Band name:
CRIMINAL WAVE

Date & location formed:
2013 in Chico, CA.

Reason for forming:
My friend Tommy and I (miles) both moved to Chico CA around the same time, so Tommy asked me if I’d be down to form an 80’s sounding LA hardcore band with him. He asked his other friends Sawyer and Bryan to join too and everything glued together quickly after that. What at first started as just a fun band on the side of our other bands has quickly turned into a very serious project.

We plan to tour the southwest this winter, and we are also working on getting our new album “Rural Savages” pressed on LP. Anyone interested? :)

Criminal Minds have a radical hardcore message, not doubt. Any scheduled dates for the next bay area gig? Book it and I’m there, ha!
