Stage Banter takes inspiration from different styles within the punk genre. It's no secret that most of it comes from the 90's school of Epitaph and Fat Wreck Chords. Think Southern Californian skatepunk, as made great by the likes of Pennywise and Lagwagon, but with the frayed and unpredictable sound of the almighty Dillinger Four.
The band creates a wall of energy on stage and tries to address social issues with its lyrics. At the end of the day, having fun is the main objective. So tie your shoelaces, try a modest stagedive or a human pyramid in front of the stage. Anything is fine, as long as it's a party!
Their first five track EP "Tightrope Walking" was released on 8 november 2019 on North Empire records.
