Q: Where did all of your songs go?!?!?!?!?
A: The Banned is currently selecting which songs (or demos) are to be produced for our up and coming EP. We hope to be releasing new material in the next few weeks. Until then please take some time to enjoy 2 unique additions to our sound. "Luscious Lime" written by long time friend and mentor R.S. King is a monster guitar jam! "Backstage Devil" written by old friends Randy Blitchock and Bill Auiler (Heathrow Gunn) is a West Coast rock anthem done Detroit style. We would like to personally thank Randy, Bill, and Mr. King for not castrating us for adding these songs to our set over the past few months. Take some time to listen to these 2 songs because they will be removed from our line up once we are ready for our debut release. Thank you to all the fans and we will be seeing you soon!
