Utrecht, The Netherlands (2005 – present)

John Coffey was formed in 2005 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Begin 2012 John Coffey tore down a small pub somewhere in Groningen during the Eurosonic
Festival. 30 minutes of sheer guitar loudness left the audience in awe with ringing ears and renewed punkrock hope. It got them a record deal on German based Redfield Records. Distribution in the
Benelux will be done by Suburban Records and bookings are done by Rock ‘n Roll
Highschool in the Netherlands and Sparta Bookings in Europe.


After a year of hard work, rehearsal space fights, torn cymbals and moulted amps John

Coffey travelled up north to Sweden in November 2011 to cooperate with producer
Pelle Gunnerfeldt (The Hives, Refused) and Jag Jago (ex-guitar player The Ghost Of a
Thousand). Surrounded by Grammy Awards, they recorded their album in the legendary
Gröndahl Studio.

Being flat broke, John Coffey was massively supported by their fans who, through
Sellaband, donated their money like it was going out of fashion. All to get the band to

The Result is ‘Bright Companions’. A raw punk/rock n’ roll record written during an
intense year the band had while making it. A year in which part of the band travelled to
Asia to work on the record on desolate roads, in a hospital and in a Phnom Penh slum,
while the other half laboured endlessly in dark Utrecht rehearsal spaces. A conversation
between five friends about fear of change, vultures, Romans and The Bomb. Musically a
mixture of punkrock, screamo, metal and modern hardcore. Presented with a big shot of
rock n’ roll bravery.

In October 2009 John Coffey released its debut album VANITY on Sally Forth Records
