GPF


“GPF – general protection fault“ is a young and dynamic Punk-Rock formation from around Wiener Neustadt (Lower Austria). Although the style of the band became a little harder through the course of the years, now like then melodic punk-rock-tunes harmonically combined with pressureful metal-sound are the band’s basis upon which continuous experiments with various other rhythms and styles are taking place. GPF suppose their selves to play “Melodic Core”. Read more on Last.fm
“GPF – general protection fault“ is a young and dynamic Punk-Rock formation from around Wiener Neustadt (Lower Austria). Although the style of the band became a little harder through the course of the years, now like then melodic punk-rock-tunes harmonically combined with pressureful metal-sound are the band’s basis upon which continuous experiments with various other rhythms and styles are taking place. GPF suppose their selves to play “Melodic Core”. Those who need to draw comparisons usually did with bands like “Good Riddance”, “Strung Out”, “No Use For A Name” or “Senses Fail”, for example. GPF was founded in 2001 and consisted of 3 members then – Sturmi, Lü and Gerry. Initially resident as a punk-cover-band, soon the first own songs arose from the joint band-experience of Sturmi and Lü, which they had brought along from times before GPF.

When Marlon joined the band as second guitar player in summer 2002 the band experienced an upswing on expression and musical diversity. The first joint show took place in autumn 2003 at the “Triebwerk” in Wiener Neustadt. It was a cornerstone for the affiliation to the “Neustadtpunk Network” at the end of 2003, which is also well known for bands like “Rentokill”, “Astpai” or “Ephen Rian”. A compulsive result of this progress was the release of the first “Neustadtpunk-Sampler” in January 2004, which also contains 3 songs and 1 music video of GPF. Further shows were played upon this and in March 2004 the 7-track-demo-album “Delusion” was released on “Moshpit” at the “Cselley Mühle” (Burgenland).

Shortly upon the release of the demo-album a GPF-contribution to the German “Konfisziert-Sampler vol. 3” was fixed via enemy.at. GPF were playing various shows across northern and eastern Austria upon this, when in the middle of 2005 indifferences led to the final breakup with Gerry, the former bass player, and made him and the other GPF-members strike a new path. Therefore, GPF went to the studio in August 2005 in a threesome to initiate the production of the first longplayer “Make my demon leave”. Surprised by the gigantic time span of the recordings, the band decided without further ado to pause the recordings to play their first headliner-gig. Supported by a motivated substitute for Gerry, GPF was rocking the Skate-/BMX-park opening in Wiener Neustadt, in September 2005. Afterwards the recordings were continued and since November 2005 the search for a new bass player has been ended, too.

Since then, Martin has been fortifying GPF on the bass and represents a humongous enrichment of the band’s rhythm-section by his intuitive feeling for pressure and groove. The actual cast was born. After the recordings of the longplayer „Make my demon leave”, which will be released in June 2006 by “Stagedive Records”, had been finished, the band went back on tour and has highly motivated been canvassing locations all across Austria since February 2006. Musical progress and extension of style without thinking in categories has been forming the central thought of GPF now like then. According to the motto “the journey is the reward”, the band is happy about any kind of support on its further way. Read more on Last.fm.
