Beerbong are a speedy melodic punk band from Gorizia, Italy.
Beerbong formed in 1996 in Gorizia, Italy. They are known for their technical ability (especially high-speed, techinical drumming) and melodic hardcore style.
They released two demos in 1997 called "Banfi's Law" and "Crash". With these demos they played shows throughout Italy and promoted their skatepunk sound.
In 1999 an independent Canadian label, EveryBodyLoves Records, produced the band's first album "Fast And Comfortable". The band followed this release with a tour through Europe, including Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia.
In 2001 the band released an EP titled "Business Called Fun" that was dual-released in Canada and Italy. They made their first trip across the Atlantic Ocean to perform dates in Canada, in support of the new EP. Bullion Records, a Japanese label, later compiled the tracks from "A Business Called Fun" and "Fast And Comfortable", and released it under the name of the latter.
The band released their self-titled album, "Beerbong", on multiple labels including Bullion. This album was recorded at Studio 73 in Ravenna, Italy, and masted at Capitol Studios in Hollywood by Mark Chalecki (Megadeth, The Vandals, Less Than Jake). An international tour to support this release took the band through Italy, Germany, Austria, Belgium, and The Netherlands, followed by another tour leg in Japan in 2005.
Paolo Crimi, Beerbong's renowned skatepunk drummer, joined Italian thrash-metal band Extrema as a side-project to Beerbong.
Beerbong's album "Murder Party" followed in 2006, and remains their last release to date. Again, the album was recorded at Studio 73 in Ravenna, and this time the ensuing tour included Italy and Spain.
