Band: Keeper
From: Phoenix, Arizona

Their formation story:
(Greg Kerr, vocals): "Our drummer had been writing songs for years, recording the guitars, bass and drums, in hopes of forming a band of like minded musicians to play together. We all come from different areas of the country and have played in different bands over the years, but ended up in the Phoenix area and through happenstance, came together to work on his collection of songs.

"Once I joined as the singer, the final group of songs quickly began to shape and push us forward into recording."

Their sound in their own words:
"We wanted to represent the style of hardcore we grew up with in the late '90s/early '00s that focuses on the classic hardcore styles embedded in us from our youth."

Latest release info:
"Control is a collection of songs written over the past few years, but solidified as a band in the past few months. Once we got the right pieces in place, the songs came together quickly into their final form. It’s been years in the making and we are excited to finally have music out in the world." 

Future plans:
"We are trying to get the word out there, play shows, have fun, and continue to write new music."  

What other bands from their region should we check out?
"The Phoenix hardcore scene has been exploding again. We’d suggest checking out Locked Down, X Mientras, and Overstand."
