Bio

AS FRIENDS RUST is a hardcore band. No one’s quite sure how, but it’s harder to disprove than prove. In spite of their penchant for hook-laden earworms that betray a love for jangly indie rock and melodic punk, the band presents as snide and confrontational, serving up indictments with a guitar solo, a smile, and a finger pushing into your forehead.

The band formed in 1996 in Ft. Lauderdale, but was most active in Gainesville, Florida from 1998-2002. During these years, the band toured extensively in the US and Europe, releasing a series of EPs along the way until disbanding shortly after the release of their debut LP (Won, Doghouse Records) and a final EP (A Young Trophy Band in the Parlance of Our Times, Equal Vision Records.) 2008 saw the band reunite with its core lineup, who have continued to play occasional shows since. In 2020, As Friends Rust released its first new music since 2002 (Up from the Muck 7”, Unity Worldwide Records) and the songs were hailed by long-time fans as some of their best work.
