A Bullet For Pretty Boy is a post-hardcore/metalcore band founded in 2006 in Longview, Texas. Formed by several close friends, the band decided to name themselves after infamous bank robber Charles "Pretty Boy" Floyd. By December 2006 the band played their first show and no one came.... A Bullet for Pretty Boy hasn't looked back since , followed up by the self-released EP "Beauty in the Eyes of the Beholder" the following year.
With some solid experience at their back, and clear road before them, A Bullet for Pretty Boy finally feels like a complete set. They've poured all their energy into this project and absolutely love writing, recording and especially performing their music. "We've had our struggles in the past, what band hasn't?" says guitarist Derrick Sechrist, "But every time we get up on that stage and feel the energy of the crowd, we know we're doing something special. That energy, that's our fuel, that's what drives us to excel." Spreading the amazing message of Jesus Christ among a traditionally disenchanted youth certainly merits at least a second look. "We understand that the message of Jesus is complicated," adds keyboardist Joshua Modisette, "But we also understand the need for his message. It's an uplifting, inspirational message and a critical balance to the violence and nihilism that dominates the scene today. We feel it's time people started caring about that message again, and we know that with His help we can make that happen."
ABFPB was signed to Artery Recordings (distributed through Razor & Tie) in December 2009 and plan to release a full length album later in 2010. The band will tour in May and June 2010 on the Welcome to the Circus Tour with Asking Alexandria, We Came as Romans, From First to Last, and Our Last Night.
