Purple Turd is an American instrumental hard rock band formed in Pueblo, Colorado in October 2011. It started with guitarist Iain Brumbaugh and drummer Michael Manzanares. Michael had asked Iain to be in his band back in 2010, but it never did work until they started to hang out more in 2011. On October 5, 2011, Michael went over Iain's house to prove that he knows how to play drums. After that, they both started to jam and realized that they had a special talent. They started to write songs at least every month. On May 18, 2012, they performed for their middle school talent show, which was their first live perfomance. They also perfomed on June 8, 2012. That was just outside while everyone signed yearbooks. On March 24, 2013, they finished their first demo. It had 13 songs on it with Iain playing lead guitar and Michael playing drum kit. On May 17, 2013, Purple Turd perfomed for their middle school talent school again. It was their last year at that school. They also performed on the last day of middle school for them on June 10, 2013. On July 13, 2013, Purple Turd performs for their first time outside of their school. They play at outside at a Harley Davidson Outpost in Pueblo, Colorado. They performed while the main band took breaks. On September 11, 2013, Frank Carver joined the band. He plays Rhythm Guitar.
