The Antlers is Peter Silberman, Darby Cicci, & Michael Lerner. After a handful of solo EPs and LPs by Silberman, The Antlers expanded into a band during the record of Hospice (between May 2007 and August 2008). The band self-released Hospice in March of 2009, and Frenchkiss Records later released the album in August of 2009.
That's what's easy, that's what's simple. That's all true. Everything else is more complicated.
