An alternative rock band from Los Angeles.
Formed in September 2016, CHECKERNECK is quickly moving up in the underground LA Rock scene. They have a completely unique sound, that is both edgy and intimate. CHECKERNECK is an aggressive blend of chaos and harmony that boasts tones of grunge, alternative, punk, and garage. They draw influence from Nirvana, Cage the Elephant, Smashing Pumpkins, Black Sabbath, The Melvins, Wolf Alice, Foo Fighters and many more. More than anything they like playing together and always have a damn fun time doing it. They have rocked spots throughout the LA area including The Satellite, Velvet Jones Santa Barbara, Viper Room, Soho Santa Barbara, Canyon Club, Whisky A Go Go, Silverlake Lounge, The Trip, and The Mint. The band completed a demo EP entitled "Dirt" in May 2017, which was recorded by themselves. Since then, CHECKERNECK has recorded in professional studios, releasing another EP entitled "Tranquility". They have also released a single called "Honeymoon", and have many more songs currently being recorded, and planned to be recorded. They are continuing to frequently play live and will be planning a West Coast tour in the near future. CHECKERNECK is currently gaining an increasing following and a ton of buzz. They are definitely a band on the rise with a ton of fuel behind them and a lot of energy to give, both at live shows and in the studio!
