Rabbit Junk is a Seattle based digital hardcore band, that formed in 2004 by former The Shizit frontman J.P. Anderson. Taking influences from such diverse music genres such as hip hop, nu metal and new wave, JP has called this sound "Hardclash".[1]

History[edit]

Rabbit Junk started in 2004 after the dissolution of JP Anderson's first band, The Shizit. After adding additional vocalist Jeniffer "Sum Grrl" Bernett to the band, the husband and wife electro-rock duo released their self-titled debut album titled Rabbit Junk in 2004.[2] One year later, the band signed to Glitch Mode Recordings and released the follow-up to their debut album called REframe, which gained the band a stronger and more broad fan base.[3]

They showcased heavier sound and influences from different styles, such as Black metal and Industrial metal/Digital hardcore band The Mad Capsule Markets. A video for the song "In your head no one can hear you scream" was produced by the Kandycore Design Company. The project would later become a Live band, as JP added live guitarists and percussion to live shows.

After REframe was released, Rabbit Junk contributed the song "Industrial IS Dead" to the Glitch Mode compilation CD Hordes of the Elite. Later, a cover of Atari Teenage Riot's "Start The Riot" appeared on the D-Trash Records Atari Teenage Riot tribute album called "The Virus Has Been Spread".

2007 and onwards[edit]

In October 2007, the first two Rabbit Junk albums were remastered by Tom Baker (who has worked with Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails and The Bloodhound Gang), when the band signed onto the record label known as Full Effect. The band released a follow-up to REframe entitled This Life Is Where You Get Fucked on April 28, 2008. The album is a concept album, which consists around three 'suites', having their own themes drawing from specific influences for each facet. "Ghetto Blasphemer", "This Death Is Where You Get Life" and "The Struggle" are the three separate pieces that formed the album This Life is Where you get F*cked into an entire presentation.[1]

In September 2008, Rabbit Junk released 3 new songs on their MySpace page for download, titled "Power", "Blood" and "Home".[1]

The second part of Rabbit Junk's "Ghetto Blasphemer" suite, based on the works of HP Lovecraft, were released in July 2009 on their official site.

The second part of "This Death Is Where You Get Life" is finished and can be listened to on the band's MySpace. However, Anderson has not released the songs for download due to talks with his record label about a possible "Project Nonagon" album release.[1]
