The Purple 7 is a band that features Will from DEFIANCE, OH/LANDLORD, Chris Mott from LANDLORD, and Patrick Jennings from the HOT NEW MEXICANS. Conceived in Chris’s attic and Will’s basement at MAGNETIC SOUTH on several experimental 4 track sessions while on leave from Landlord, the band has taken on new dimensions since Patrick arrived in town and set up shop in a suburban style studio on the south side of Bloomington. We were destined, it seems, to be in a band together. Our first 5 song record (one sided 12″ 45 rpm on marbled purple & black vinyl with an engraving on the back) will be available from Let’s Pretend records ( on October 4th and to celebrate we are setting out on our debutante midwestern tour. See the list of shows in the “Family” section of this website.
