Ludo is an alternative rock band from St. Louis, Missouri. The band consists of lead vocalist/guitarist Andrew Volpe, lead guitarist/back up vocalist Tim Ferrell, moog/synth and back up vocalist Tim Convy, and drummer/back up vocalist Matt Palermo.
After playing together for only three weeks, Ludo recorded their self-titled debut album, Ludo, and released it on their own indie label, Redbird Records, in August 2003.
In 2005, the band returned to the studio to record the EP Broken Bride, a rock opera about a man who travels backward and forward through time in an attempt to save his wife from dying in a car accident in 1989, fighting futuristic zombies and prehistoric pterodactyls along the way.
On February 26, 2008, they released their album, You're Awful, I Love You. The lead single was "Love Me Dead," a song written in 2004.
In November 2008, while on tour in Chicago bassist Marshall Fanciullo was relieved of his duties in the band. In recent tours, Tom Cantillon has filled the bassist slot. (He's also the lead vocalist in Tommy & The High Pilots, another awesome band with Matt filling the drummer slot.)
Ludo's third full-length album titled Prepare the Preparations was released September 7, 2010. The lead single from the album was "Whipped Cream." Topics on the new album include "skeletons, pirates, cyborgs, robots, leprechauns, witches, curses, Bonnie and Clyde and 1950s R&B." Volpe said of the new album, "I like to write from my imagination, so there are songs about skeletons, grave robbing lovers, a cyclops and of course love and all that stuff."
Andrew and Tim Convy have their own Twitter accounts as well.
