The Pristeens was originally created by Jon Upchurch in the summer of 2011, and after half a year of trying cry baby drummers, extremely tall singers, and a few baboons on the bass, the current line-up formulated. Jon Upchurch (lunchboxx) plays guitar and is the main vocalist, bringing a rough punk basis for the music. Kieran Shakeshaft (McQuack) adds a dark and edgy foundation to the songs, with driving metal bass lines with a slight hint of funk. The newest addition, Joe Cacciapo (Akimbo Joe), adds a tight and powerful drum section, holding the punkyness of Jon and the darkness of Kieran in check and on time. Overall The Pristeens are a fusion of punk, metal, and darkness, and are willing to do whatever it takes to have their music heard, wether you like it or not, is up to you.
