Introduce yourselves- where are you from and who plays what?
We are Scuzbot, from Bensalem, Pennsylvania. We’re a four piece punk rock band that consists of Ryan Rispo and Tyler Marie on guitar and vocals, Mitch Koehler on bass and Jon Lucas on drums.
Describe your sound and lyric style
Listening to Scuzbot is like jumping into a giant robot with an arsenal of melodic sounds, big drums and energy driven songs you might find easy to relate to ; we just refer to it as ‘scuz.’ Our lyrics pretty much come naturally, like hawking a loogie onto the sidewalk.
Who are your main influences? What else inspires you?
Each of us draw our own influences, but collectively our sound rings in the vein of bands like Saves The Day and Fugazi, though we’ve also been compared to bands like Weezer. Jon’s style of drumming is really influenced by hardcore music. Life, video games and people are the inspirations to our songs.
What are you working on now?
We just released our self-titled album ‘Scuzbot’ that we’re still promoting. We’re currently playing shows all over the east coast, and we’re looking forward to making our way more towards the west and everywhere else in between.
What can people expect at your live gigs?
We have a really wide variety of fans at our shows of all ages–animals, aliens, robots, freak and geeks. You can expect to feel the heat and power that fuels Scuzbot when the four us come together to perform a live show.
