Members: Rob- Erik- Gary- Joe- Vinny
Childhood best friends from Central New Jersey came together in May of 1998 to form The Bank Robbers.
Fueled by raw passion, The Bank Robbers deliver honest, intense songs that bridge the gap between post-hardcore and rock. Intricate, powerful guitars, a solid rhythm section, and soaring vocals take The Bank Robbers a step above their counterparts. With a solid first release of strong melodies and intense musical composition under their belts (2003's The Pattern Reversed), The Bank Robbers have found their place and their sound.
On the evening of May 18, 2005, at The Continental Airlines Arena, Robert Nardone and Vinny Auletta were invited on stage to sing and perform I Still Havent Found What Im Looking For with the legendary U2. The very next day The Bank Robbers were contacted for interviews in a variety of print and digital publications. This larger than life experience was covered with a photo by ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE in the June 16, 2005 issue.
The following month The Bank Robbers entered Underground Sound Studios (Slipknot, Kittie, Biohazard) with producer Mike Turner, to begin tracking their sophomore album. The band was able to take their time, experiment, and capture a record that showcases the bands mature songwriting ability that focuses on structure and chorus, as well energy and passion. The band describes Tomorrow Belongs To Me as a record that listeners of all ages can relate to. It is compiled of a dynamic range of rock songs that showcase the bands love for many different styles of music.
After the sessions were wrapped, The Bank Robbers hit the road with a strenuous tour schedule hitting almost every state in the country. Fresh off a two-month tour of the US with Drive-Thru recording artists Socratic and House of Fools, the band made a stop in Austin, TX to perform at SXSW 2006. Their energetic set caused a frenzy of flash bulbs as photographers rushed to snap pictures of the band breaking glasses while swinging mic stands like baseball bats to create feedback during the bridge of their closing song.
With a solid two-month tour and a spot on the legendary SWSW under their belts, the band plans on touring nonstop throughout the US in the coming months in an attempt to not only gain new fans, but to also showcase their strict work ethic and convey their love for the new record.
