Skitzo Calypso is a hard rock/punk/metal act from Baltimore, MD.
Since 1996, we've written music for the dreamers! We write music for the people who want to go beyond the paradigms and believe; for the one's who understand the meaning of hope and those that trust in passion - the true crash course of a misdirected and evolving heart.
We are proof you can make an impact by simply existing - genreless, boundless and expressive. You don't need a fancy label and you don't have to write in formulas - there is no-such-thing as the perfect song!
We are just another group of misfit voices telling you to live your dreams, trust your instincts and write your song. Be a musical existentialist! Get the fuck out of the social-bubble inside your mind. If it makes them hate you, but you are able to transcend their attempt to ostracize you, you'll awaken. It's in-a-sense, the purity of the original punk mentality.
This group was founded on pure, misdirected and unadulterated raw energy - or best coined by Iggy, 'Raw Power.’ It was about conveying energy and exploring all facets of human emotion, desire and interest. It's impossible to think that a person or a band is a one dimensional entity – although, we try pretty damn hard to prove [to each other] otherwise - don't we? We enjoy pushing our own boundaries by exploring punk, funk, rock, metal, pop, jazz, indie, industrial - and we'll keep it simple by not getting into subs.
That's not to say, nothing good can come of commercial radio - that's an extremists point-of-view [and ignorant]. There are tons of great artists emerging, daily - but, hasn't it all become a little bit stale? How many cookie-cutter acts do we really need? Don't you hate knowing how many great artists the world will never hear?
Music has become polluted - plain and simple. It's up to you to clean it up! Music needs to inspire and give people the confidence to emerge - like a phoenix! Doesn't it (today) all remind you of a point [in the 90's] when Seattle's-best swooped in and gave us all a 'kick in the head?' Trust your gut, stick to your guns and 'RISE UP!'
