One Man Army is an American punk rock band that was formed in San Francisco, California, in 1996 and separated in 2005 and reunited in 2011. The band was discovered by Billie Joe Armstrong while playing in an East Bay club, and their debut album Dead End Stories was the first release on Adeline Records, Armstrong's label.
Originally consisting of Jack Dalrymple (guitar, lead vocals), Brandon Pollack (drums), and James Kotter (bass), the members at the time of separation were Dalrymple, Heiko Schrepel (bass, backup vocals) and Chip Hanna (drums).
Dalrymple still plays guitar for the Swingin' Utters. Jack was also guitarist and singer for Dead to Me, formed with Brandon Pollack. On July 31, 2009, Dead to Me announced that Jack was no longer recording or touring with the band, in order to devote time to his newborn baby, Jack Dalrymple III. Dalrymple also started another band with fellow Swingin' Utters members Spike Slawson and Darius Koski, called the Re-Volts.
In 2011 it was announced on the Adeline Records website that One Man Army had reunited, and that Adeline Records planned to re-release One Man Army's first two albums. The reunited line-up is Jack Dalrymple, Heiko Schrepel, and Brandon Pollack. A 4 song EP entitled "She's an Alarm" (produced by Jamie McMann) was released in Aug 2012 on green and pink neon 7" vinyl. "She's An Alarm" and their first 2 albums were also released digitally at this time.
On April 6, 2015, bassist Heiko Schrepel was reported to have died.
