Usurp was born in Lafayette, IN. Through numerous line-ups they continued to push the envelope of the then-burgeoning “screamo” sub-sub-genre of punk rock. Their music was available on several compilations and 7” records, including a split release with Jerome’s Dream, with whom they toured the United States, on Clean Plate Records. All their releases have been compiled and released on a discography CD, Disinformation Fix, on Alone Records. Antonio Leiriao moved from New York to Indiana to sing for the band in 1999. The band utilized unconventional marketing methods, such as a die-cut album cover folded into the shape of a penis entering a vagina, and the inclusion of a razor with a record that promoted suicide on Electric Human Project.

They reformed as a 4-piece in the year 2004, recorded a full length album, then unfortunately had to cancel a uk tour in 2005 which was supposed to be with phoenix bodies. They have been inactive since.

On August 25th, 2008 Usurp Synapse final release “A Vile Contamina” was finally made available through the bands official Myspace page. “It’s the whole shebang; all the tracks listed into a part one and two - don’t ask for lyrics; don’t ask for song titles. Enjoy. Your discography is now incomplete.. http://www.myspace.com/usurpsynaps.

John Scott - Vocals, Keyboard. Travis Chance - Drum. Don Kirkland - Guita. Tony Dryer - Bas. Brandon Harris - Guita. Antonio Leiriao- Vocal.

Members of the band have since performed in Fax Arcana, Thin Fevers, and others. « hide
