby band lineup changes, then added Seth Johnson on guitar and started playing local shows alongside bands like June and The Academy Is,. With a new demo in hand and half a years worth of local touring accomplished, theAudition was discovered by like-minded local label Victory Records and immediately signed a record deal. A month after signing, theAudition lost their original singer and was on the search for a replacement. The band found a soulmate in Danny Stevens from Detroit, Michigan. Ryan spoke of Danny's inception in the band, saying "I made some calls to a few people I knew and the one person I really connected with was Danny. We both shared the same passion for music and after writing You've Made Us Conscious we knew that he was meant to be in theAudition."

    In the Spring of 2005, theAudition recorded their Victory debut, Controversy Loves Company, at Nada Studios in New Windsor, NY in just over a month. theAudition chose to work with producer John Naclerio due to his great reputation and his past work with bands like My Chemical Romance, Senses Fail, and Brand New. Ryan said of the recording experience: "Recording Controversy was one of the best experiences of my life. John Naclerio is a great guy and is amazing at what he does. Being the first time in a real studio, everyone was a little nervous about what to expect but John made everyone comfortable and that helped us all with making the record we wanted to make."
    After their recording debut was completed, theAudition added Timmy Klepek as an additional guitar player. theAudition headed out on the New Faces From Different Places tour his past summer with labelmates The Hurt Process, The Junior Varsity and Aiden and their national buzz started, with the local Chicago scene stewing in anticipation for theAudition's record release.
