""RPG kill it live""

”RPG...kick up a shitload of noise on their debut full length. Coming on like Detroits' Dirtbombs after chewing red peppers for a week, The extremely raw RPG will satisfy the fans of Motorhead
and the Supersuckers.” - METAL EDGE MAY 2005


""Bands to look out for""

"The hairy, heavy, high energy quartet known as RPG comes from the same Richmond Virginia scene
that birthed Lamb of God, but the groups 13 song debut sounds much more like the MC5 and
the Stooges circa 1969. Standout tracks like "Nazi Mindreader," "Early 72," and "Song Of Evil"
feature frontman Matt Conner wailing soulfully over relentless drum fills, surging bass lines and
bluesey guitar leads hot enough to burn a chunk of hash. RPG's ability to kick out the jams is
impressive indeed." 3 &1/2 stars - DAN EPSTEIN, REVOLVER


""Live Reviews""

"...A powderkeg of a four piece armed with volume and destruction on their minds..."
- STONERROCKCHICK.COM


""Live Reviews""

"...With more hair than Dr. Teeth And The Electric Mayhem, RPG will turn your speakers inside
out with good old-fashioned Virginia rock. If "Stand Still Blues" don't get your fist pumping, you
should check for a pulse." - TRANSWORLD SNOWBOARDING


"RPG to Hit the Mile High City"

"RPG... unleash enough raw power and Motor City swagger to make Lester Bangs do the mashed
potato in his grave." - DENVER WESTWORLD

Bio

Formed in 1999 from members of Hose.Got.Cable, Burn the Priest and the Pushers, RPG started playing shows and tearing up the east coast with bands like ATP and All Night. They released two six song ep's before releasing thier first album "Full Time" in October of 2003. Eventually, they went through three pressings totaling 10,000 copies during three full length US tours in about a year. "Full Time" was was re-released the spring of '04 on Austin Tx based Arclight records and included a highly acclaimed DVD about the band entitled "High Performance." After original bassist Tony Brown left the band, RPG went threw a number of replacements before settling on Sony recording artist Lamb of God's bass player, John Campbell as a permanent replacement. After two years of work, and more touring, the bands sophomore record "Worth the Weight" is set to be released in Fall '08. US and European tours are in the works for fall '08 through spring '09.
