As one of the most surprising trio of musicians Long Beach, CA has ever seen, SPEAKOUT! hooks in its audience with heavy rhythm sections, ensnaring leads, catchy melodies, and memorable lyrics. Guaranteed to get you bobbing your head and singing along, the hard-rock/punk band stays true to their roots while still separating their sound from the rest of the scene. Finalizing a lineup in January 2013, the three-piece released their debut EP "This Treason" on April 16, 2013, which received positive feedback from their loyal fan base. Founded by singer/guitarist Aaron Werstine, SPEAKOUT! urges their fans to use their voices to "speak out" against injustices in their lives. The group's rhythm section is composed of bassist Joey Leon and drummer Mitchell Puchalski. SPEAKOUT! presents the crowd with an energetic and fun show that always leaves the audience screaming for more. A couple notable venues the group has played are the House of Blues in Hollywood and Chain Reaction in Anaheim, drawing upwards of 50 people to each venue.
However, just recording music and putting on shows aren't enough for the band. They want to use their music to help make the world a better place, and in September of 2013, SPEAKOUT! ran a fundraiser to help send relief to 9/11 victims' families and war vets. The band's driving music, heartfelt personality, and remarkable shows separate them from the rest of the herd. See if SPEAKOUT! is playing a show near you!
"Waiting for opportunity to knock on your door or a problem to fix itself is like waiting for the thief to come back with your stolen purse. You can wish it so all you want, but faith is only fulfilled when someone acts toward your wishes. Be that someone, make the changes you want to see, and speak out wherever and whenever you witness injustice in this world." -- SPEAKOUT!
