SPLNTR is an original punk rock band from Orange County, California, which was formed in 1993 by original members Lieu on Drums and John on Lead Guitar, Erick Armeson on vocals. After a hiatus from performing live, SPLNTR returns in 2014 with a new line up- Erick Armeson on vocals, Eric Le on bass, Jphn Ader on Guitar and Lieu on Drums
Inspired by the energy the new members have brought with them, John has cranked out 4 or 5 new songs to supplement old favorites as SPLNTR works towards creating a second album's worth of new material. The excitement is building to debut what we think are going to be new classic material for SPLNTR fans.
Since the writing of this bio a few months ago SPLNTR has opened for such acts as Jello Biafra, Angry Samoans, FEAR, JFA, Batallion of Saints, Decry, Boobie Trap and Anarchy Taco, X,Shattered Faith, DI and more.
Back in the day, Flipside made this comment about SPLNTR's sound:
“They remind one of Black Flag and Minor Threat careening down hill with no brakes with Jello Biafra driving”
With X band members of White Mice, Masque of Demise , Dischords, Broken Patron Saints,
SPLNTR has recorded for Dr. Dream Records and Posh Boy as well as releasing a Split compilation with a Texas band in late 2009. Erick Armeson has been a guest vocalist on The Lucky Devis album out of Seattle and On Rikk Agnews "Turtle" album.
