Skumboyz /  Richmond, VA Skum Punk

Skumboyz is a Hardcore Punk/Crossover Thrash band formed in November 2015. Originally from Fredericksburg, VA, Skumboyz now rehearses in Richmond, VA.

Skumboyz was conceived in early October 2015 by three friends that would later be known as Jake Skum (ex-BBC, The Donalds), Julius Seizure, and Kris Dickless. At the time, the three were playing in a local bar band that was making little progress, and unhappy with this project, they resolved to start their own band. Something faster. Something heavier. Something skummier.

In November 2015, now armed with little more than a name, the three needed a drummer and recruited local musician Ty Die (ex-Banned Class, LNT) to their ranks. The four had their first practice on November 19th, and played their first show a month later at a local art gallery. With this lineup, the band released the demo “8 Demos And A Basement“, and continued playing all around their hometown until the local police force began to shut down the shows, forcing Skumboyz to find new venues outside of Fredericksburg. As weeks went on, new connections were built all over the region, in particular with the DC and Richmond scenes, spawning the creation of a festival known as Snot Fest, which would bring together bands from the DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia) and beyond.

Shortly after the first Snot Fest, Ty Die would part ways with the band, and in June 2016, the three would find their missing fourth piece in Maxwell Murder (Pissing Contest) of Richmond, VA. Skumboyz subsequently relocated to Richmond, and continued to play shows all over the region, strengthening their cult following along the east coast. In February of 2017, the band released their second demo “Get Over It!“, which was featured on Jimmy’s YouTube channel, and as of June 2017, they have begun work on their debut LP.

Influences: Bad Brains, Black Sabbath, Black Flag, Children of October, D.R.I., Dead Kennedys, Descendents, G.G. Allin, GBH, The Germs, Misfits, Mötley Crüe, Municipal Waste, The Ramones, T.S.O.L.
