Truth Club have tirelessly worked on perfecting their craft, in the process becoming known as one of Raleigh, NC’s premier guitar-based DIY groups. Years of close friendship have strengthened a deep dedication to their musical endeavors. The band formed in the winter of 2016 as guitarist/vocalist Travis Harrington and drummer Elise Jaffe continually ran into each other at house shows in college and decided to collaborate. They were soon joined by bassist/guitarist Kameron Vann, Harrington’s best friend since sixth grade and the person he learned guitar beside. By the end of 2017, the three found themselves in the midst of an eventful year: releasing their first EP, embarking on a two-week tour of the East Coast, landing a spot on Raleigh’s Hopscotch Music Festival, and recording what would become their debut album, Not an Exit. In the next year, they added guitarist/bassist/vocalist Yvonne Chazal to the lineup, and set out on several more regional tours of the East Coast and South. In May 2019, they released Not an Exit on NC label Tiny Engines to favorable reception, garnering praise from outsets such as Paste Magazine and Stereogum. In support of its release, the group set out on a self-booked 25-date tour of the East Coast, South, and Midwest.
