Biography

Based out of NY, Bensin has been at it for just under 3 years. With a collective passion for touring, Bensin has taken their undeniably explosive and energetic live show on the road during it’s past 2 years of existence, creating a buzz touring the continental United States heavily. After 6 full U.S. tours, you may have caught them anywhere from a headlining tour, to ESPN’s D-Tour, to your neighborhood basement show. The band has a sound that is truly their own, mixing keyboards with catchy vocals, melodic punk hooks, rock, and drumming that is second to none.

The band has two songs featured on a Rockstar video games (Grand Theft Auto) release which is out now called Motocross Mania 3. Their music will also be featured in the upcoming film 'Funny Money' starring Chevy Chase (in theaters Spring 2006).

Bensin recently played on the Camplified Tour (www.camplified.com) which consisted of a tour that hit summer camps throughout the Northeastern U.S. This tour was a great success for the band and gained them a ton of exposure amongst an age group that they normally could not reach out to on a typical tour.

Bensin was also recently invited to play at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA for the Paintball World Series 2005! They played all 3 days of the Series' duration, along side such celebrities as Linkin Park, Cypress Hill and Will Smith.

The band has logged over 210 shows in a year's span and they don't plan on slowing down. Named 103.3 The Edge's Next Wave 'Buffalo Band of the Year'.

The band has opened for such acts as:

MTV’s Jackass “Don’t Try This At Home Tour” (Steve-O), The Starting Line, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Living End, Mae, Armor For Sleep, Billy Idol, Relient K, The Ataris, Less Than Jake, Mest, Boys Night Out, Mustard Plug, Catch 22, The Long Beach Dub Allstars and many more.
