Born Under Punches is a Charlotte based Alternative/Progressive Rock power trio that really grabs the listener's attention. After hitting the music scene in 2008, they have developed a great following in the Eastern USA. With musical influences and comparisons to Rush, Incubus and tapping into hints of System of a Down, Born Under Punches teases the audience with dynamics, impacting song structures and pure originality.
This energetic rocking three piece band creates a sound that delivers melodic vocal harmonies, distorted and tasteful guitar, backed by a drum and bass section that will keep your ears wanting more.
Working with Chris Kress, one of the Dave Matthews Band recording engineers, the full length album “Hubkenipkenäp” was recorded and hit the market beginning of 2011. To those of you who wonder what “Hubkenipkenäp” means, it's a made up word by guitarist Todd explaining how it sounds to him when German bass player Carsten talks in his mother tongue.
