Based in Seal Beach, California, this band has mixed ska, punk, reggae, progressive rock and bits and pieces of everythingelseto form theirsound.

They started out amidst other California ska-influenced bands such as Reel Big Fish and No Doubt. Their first tworeleases:'Those DamnBandits' and 'Halfway Between Here and There' were heavily third wave ska-influenced. After beingsigned toDrive-Thru Records, theyreleased a more serious album entitled 'Progress.' This was the first step of the band'sevolution. Thelyrics on 'Progress' are very political,opening a window into the band's future.

With the release of 'The Resignation', the Rx Bandits have proven their musical genius. This album is filled with spine-tinglinglyrics,amazing guitar harmonies, and fantastic horn riffs. This album is truly a work of art mixing reggae, rock, andprogressiverock. The albumwas recorded live to capture the band's amazing live performance.

The band has since left Drive-Thru Records and are now self-financed through Matt Embree's record 'community': MashDownBabylon(MDB) Records.

The Rx Bandits' live performances are unforgettable. Their set is filled with improvization, audience participation, and pureloveand energy.

They have recorded and released a new album for their 2006 summer tour (available in stores in October) entitled '...AndTheBattle Begun.'Showing their musicianship demonstrated on 'The Resignation,' this band never ceases to pour out puretalent.

With their live shows becoming better and better every year, their fanbase growing larger with new listeners and oldfansfalling more in lovewith the band, and the continuation of evolution with every new album release, the Rx Banditswillcertaintly go down in history as one of themost honest bands to ever form.

Their next album is due out in July 2009, entitled "Mandala", and is greatly anticipated as a progression of their unique sound. « hide
