Biography

A culmination of vast influences and a love of thoughtful improvisation was the simple spark to the beginning of Burbis in 2002. Raised on live music and a vast record collection, along with a philosophy to question, create, and enlighten, three brothers set out to challenge the landscape of rock and roll. Their determination to be inspired by what is known, as well, as question WHAT is known, is the constant thread between brothers Len, Andy and Josh (Longo).
The heart and soul of Burbis can be found in the live performances. While adhering to a set list, songs often melt into each other with intense improvised interludes. Although Burbis has a style and sound all their own, their music is an obvious fusion of post indie rock, metal, drum n bass, jazz, and classic rock. The diversity in Burbis' music has allowed them to play alongside with a very wide range of acts including: Year Long Disaster, The Gloria Record, Horse the Band, Behold the Arctopus, Caspian, Atom & His Package, World Inferno Friendship Society, Immortal Technique, The Banner, My Chemical Romance.
After a series of member changes, Burbis came to their strongest lineup when adding Robert Miguel on synth/keys and Pete August on rhythm guitar. As a five piece, Burbis has reached a new level of intensity, writing compositions rich with spatial dynamics. In the fall of 2007, they entered the studio well practiced and anxious to put down the sound they collectively described as "epic." Finally, in February 2008, Burbis released their first full length album entitled "Curse of the Golden Dracula." They are currently booking a summer tour and are ready to conquer anything that crosses their path.
