Though many bands in Chicago’s tightly knit punk scene seem like family, the Smoking Popes are literally so. Formed in 1991 by brothers Josh, Eli and Matt Caterer (and rounded out by former Alkaline Trio drummer Mike Felumlee), the band has managed to stand out in a crowded scene, thanks to vocals inspired by crooners like Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. Their most recent release, This Is Only a Test, came out in 2011. With Fury Things, The Bigger Empty.
