The Japhies have fought hard to reattach the severed testicles of the desecrated modern rock and roll sound. With catchy hooks, driving rhythms and more volume than the average rock band is willing to endure, The Japhies have punched out a defined spot at the rock table.
Formed in 2010, The Japhies are a quadrangle of power comprised of frontman Reed Wilkerson, guitarist Ben Hovorka, bassist Matt Homan and drummer Anthony Gore.
Their seminal EP, “The Japhies” (Mar. 17, 2011), marks a new era in the annals of rock and roll.
People seem to have trouble defining that rocking Japhies sound. At their numerous regular shows The Japhies always leave their audiences awestruck and ready to sign up for the coming army of rock. A refreshing change from the wave after wave of subdued art rock that infests music scenes on a national scale, The Japhies are true performers that always leave the stage covered in sweat.
Legend has it that these four musicians came from the future (or space) to conquer the drudgery of self-indulgent, introspective “rock” music sucking the life out of teenagers and misguided adults everywhere.
You want to play it safe: stay home, throw on some prog-rock and drink a bottle of wine from Trader Joe’s. You want to live: go see The Japhies; let them change your life.
