The Prozacs are an American pop punk band formed in 2001 by Jay Gauvin (aka J Prozac). The band has appeared at events such as Insubordination Fest and Vans Warped Tour, and released four studio albums, several splits and EP'S on various independent labels.
The band's first album “Thanks For Nothing” was recorded and then released on May 16, 2003. Their first EP “Monsters Night Out” was released in 2004 on Cheapskate Records. The band released a split 7-Inch with Johnie 3 in early 2005 entitled “Turntable Not Included”. In 2005, a live album was recorded at CBGB in New York City.
The Prozacs released another split with Johnie 3 entitled “We Should Split” in March 2006. The band also played the first Insubordination Fest in Baltimore in 2006. During the tour leading up to Insub Fest, the band played with The Apers and The Leftovers. After the last show, Matty Prozac was hospitalized with a ruptured spleen, due to drinking too much.
In March 2007 the band's sophomore album “Questions, Answers, And Things Never Found” was released, followed by the release of “Stickin' With It” which was a split with New Hampshire punk band The Guts. The band released their 3rd full-length album, 'Playing The Chords We Love' which was released on CD by Cheapskate Records in 2008.
In 2015, the band did another split, this time with Darlington. In 2016, The Prozacs released a six song EP titled "A Little Something" on Outloud & Pop-A-Pill Records. The band broke up again in January 2017, but got together later that year to release the album "Exist".
