Truckside Down offers a powerful, infusing energy mixed with the raw emotion of hardcore punk. They are an indie punk band bound by shared experiences.
When the members of the band, Joel, Bull, and Josh, formed the band they had the ambition to show the world a new and better style with old influences of punk rock. Joel and Bull decided they wanted to make music after the dissolution of their first band. Since they both knew Josh, it seemed only natural for the three to make the music they have now perfected into the magic that everyone sees on stage. Through their show of angst and blood they have given in every show, and in every lyric, Truckside Down has the world on the ropes…they have no intention of letting go any time soon.
The band returned to the Oklahoma City scene after a five year hiatus back with a new sound and new animosity. They recently recorded a few singles that can be heard on any of their social media pages. The band plans to start their new album in 2014.
This punk trio offers a stage presence full of energy and stylish neck wounds. Thanks to the band’s on stage antics and bad decision making abilities (yay – free beer), TSD performances are never the same and never lack entertainment.
Joel is the band’s singer and guitarist. He is also currently using the band as a means to help him to get through college.
Bull is the band’s bassist and back up vocalist. He shows the world the band’s message of anger and misanthropy through every note he plays.
Josh is the band’s drummer and resident pots and pans banger with his additional “Huhs.” Josh has never let his hearing impairment stop him from being one of the best drummers in the state. The shy and almost awkward one of the band, Josh completely changes once he gets behind the drums.
