BÖNDBREAKR of Austin, TX blends metal riffs, dark psychedelia, blistering levity, and auditory mayhem to create a unique hardcore sound. BÖNDBREAKR’s latest single "Polite Society", recorded and mixed by Elliott Frazier (Ringo Deathstarr) and mastered by Adrian Benavides (Bilderberg Music), premiered on acclaimed music site AfroPunk.

Since opening for powerhouse acts Pleasure Venom, Fuck Money, Lesibu Grand, and more at SXSW Music Festival 2022, BÖNDBREAKR has played shows with heavy-hitting acts such as H.R. (Bad Brains), Pinata Protest, Drakulas, Voice of Addiction, Hellfury, and Dead Register. Additionally, the four-piece collaborated with esteemed bassist, banjo player, and songwriter JD Pinkus (Melvins, Butthole Surfers) on a cover of The Melvins’ “Bride of Crankenstein” (Black Donut Records) which was released in winter 2022.

BÖNDBREAKR will return to Wolfshield Studios to record a follow-up EP, scheduled for release in summer 2023.
