The Backup Plan
The Backup Plan
The band recorded a five song demo in their basement and quickly sold out that first pressing at local Long Island shows. They re-recorded the demo to fatten up the sound, added an extra song, and began to play out of state on weekends, only to sell out a second pressing of the demo. After attaining a van, scouring the internet and burning through phone cards, the band booked their first DIY tour. A straight three week run of the east coast.
Their first tour clocked in at twenty shows in twenty three days, not bad for a first DIY effort. With this ethic in hand, The Backup Plan has fought every inch of the way to establish themselves as one of the top up and coming hardcore bands to watch. They’ve played in almost every state up and down the east coast and mid-west, and have had the pleasure to share the stage with such bands as Bane, Terror, Comeback Kid, Norma Jean, Beloved, Scraps And Heart Attacks, With Honor, Modern Life Is War, The Suicide File, The Distance, Against Me!, Mental, Trial By Fire, The Disaster, Kill Your Idols, Ensign, Paint It Black, Evergreen Terrace, Andrew W.K., Hum, Finch, Taking Back Sunday, None More Black, Marathon, Zero Zero, Subterfuge, Tear It Up, On the Might of Princes, I Farm, The Break, Majority Rule, Pg. 99, Avenged Sevenfold, Shai Hulud, Circle Takes The Square, Crime In Stereo, Every Time I Die and many more... As of 2005 The Backup Plan has been inactive.
They have not formally broken up but they have not done anything since then. Who knows if they will ever play again? Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
