Formed in early 2007 in Bloomington, Indiana, the Buzzkills barely resemble their first incarnation as an unheard of hard rock side project. Today The Buzzkills are fast becoming a staple of the mid-west music scene. With a wide array of influences from jazz to metalcore, the group manages to blend the sound of the great classics with modern rock and progressive music.

“There’s definitely an interesting mix of influences within the group”, according to drummer Matt Schory, ” the common factor is that we all sort of started in the same place; with bands like the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. Our music comes from that base and then we inject of our own personal musical tastes.”

The core of the Buzzkills’ sound comes from the writing of John Weston and Kyle Gilpin. When asked about the bands writing process Weston explains, “Every song is a bit different. Sometimes Kyle or I will have a nearly finished song and everyone will add their own personal touch. More and more a song will start out as a basic idea like a melody or an idea for a cool chorus and everyone will just throw around stuff from there.”
