About Midriff

3 childhood friends from Minnesota who started playing ska and punk music after being influenced by bands like Sublime, Goldfinger, Operation Ivy, Less Than Jake, Rancid and NOFX.

Midriff often sings about corruption and the corporate media machine. The bands name, “Midriff” , is inspired from a PBS documentary called “Merchants of Cool”.

The recordings were finished, mixed and mastered in their bedroom.
