July For Kings, or "JFK", is a Cincinnati, Ohio-based alternative rock band founded by Joe Hedges (vocals, guitar), Sam Dobrozsi (drums), Travis Delaney (guitar), Jason Morgan (bass), and T Miller (cello, guitar). The band was forged in Middletown, Ohio, a steel town between Dayton and Cincinnati, in 1997. July For Kings is known for its melodic guitar-heavy sound and Hedges’ introspective, sometimes quirky lyrics. After several line-up changes that left him without two founding members, frontman Joe Hedges dropped the July For Kings name in April 2006, choosing to release the next album, Curvature, using his own moniker. In October 2007, Joe Hedges announced that July For Kings had reunited and that they were working on a new album. On June 23rd 2009 July For Kings released the full-length studio album entitled Monochrome. and on July 14th 2015 July For Kings released the full-length album Middletown.
