The Electro-Lights was formed as a duo band mid-2012. Emerging from many different styles of music Oliver Meacham and Samuel Mahler came together and formed something truly different. They are hailed by one critic, "The future sound of rock n' roll". Early in 2014, the band went on hiatus while Samuel Mahler deployed to Afghanistan with the Army Reserve. Upon his return they have hit the ground running, releasing their new single "Don't Even Know" while also touring. Since the creation of The Electro-Lights, they have performed throughout the country on many successful tours and had the opportunity to perform with a wide variety of bands such as The Offspring, Smashing Pumpkins, One Republic, Shinedown, The Wallflowers, Wiz Khalifa and Awolnation.
