Analog Outlaws have been rocking together since 2013 and still aren't old enough to drink. In that time they've back-to-back EPs of rock-driven alternative music. On January 20, they will be releasing their first full-length album called Open Road. If the preview single of "Drive Away" is any indication this may be the release that will literally get them on the open road and touring far away from Phoenix, at least for summer break. It appears little material from their EPs will make it to the album, which makes this full-length debut all the more exciting.

Analog Outlaws is one of the Valley's hottest young rock bands. Zach Huber's on bass and is a backup singer. Christian Champion is the drummer. Alex Cantu plays guitar and backup sings. Eddie Eberle is the lead singer and on guitar. They range in age from 15 to 19. Their studio space is a spare room at Eberle's house. The band's getting major accolades. "It's really amazing. We're super lucky. We wouldn't be able to do this without our parents and all the support we get from our fans and stuff," said Eberle. Analog Outlaws won Alice Cooper's Proof's In The Pudding contest two years ago.
They've played South by Southwest in Austin and the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles. They came together through the School of Rock in Scottsdale and call their style Southern rock with a mix of pop. They do some cover songs but mostly perform their original stuff. In fact, they just dropped their first full-length album in January. "It's very different from our previous stuff primarily because I don't sound like a little girl because my voice changed," said Eberle. And while maturing may change their sound, they're not letting their youth slow their growth and encourage other kids their age to do the same.
"Don't be afraid of what you want to do and just like people trying to tell you you're not going to make it. Don't listen to the people, just keep pushing through," said Champion. And they do push through, playing almost a hundred gigs so far with more on the calendar.
