Biography

The Arkhams are a three-piece rock n roll band from Queens, NYC, favoring music ending in the suffix “-abilly”, Not just another psychobilly band, not just another rockabilly band, they play music like you’ve never heard (except for the covers, some of which some of you may have heard.), while still respecting your good taste. The Arkhams have a sound that blends all their influences together, yet keeps a coherent, consistent, characteristic, signature sound. With the name “Arkham” being a reference to a town made infamous in H.P. Lovecraft lore (and simultaneously an asylum in Batman comics, that itself being a tip of the hat to Lovecraft), it’s no surprise that the songs have recurring themes of insanity. The Arkhams thrive on their musical (and personal) eccentricity, while nodding to those whom have influenced them. A live set is a sharp shock, with most songs connected to the next, relenting few times between songs for slow songs or quick breathers and then onto the next aural assault. Formed in 2006 as a side project (and has subsequently surpassed side project status), the Arkhams have already shared stages with the Meteors, The Nekromantix,Zombie Ghost Train, The Kings of Nuthin’, Three Blue Teardrops, the Koffin Kats, the Chop Tops, the Scofflaws, The Aggrolites, Sasquatch & the Sick-a-Billys, Al & the Black Cats, to name a few, with more to come.

    "Far, far too under-rated. Come on! At least play it on the radio once!" I don't know of any psychobilly bands that get played on the radio... Unless you listen to college radio, but even then, they usually don't play it.
