The Garden is a constantly evolving, conceptual punk band based in Orange County, California. Established in in 2011 by twin brothers Wyatt and Fletcher Shears, the band consistently defies categorization and continues to break ground in their self inflicted 'Vada Vada' genre*. They are the auditory invaders of the new world; borderless, informed and decentralized, slick sound released from constraint and old ideologies.
*Vada Vada: An idea that represents pure creative expression, that disregards all previously made genres and ideals.- Wyatt Shears, 2015

The twins draw inspiration from a background in punk classicism but remain unfettered and unselfconscious enough to infuse elements of 90s hip hop and big beat electronica. The Garden is the intellectual refute to critics of the post modern, pantheistic generation of music listener with an equal dose of punk irreverence and undistilled fury.

Their two-piece bass and drums essence is dirty, raw and very immediate but equally nuanced with echoes of the hive mind of the Vadaverse, the ephemeral architecture that exists both inside and outside of the duo that the listener enters and never quite escapes. Together the twins are an acidic concoction; unstable, sexy and probably toxic.

The Garden's shows are experiential, as powerful and philosophically confounding as they are glib and tricksy. There never is any time for explanations, only a sense of urgency and a rapid spiral into their parallel world. To be seduced and ensnared by mirror-image raconteurs, operating an addictive carnival ride of sound and movement that stops as abruptly as it starts, is a close approximation of The Garden experience.
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.
