Named after a popular brand of synthetic home-siding, Detroit lo-fi garage rockers Tyvek started gaining recognition in 2008 alongside fellow noise poppers Vivian Girls, Times New Viking, and Eat Skull. After recording a multitude of singles and 7"s for the labels X, What's Your Rupture?, M'Lady's Records, S-S, and Sub Pop, the band took a year to record its first full-length, which was scheduled for release on Siltbreeze in the spring of 2009. The album's release date was postponed for undisclosed reasons and the band underwent a name change (likely pressured by the threat of copyright infringement from Dupont), switching to TVK and Tijvek before settling on Tyvek. The band ramped up in 2010, releasing the demo LP Skyin and its first album for In the Red, Nothing Fits. In 2012 the band followed up with another monument to lo-fi, On Triple Beams.
