Formed in early 2010, Defrayal started as a jam experiment between local musicians Jake Swinney, Joey Adams, Josh Willis and Josh-Rhein Davis. The four had been playing in different bands around the area for several years and were in search of something fresh. Their variety of different playing styles and influences meshed together to create a unique sound of their own. After considering hundreds of band names (literally) they decided stick with Jake and Joey's original band name, Defrayal. After their first public show, Defrayal was asked to open for KIX at Island Bay Day 2010. Now in their upcoming 3rd year together, the band has made a name for themselves and they aren't slowing down anytime soon. Defrayal is currently in the studio recording their first EP which is scheduled for release in mid 2012.
