Stopper exploded onto the Atlanta punk rock scene in 1993. They quickly became known for their volatile stage shows and wild antics. In their heyday, they played with such national acts as Citizen Fish, Fear, Rancid, and the Meatmen.
The group disbanded in 1996, but reunited in 2012 to raise money for frontman, David Shumate, sentenced to 20 years in prison after a failed suicide attempt in a drugstore. There is a documentary in production currently about them..."Stopper: The Rise and Fall of the Bastard Squad". Visit www.savestopperdave.com for more details on their efforts.
