Drastik IV is a hip-hop/rock band based in Austin, TX. Our sound has been linked to acts such as Rage Against the Machine and P.O.D. Recently, we released an animated video titled "Explain to Me" funded by the fans through a successful kickstarter campaign that raised over $5,000.Share
"Drastik IV is an alternative hip-hop/rock band fronted by postmodern prophet Lynn “Drastik” DeLoach. Combining elements of rap, rock, soul, and funk, this unique act cooks up a mind-bending, soul-stomping musical stew that tastes as good as it feels. With their provocative blend of social consciousness and musical mayhem, Drastik IV is guaranteed to move you . . . both mentally and physically.
They have garnered numerous accolades in recent years, including being nominated as one of the “Top 10 Hip-Hop Acts” by the Austin Chronicle, being listed as one of the “Top 5 Bands to See” at SXSW 2011 by Study Breaks magazine, and placing second in “TRCoA’s 5th Annual Best Unsigned Artist Competition,” beating out over 400 bands. In September 2011, Drastik IV was selected by Capitol View Arts and the city of Austin to represent the city at the Cutting Edge Music Business Conference 2011 in New Orleans and was named ambassador for the 2012 trip. The band performed at “Rockupy Austin,” a benefit show for Occupy Austin, and performed at City Hall during SXSW as a part of Occupy Austin’s Million Musician March for Peace."
