26 Miles Per Hour, is a high energy hard-rock band hailing from Petaluma Ca, just minutes north of the S.F. Bay area. The band has recently regrouped in July 2009. 26MPH is currently finishing up new material for their, long awaited, summer 2010 full-length CD release. Since the band's inception in 1995, 26MPH has gone through various incarnations with now original member's Eric and Adam Nettleton finally reigniting the fire which is 26MPH! Drummer, Kevin Fitzgerald and Bass player Mike Boyer have added to the completion of what critic's say is the most complex offering of angry and explosive, yet passionate melodic sounds the band has ever offered. 26MPH originally started off with more alternative/punk/grunge influences, but since has progressed into a heavy juggernaut that incorporates the intensity of metal and hardcore styles, while maintaining quite an array of melodic melodies and influences. The band has played shows spanning the Nor Cal region, and sharing the stage with such national acts as: Papa Roach, Alien Ant Farm, Halestorm, Adelitas Way, Will Haven, Hoods, Sevendust, Kittie, Kotton Mouth Kings, Murder Dolls, Will Haven, Agent Orange, and Sprung Monkey to name a few. 26MPH offers two past DIY full-length releases 'Apathy' and 'Walk Alone' and most currently their label release off Popsmear Records, 'Redefine' which incorporates a mix of hard-edge influences and is rated one the bands heaviest and melodic to date. Although, with the looming release of their newest album approaching. The air is buzzing with anticipation and excitement! With their driving hard work ethic and support for the local music scene you will no doubt be hearing about the band 26 Miles Per Hour soon!
