The Splints are a 3-piece Rock n' Roll band out of the Northern Virginia/Washington DC area with heavy punk rock roots and influences. We doubt they'll be mending any broken bones soon. More like shattering limbs left and right.
Lynn Dials, front-man and guitar player, beats hard on a Squire Jagmaster, ripping out hooks reminiscent of Weezer with a soul-searching howl found in early Sub-Pop bands.
DEZ, brace yourselves men. Not only does she play a mean bass guitar in a gritty rock band and wail a siren's song like a rock goddess should, she's an ex Marine. She's the kind of girl you wish you'd get your ass kicked by.
Robert Cooper, mixing a perfect combination of restraint and reckless abandon, is a solid force behind the drum kit. Pounding out beats like a madman, he is without a doubt the engine that keeps the group moving.
The Splints recorded their debut EP at Sun Studio in Memphis, TN. It's as if you can hear the ghost of Sam Phillips whispering sweet nothings in your ear as the band executes a 7 song sonic barrage, recorded live in only 6 hours.
While in Memphis the trio also won Best Video at the Memphis Indie Film Fest for their music video for the song "Stillborn".
Once at home in DC, they traveled to Electrical Audio studios in Chicago, IL and recorded their follow up disc "Love Letters and Broken Bones" with legendary recording engineer Steve Albini (Pixies,PJ Harvey,Nirvana,Stooges). Ripping through 5 tracks recorded and mixed in just a days time, the band created this sonic assault that should cause waves of lip-curling sneers and pregnant teenagers.
