Winchester Rebels

Looking for a great rock band? Well here you go.

Winchester Rebels are awesome, and their latest album Warrior rocks!

‘WINCHESTER REBELS was formed in August of 2009 in Santa Barbara California. Former “The Awakend” frontman, Nick Hunt and “Sicker Than Others” Bassist, John Livergood, came together after about a year of talking and started putting together a sound that would echo great hard rock bands from the 90’s with a twist of the new. Shortly after picking up a studio in Isla Vista, we ran across our friend Nick Fitzgerald, guitarist from “Battleship Grey,” and things started coming together. Barry Carter filled in on drums and we picked up James Longorea to play Guitar and fill in the rest of our sound. The drums are hard hitting, the guitars are heavy, the vocals inspire and carry the melodic sound of a band that demands to be heard. We have been compared to the likes of Alice In Chains, STP, Danzig, Muse, Bowie, Incubus and others. Listen to our music and you decide. See you at our next show.’ -WR LastFM bio

It seems to be the world we will always live in.

I can’t blindly support any cause that mindlessly destroys all that surrounds it, without reason.

What is happening to this country?

I am Crandew.
