Bio :: The Millipede: A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a band… that does not exist. Five loners on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law.
In a town full of game developers and other high tech types, they answer the call for a band with genuine nerd cred. In a genre associated with anemic vocals and cheap sounding synthesizers, they deliver to the masses what industry experts refer to as “Bad-Ass Rock And Roll”. Blending elements of Punk and Metal with subject matter such as the Karate moves of Captain Kirk, Cobra’s recruiting strategy, and the overly complicated rules of Dungeons & Dragons, along with a vocal style that has been compared to Jello Biafra, Lee Ving, and Gary Floyd of The Dicks by literally several drunken idiots downtown, [UPDATE-Now featuring lady singin'!] The Millipede is unlike any other band in Austin.
The band was formed by Frank (Black Panda) on vocals, and Jack (Black Panda, Get To Da Chopper!!!) on guitar. Later, Dan (bass, Lone Star Demons) and Derek (drums, Dead Haven) signed on when their former rhythm section departed to fight intergalactic crime, grow serrano peppers, and have babies. The band’s devastating awesomeness was now undeniable, but they needed one more member to form a proper Voltron, and so they added the adorable Stephanie to sing backups and give the nerds something to look at besides four sweaty, hairy dudes. Now, no power in the ‘Verse can stop them!
