Shunned® is Fort Wayne, Indiana’s one and only Original, created by Brandon Thrasher and Jon Herrera in 2001. Along with Scott Earley (Koheleth) and long time friend Michael Granger(02-05), together they created a metal band that has left a lasting impression on the Fort Wayne and tri state regional scene. In 2003 they released their debut album Victims of Circumstances to the masses by hand and still remain completely Independent and self financed! In 2012 we find Jon Herrera, Brandon Thrasher along with Our brother James Gates of Born Under Burden hard at work planning the release of their newest EP and Album to be released in 2012! Shunned® has grown as both a band, an entity and as musicians! Having played local clubs and regional/national stages with such acts as Exodus, MushroomHead, WASP, Mastadon, Dope, Slaves on Dope to Grinding it out with many of our local and regional friends and neighbors such as Sirface and very close friends Born Under Burden to name only a few of the best over the years, Shunned™ once again has the future firmly it their sites and plan to take things to another level altogether both musically and along with the the Local Neck Wrecker Union 66, challenging the local and regional scene to take another look at a band that’s been there since 2001 and only getting better at what they do.
Shunned® is a member of the Local Neck Wreckers Union 66 along with Koheleth, D.T.B. and Born Under Burden!
