Culture Abuse is an American punk rock band, originally hailing from San Francisco. The band has released two full-length albums to date. The first album, titled Peach, was released in 2016 on 6131 Records.[1][2][3] In 2018, Culture Abuse signed to Epitaph Records and released their second full-length album titled Bay Dream.[4][5] Besides their music, the band is notable for their lead singer, David Kelling, having cerebral palsy. Kelling tries to fight the media narrative of “a normal human, then you have a disabled person” and show parents that “their kid can be a hero too”.[6] They have toured with Touche Amore, opened for Green Day, and have played the Reading and Leeds festival.
