The Bangups is an American rock band from Grand Rapids, MI. Its members include Joey Dornbos (vocals, guitar) and Brent French (background vocals, drums). They have released two albums: Ten Dollars an Hour and their sophomore release HELLCAT! that was mastered by Emily Lazar (Vampire Weekend, The Shins, The Postal Service) at the Lodge Mastering in New York City. The Bangups' music is infused with classic undertones of the 50s and 60s. The band is electrifying, yet rare original. Their music has been licensed on various television shows including Bates Motel on the Discovery Channel and they have toured nationally on the Vans Warped Tour 2012 & 2013.
