Ours is an American rock band led by singer Jimmy Gnecco.



Since their creation in 1990, the line-up has evolved many times, but Gnecco has always felt that having a rotating group of musicians who could play off each other was important. In high school, Gnecco was in the band Lost Child and later, The Harmony Bandits, which eventually evolved into what is now Ours. In 1994, Ours released their first album titled Sour under their own label entitled "Beatnik Records" owned by Mike Marri. Afterward, the band dissolved and did not reform again for several years.

In 1997, Gnecco restarted Ours again and quickly drew industry attention. Ours signed with DreamWorks Records and after four years, released their first major label album Distorted Lullabies in 2001. Produced by Steve Lillywhite of U2 fame, the album received mixed reviews but led to successful tours with acts such as Ocean Colour Scene, Pete Yorn, and The Cult. The track "Sometimes" peaked at #31 on the US Billboard Modern Rock charts that year, while the music video saw moderate airtime on MTV.[3]

Precious followed quickly in 2002. Precious featured a more stripped-down sound and received much more positive reviews and a slot opening for The Wallflowers.

In 2004, Ours relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles to work with legendary producer Rick Rubin. The resulting album, Mercy (Dancing for the Death of an Imaginary Enemy), was released on April 15, 2008.

Current members of the Ours, under the monikers Static, Locke, Race, along with Gnecco , have toured with Marilyn Manson, Blue October, Circa Survive, Fear Before the March of Flames, The Dear Hunter, and Dear and the Headlights in support of Mercy (Dancing for the Death of an Imaginary Enemy). They have also toured Europe with a-ha.
