Teenage Casket Company / Bio

Never afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeve, TEENAGE CASKET COMPANY have forged a strong fanbase that spans numerous rock genres. Since their formation in late 2003 the band quickly established themselves as a monster hard rock force not only in their home country but worldwide, touring with both Hard Rock and Punk Legends. The varied songwriting of both Rob Wylde and Jamie Delerict cleverly struck a chord with music fans with it's fusion of melody, catchy hooks and powerful guitar foundation. Add this to the band's electric high energy live shows the band constant praise throughout the rock press.

TEENAGE CASKET COMPANY effortlessly cut two strong indie releases on their own TrashPit Record Label - the debut album 'Dial It Up' in 2005 earning them the title of 'Underground Album of The Year' in Powerplay Magazine and the follow up EP 'Eat Your Heart Out' spawning the infectious lead single 'Don't Look At Me Like That' and it's accompanying fun video. Three years of solid touring and promotion saw the band tour the USA twice and venture into Europe to more strong, positive feedback.

Despite a break of almost two years, the TCC flame still burnt strong as the band pursued their own individual projects as members toured and wrote with the likes of 80s Rock Legends The BulletBoys, well respected Glam Frontman Stevie Jaimz, Richard Bacchus from New York Sleeze Punk Icons D-Generations and Irish Tour Dogs The Dangerfields. All the time at shows, the question was asked 'When are TCC returning'. It was clear that people truly loved this band!

Following the departure of founding member Jamie Delerict in 2009, frontman Wylde, bassist Rob 'Laney74' Lane, and powerhouse drummer Spike, forged on, refining the band's sound and hit back hard with their single 'Best Friend Is My Radio' and signed a US record deal with JAMSYNC Records to release 'Best Kept Secret', a best of CD in 2011. This was followed on Valentines Day 2012 with a follow up single/ video "Without You" a taster from the forthcoming new album. In February 2013 TCC added Silverjet Frontman/ Guitarist, Dave Kerr to the band as Lead Guitarist and performed at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool as part of the International Pop Overthrow Festival to rave reviews.

A brand new studio album titled 'STILL STANDING' will be released on the 30th September 2013.

TEENAGE CASKET COMPANY have stood true to what fueled them in the very beginning. It's always been about the combination of great hooks and an explosive live show. It's a simple blue print that has worked so far and will continue for a long time to come!
