Shattered Faith has been writing and performing original punk rock since 1979 and are recognized as pioneers in the first wave of Southern California punk rock bands (like Social Distortion, TSOL, Black Flag, Fear, Circle Jerks, & many others from the late 70’s). These bands lived hard and fast, challenged authority, played loud, and ultimately defined the SoCal punk scene for generations to come.
The members of Shattered Faith made their mark on the scene with their dark, melodic, upbeat sound grinding out punk rock classics like ‘Reagan Country’, ‘I Love America’, ‘Right is Right’, and ‘Trilogy’. Now with the 2 new 7″ singles on Hostage Records, the band has sparked a new revival. Over the years the band has developed a loyal following that continues to this day. Now their sound is being handed down to whole new generation of kids. Together or individually they have spawned a number of Bands & Side projects over the past 35 years. Such as The U.S. Bombs, Firecracker 500, the Pushers, El Centro, Big Hippy Party, The Main, the Schitz & Bad Luck Charms, to name a few.
These guys are still churning out music & doing it with the true spirit that made them the Punk Legends they are. Shattered Faith is in a class of its own, Never conforming to what anyone else did. They know their craft & do it better than anyone.. Staying true to their sound leaving a message that is still current & will live on for generations to come.
