Biography

(2003 – 2009)

The Jonbenét began in the sweltering Houston summer of 2003. Shortly after, the band recorded a 7-song demo. Following a lineup change, they self-released a five-song EP entitled “Five Stories Retold.” Not more than five months later, the band self-released three new songs on a split EP with fellow Houston band The Kidnap Soundtrack. During all this time, The Jonbenét hit the road hard, embarking on three DIY tours. Two full US (including Canada), and one of the west coast.

The music of The Jonbenét consists of a blend of indie stylings, metallic urgencies, and a post-hardcore sense of delivery laced with southern elements. Before the band’s most recent US tour, The Jonbenét were approached by Pluto Records. After signing with the label, Pluto released “The Plot Thickens,” a discography of sorts, combining remastered versions of both self-released EPs recorded in the past year. Since the release of “The Plot Thickens,” the band has toured heavily…

The band has completed work on their debut full-length, “Ugly / Heartless,” which is in stores now.

In late of 2009 the band ended their musical journey.

    Can last.fm somehow combine my The Jonbenét and The Jonbenet plays? I don't like how some of my plays have the wrong tags.

    I remember back in 04 when I discovered Ugly/Heartless while I browsed a hot topic (To see wtf hot topic was since there aren't any in Canada) and I fell in love. And now I just reminded myself how much I loved this band. I can't believe they haven't put anything out since then. Are they even still together?
