2Cents is a nu metal band from Malibu, California, known for their energetic live performances and extensive touring history.
2Cents first gained national attention with the release of Lost At Sea on Gotizm/Atlantic Records in the summer of 2006. The record, produced by veteran producer, Matt Hyde, received positive reviews from the metal community but little promotion from the label. The band took matters into their own hands, embarking on a grueling tour schedule for over two years which found 2Cents appearing at festivals such as Rock on the Range and the HFStival with some of the biggest names in the metal and rock world. They also appeared on major package tours like Sounds of the Underground and gained attention by performing at several maximum security youth facilities.
In 2009, the band headed back into the studio with Matt Hyde and signed with Eight O Five Records who released the result, Dress To Kill, digitally on December 1 of 2009. The record was released physically in January 2010. In support of the record the band joined the “Shock and Raw” tour alongside Five Finger Death Punch, God Forbid and Shadows Fall in the fall of 2009 and winter of 2010. In the spring of 2010 they opened up for Korn in the Jägermeister Tour and then in the fall of 2010 they opened up Black Label Society during Zakk Wylde's Black Label Berzerkus tour. They are Currently on Tour as opening for Devildriver and Danzig on Danzig's Deth Red Sabaoth Tour.
