You probably know this much already: Teenage Bottlerocket (or simply “TBR” to their fans) is currently one of the hottest bands in punk rock and their new record, They Came From The Shadows, is highly-anticipated. But before we go any further you should probably know that they’re from Wyoming. Crazy, huh? Although more famous for its frontier forts and characters like Butch Cassidy, the “Front Range” (as it’s known to the locals) may very well be the unlikely home to the next great punk rock band. At least that’s what the kids are sayin’. But don’t take our word for it, even Alternative Press featured them as a “Band You Need To Know in 2009”… and they don’t even have those Jennifer Aniston haircuts!

The best pop-punk band you hope never gets out of prison.
THE SCUTCHES were formed by Vincent Hoffer (aka) Vincenzo in 2002, after playing drums in other bands. He got sick of band drama so he started his own band. Influenced by such Legends as Richie Valens, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Beach Boys and The Ramones. Vin recorded the first Scutches EP in 2001. He didn’t have a full band at the time nor did he even plan on touring, so Vinny played every instrument and sang. Then the first full-length in 2005, titled "Cars Goes Fast". After several line-up changes,he accepted the fact that if he wanted to tour line-up changes were inevitable. He kept the Scutches going with various friends and musicians. In 2006 Rich joined the band as drummer and backing vocalist. Rich most notably played in a band called Smelt that got some local radio airplay. Vin recorded and toured with The Guts from 2007-2008. In 2008 Vin played bass and recorded with The Sheckies at The Electric Cave (a studio co-owned by Joe King of The Queers). Followed by touring until 2010. The Scutches continued to release a full record almost every year after 2009. The Scutches are comprised of Vincent Hoffer and Rich da Silva with multiple friends switching on and off bass. We're celebrating ten years of the band and are very excited for the upcoming release. We had a lot of fun writing and recording it and hope that people will be able to hear that.
