  • Shatterproof consists of five friends from Fort Collins, Colorado, who want to make music their life. Shatterproof began when the members were in high school. They immediately found something different by blending a variety of styles and instrumentation to create a musical experience for people to enjoy.

    Shatterproof is a violin-based alternative rock band with pop and punk influences. Members include Branson Hoog (lead vocals and acoustic guitar), Jeremy Marmor (lead guitar and backup vocals), Josh Schoenig (bass and backup Vocals), TJ Wessel (violin and keys) and Benji Spoliansky (drums).

    In 2012 they released their first EP "€œRunning in Circles"€ recorded at Backbone Studios in Loveland Colorado. Shortly after, they released their first music video for the single "Scissors Just Don't Cut It."

    In 2013, the band entered the Blasting Room with producer Andrew Berlin (Rise Against, Tickle Me Pink) to record two more singles. In 2014, they were the youngest band ever to be accepted into SpokesBUZZ. With the support of SpokesBUZZ, they recorded 3 more songs, enabling them to release the 5 song EP "€œDiscord Harmony"€ that year.

    In 2014, Shatterproof went on their first tour outside of Colorado. This West Coast tour allowed Shatterproof to share their music with a whole new fan base and play at a variety of venues. The final stop of the tour was at the world-famous Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood, California. The band also played a slot at Van's Warped Tour in Denver.

    In March 2015, the band played four shows at South by South West at the Colorado Music Party. They then returned home to graduate from SpokesBUZZ as part of the class of 2015.

    In 2015, the band entered the Blasting Room once again with producer to complete the EP "€œPaper House"€ featuring the single "Cookie Cutter Life"€ as well as 2 new tracks "€œKarma"€ and "€œLykos."€ They also filmed a music video with director Hudson Bloom for the song "€œKarma."€

    The EP "€œPaper House"€ was released in 2016, with release shows in Fort Colllins and Denver. Through 2016, they plan to tour and produce new music.

    So keep your eyes out for the lads in Shatterproof.
