ROLLINS BAND

search and destroy


I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself. To cut yourself out of stone.


Rollins Band was an alternative metal/post-hardcore band formed in 1987 in Van Nuys, California. Henry Rollins put the Rollins Band together, in Van Nuys, California, United States, after his previous band, the hardcore outfit Black Flag, broke up in 1986. “Borrowing” the rhythm section of former Black Flag guitarist Greg Ginn’s experimental instrumental band, Gone, their sound is very similar to Black Flag’s latter direction, playing aggressive rock with punk influences, beginning with their first release Life-Time in 1987. The band continued to mature and mix elements of metal, jazz fusion and swing beats, and with the track “Liar” from the album Weight in 1994, broke hard into the mainstream with heavy radio play and a music video for the single in heavy rotation on MTV. Success of the album got them a record contract with Dreamworks that lasted for one more album until Rollins dissolved the group citing, ‘creative stagnation.’


Rollins reformed the band in 2000 with the band members of Mother Superior while retaining the Rollins Band moniker, shaking much of their jazz elements for a more straight forward rock sound. This lineup lasted for 2 more studio albums, 2000’s “Get Some Go Again” and 2001’s “Nice”. They also produced a benefit album of Black Flag songs for the West Memphis 3 featuring tonnes of guest vocals covering old Black Flag standards.
