Indofin, together since 2002, is a skapunkreggae quartet from Austin TX. From these very modest beginnings and years spent at what seemed like futile efforts, Indofin has certainly come a long way, becoming one of the defining bands of the central Texas scene. They managed to play showcases during SXSW from 2003-2007 and even earned a spot on TX dates of Vans Warped Tour in 2007. Since the release of their selftitled debut album in the spring of 2005, the band has played over 300 shows in over 50 US cities, as well as doing extensive regional touring around their homestate TX. Indofin has always maintained a strong DIY work ethic, booking five of their own tours, and they have never had a label, an agent, or manager. They have been fortunate enough to share the stage with many of the nation's touring acts including Voodoo GlowSkulls, Badfish Sublime Tribute, The Expendables, Outlaw Nation, The Stingers, The Supervillains, and many more. Despite playing with bands of every imaginable category, the band continues to stick out like a sore thumb in the central TX live music scene, refusing to confine their music to the boundaries of any particular genre. Stripped down now to 3 of the 5 original members, the band is taking their sound in a fresh new direction for the next record, but fans will still be able to experience the raw energy and intensity that Indofin puts into every live performance.
Currently, this eclectic group of misunderstood punker sluts released their second album on July 13 2010, and they also added former lead guitarist and founding member Eric Tussing to the band's permanent lineup. Eric had previously left the band five years ago before the band's first tour, and without much effort, he has made a seamless transition back to the band's sound and has had a positive effect on the band's music in the live setting. In the last few years, the band has endured numerous obstacles(carjackings, stolen equipment, drug & alcohol addiction etc.) and they often learned the hard way many of the cruel realities of the music industry, yet their uncompromising dedication to their craft remains stronger than ever. Indofin's staying around awhile, so be sure to check out a show if you get the chance; you won't regret it and it might even change your life.
