Bandage is a four-piece punk rock band hailing from Athens, Greece. Officially originating in 2010 as a trio, the band establishes its sound on the Californian Epi/Fat era of the 90’s while adding many modern touches. Bandage play shows all over Greece before enlisting a second guitarist about two years later and finally touring abroad begins across various countries of Europe. Three releases in, the band finishes producing their sophomore LP titled “Build” in the summer of 2018 and is preparing for the record’s release on May 3rd of 2019 (Keep it a Secret Records, Lockjaw Records and No Reason Records), accompanied by as much touring as possible.
Recorded in April of 2018 at Villa Giuseppe in Athens Greece by Jacopo Fokas and mixed/mastered by Jay Maas (Getaway Recording, Boston Massachusetts / Defeater, No Trigger, Bane Tittle Fight) “Build” is the sophomore LP by Bandage, an 11 track / 35-minute long record that comes as the culmination of a two year preparational period of work by the band and the individuals in it. “Build” sees the band moving onward from their established Californian Epi/Fat sound to a more emo/pop punk framework and a very personal lyrical approach, in many ways an extremely fresh experience for Bandage. The artwork photography, handled by Theo Vranas, and the graphic layout, illustrated by Zachos Eleftheriadis, marks movement in uncharted territory for the band once more in an attempt to prepare the listener/viewer for the actual content.
