Founded in 2019 by Nashville-bred Bobby Banister, British transplant Beau McCarthy and later, Knoxville Tennessee drummer Garrit Tillman and bassist Cory Tramontelli from Detroit, All My Friends Hate Me is the self deprecating lovechild of punk riffs and a lifetime of bad relationships. The idea of All My Friends Hate Me was sitting at the bottom of a shitty bottle of whiskey at an industry party Bobby was dragged into and Beau gate crashed. Soon after Beau moved to LA and SoundCloud rap took over the cultural zeitgeist. Despite telling himself he would never start a band again, Bobby knew he had to do something to combat the culture. AMFHM released their first single on February 22nd, appropriately titled “Start Again”, as each member has played in touring bands before, ironically, moving LA to create something real. Throughout 2019, the band has released four songs and a few sketchy music videos. All My Friends Hate Me will drop their debut album “Metal Butterflies” in fall 2019!
