Biography

Williamstown NJ, United States (2008 – present)

1- Man Overboard is an American pop punk band from Mt. Laurel and Williamstown, New Jersey that began in 2008. Since then, they have released two EP’s, an acoustic EP, a split with Boston pop punk band Transit, a compilation of old songs and three full length albums. Taking influence from such pop punk acts as Blink-182, Saves the Day and Taking Back Sunday, Man Overboard play a brand of upbeat and poppy pop punk with the emotion of 90’s emo acts such as The Promise Ring. Well known for its motto, “Defend Pop Punk,” the band is currently signed to Rise Records.

Man Overboard was formed by childhood friends, Nik Bruzzese and Wayne Wildrick, when they began writing songs together at Nik’s Small Hill Studio. Wildrick then invited Zac Eisenstein, who at the time was vocalist of the band The Front Page which Wildrick was also a member of, to sing and play guitar. Justin Mondschein from the band Bangarang! was asked to play drums but after he, and a revolving door of other drummers left, Justin Collier (another member of The Front Page) took over drums full time. The core line up of the band was then completed. They entered the studio in 2008 to record their debut EP, Hung Up on Nothing. The band then went on a nationwide tour to promote the now out of print EP.


In November 2009, they signed with Run for Cover Records where they released a three song digital EP entitled, Dahlia, which was produced by Jesse Cannon. This was followed by a split with good friends, Transit, in December 2009.
