Rx Bandits - Band HistoryRx Bandits began in 1995 in Seal Beach, California. A year later, they self-released their debut full-length Demo(nstration) before signing to Antedote Records to release Those Damn Bandits. The album helped the band garner attention and eventually sign to Drive-Thru Records. In 1999, the band released their Drive-Thru debut Halfway Between Here and There. In 2005, the band parted ways with Drive-Thru after three releases and went on to release their next three albums through front man Matt Embree's label MDB Records as well as Sargent House. In 2006, saxophonist Steve Borth left Rx Bandits to play in Satori. By then, however, the band had already begun to lose some steam in terms of commercial success. The heyday for ska-punk had come and gone, and though the band went on to put out ?And the Battle Begun and Mandala, both of which were strong albums musically, they disbanded in 2011 after a fulfilling 16 year run.
Rx Bandits - The MusicRx Bandits is usually categorized as ska-punk, although their music takes influences from all over the spectrum. Lyrically, the band is often similar to their peers in the scene, although they have also gotten more poetic and intricate with recent albums. The someday syndrome epidemic screams, confines our dreamscapes in screens and picture frames, they sing on Hope Is A Butterfly, No Net Its Captor, She Beats Her Wings And Softly Sings of Summer Scent And Childrens Laughter (Virus of Silence). Make sure to get your Rx Bandits tickets if you ever happen to come across them, as they are quite simply now very rare.
