'the Disowned' is a three piece heavy punk rock machine based out of Los Angeles, CA. The band formed in March 2008 after james and peri, two survivors from a previous project "Diefast", decided to join forces and start up a new endeavour. Meghan mattox (My Ruin, Naked Aggression), was quick to jump on and offer her bass "slaying" services while she wasn't being summoned to the occasional Naked Aggression gig, thus giving birth to a three fold assault weapon of hard driving guitar riffs, a blistering rhythm section and aggressive punk inspired vocals akin to a modern day "Motorhead". a few months later of writing, diligent rehearsing and the opening slot on Papa Roach's anniversary show at the Troubadour, this power packed trio has developed into a tight knit unit, with a debut EP already threatening imminent release. The band name was stumbled upon by none other than our very own "metal meghan" who made the discovery during a trip to las vegas one weekend. She texted james the band name from a casino, which shall remain unnamed, and immediately it struck a chord and received everyone's blessing soon after. How exactly our bass player arrived at the two words that comprise "the Disowned" will unfortunately forever remain a secret, as we all know that "what happens in vegas stays in vegas...". nevertheless "the Disowned" is a title the band is comfortable identifying with and we believe that there are plenty of others who will too.
