RXPTRS are a brand new quintet that combines a mix of ferocious grit with an ear for melody. The group, who formed in early 2018, blend elements of hardcore punk, grunge and hard rock to make a noise crammed full with hooks that still manages to pack a punch.
The group of long-term friends set out to make the music they wanted to hear. “We live in a post-modern age and our sound reflects this,” said vocalist Simon Roach. “With access to hundreds of years of music at our fingertips, we can’t deny the creative influence this has on us.”
With a handful of songs, RXPTRS wasted no time in getting into the studio, linking up with Oz Craggs at Hidden Track Studios in Folkestone (Feed The Rhino, Mallory Knox, Hildamay).
RXPTRS immediately took their raw sound on the road and started cutting their teeth on the live circuit within a few months of forming, playing house shows, parties and touring up and down the UK and Europe, alongside artists such as Escape the Fate, As It Is, King 810 and Light the Torch, quickly picking up a following of hardcore supporters from their captivating and intense live shows.
