'Like a CNN for disaffected suburban punks.' Good old fashioned melodic speed punk featuring pop hooks & crunchy melodies with middle finger attitude and a hint of tongue in cheek sarcasm. A punk rock gumbo repertoire that blends in high speed tempos, haunting melodies, & pop hooks. The Blameshifters are a band that performs high energy punk rock sets and have extensively toured the west coast. They released their debut album, 'Feast before the Famine', (which was independently recorded and released) in 2005 and their second, 'Disenfranchised Anarchist', was again, independently recorded and released in late 2007. They have also been featured on several international compilations. The Blameshifters' latest CD, 'Disenfranchised Anarchist', was inspired by remarks made by Howard Dean during the 2004 Presidential campaigns, 'When you corrupt the process of elections you're not going to get anyone on your side, you're just going to create another generation of disenfranchised Anarchists.' The Blameshifters featuring Pigman on bass, Mat Loman on guitar/vocals & Steveness on drums captured the cynical feeling that they, as a group, had envisioned for these songs. The band is hailed as one of the most reliable bands on the Northern California punk scene & has been writing, recording & performing together since 2003.
