UNWRITTEN LAW

Biography

Scott Russo – vocals
Wade Youman - drums
Jonny Grill – bass
Chris Lewis – guitars


Southern California’s UNWRITTEN LAW has become synonymous with the sounds of summer by releasing some of the most celebrated rock records of recent memory, touring the world to play for sold out crowds, holding the #1 slot on the Billboard Modern Rock charts and becoming a staple of the summer’s biggest festival, Vans Warped Tour. Not only have they become rock idols but also they have overcome pitfalls that would end the careers of most bands in order to remain relevant as others from the scene fade away. Now UNWRITTEN LAW is set to return with SWAN, their sixth studio album due out March 29 on BreakSilence Recordings/Suburban Noize Records.

Marred by drugs, alcohol and personal struggles, UNWRITTEN LAW channeled their problems into writing and have crafted one of the most personal rock records of their career. “There was a lot of interpersonal turmoil going on with the band itself and in our personal lives when we were making this album,” recalls Unwritten Law guitarist Steve Morris. One such battle came in the form of front man Scott Russo losing his house and possessions in a terrible fire last year; however the band battled back in the face of adversity to make Swan. Anthemic songs such as lead single “Starships and Apocalypse” and “Dark Dayz” make this record the catchiest UNWRITTEN LAW record yet.

“It took a long time to write this record because we were creating something real in a time when fake, bullshit, phony music rules the airwaves,” commented Russo. “It seems like artists have forgotten the art of creating an album.
