Biography

Simi Valley, California, USA (1992 – present)

Strung Out is a band from Simi Valley, California, USA, formed in 1992. They are known mainly for their musical style, which fuses aspects of rock and to form their primary sound. They have released nine albums on Fat Wreck Chords and appeared on numerous compilations and skate/surf videos. They have played on the Warped Tour and continue to tour internationally.

The original lineup consisted of vocalist Jason Cruz, guitarists Jake Kiley and Rob Ramos, bassist Jim Cherry and drummer Adam Austin. After releasing a self-titled 7” record, they became one of the first bands to be signed to Fat Wreck Chords, the record label owned and operated by Fat Mike of the band NOFX. Austin left the band in 1992 and was replaced by Brad Morrison who also left the band and was replaced on drums by Jordan Burns, formerly of fellow Simi Valley natives Ten Foot Pole. Their first album, Another Day in Paradise, was released in May of 1994. Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues followed in 1996. In 1998 they released The Skinny Years…Before We Got Fat, a compilation album of their pre-Fat Wreck Chords material.

The band showed notable musical growth on their 1998 album Twisted by Design, which was both speedy and technical but also punk-based and with darker overtones.

    New album is definitely best since Exile in Oblivion, maybe even Twisted by Design. Great stuff.

    I listened to the album for sure but I don't remember a single song... Not bad, but REALLY unremarkable.

    Into this album more than the last 4 so far. I'll always support them but nothing has topped Twisted By Design for me.

    New album sounds awesome so far, reminding me a lot of Exile in Oblivion. It's crazy how consistent these guys are, even if they have an album or two i wasn't amazed by, they've always made something that i can replay a few times and take a number of great tracks from.

    I really love how the remix was done for Another Day In Paradise. However, I don't like the remixes of Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues or Twisted By Design (two albums I thought sounded great originally and didn't need any changes, especially the latter). A lot of the treble is rolled off, way too much mid is pushed up in the guitars, and the kick drum sounds dull. Those 3 classics are better in their classic form. However, I do hope that the Matt Hyde mixed albums desperately get a remix eventually.
