Censored has been making a name for themselves across the Midwest, ranking highly on the local charts and drawing huge crowds across many regions. Censored released their first single, "Am I Dying or Not?" in mid 2006, an emotionally driven alternative hard rock piece that spiked immediate attention in the local and regional scene. Songs like "Wrong Road" depict a relationship gone awry, while "Slutty Girl" captures the irony in today's society, and became a universal favorite amongst Midwest rockers. Censored is now posed to release their new CD in early 2009. The first single off the new CD, "Things We Hate" is already receiving radio play and quickly climbing the charts.

This rapid success has allowed Censored to share the stage with huge acts such as: The Ataris, Flaw, Machina(Future Leaders of the World), and many more. Censored participated in the Mid-American Music Festival, Verus Festival, and was selected to compete in a nationally televised competition, known as BodogMUSIC Battle of the Bands.

Censored owns their own recording studio, where they record, mix, and master all of their songs. With their unique high energy shows, catchy songs, and motivation to match, Censored's mix of alternative hard rock is destined to be a defining force in modern popular music.
