Indofin, together since 2002, is a skapunkreggae powertrio from Austin TX. From these very modest beginnings and years spent at what seemed like futile efforts, Indofin has certainly come a long way, becoming one of the defining bands of the central Texas scene. They managed to play showcases during SXSW from 2003-2008 and 2010, and even earned a spot on TX dates of Vans Warped Tour Kevin Says Stage in 2007. Since the release of their selftitled debut album in the spring of 2005, the band has played over 350 shows in over 50 US cities across 25 states, as well as doing extensive regional touring around their homestate TX. Indofin has always maintained a strong DIY work ethic, booking five of their own tours, and they have never had a label, an agent, or manager. They have been fortunate enough to share the stage with many of the nation's touring acts including Voodoo GlowSkulls, Badfish Sublime Tribute, The Expendables, Outlaw Nation, The Stingers, The Supervillains, and many more. Despite playing with bands of every imaginable category, the band continues to stick out like a sore thumb in the central TX live music scene, refusing to confine their music to the boundaries of any particular genre. Stripped down now to 3 of the 5 original members, the band is taking their sound in a fresh new direction for the next record, but fans will still be able to experience the raw energy and intensity that Indofin puts into every live performance. Most recently, the band was included on the Revival Stage of the Wakarusa Camping and Music Festival in 2010, sharing the stage with such well- renowned acts as Fishbone, Rebelution, SlightlyStoopid, and Dweezil Zappa.
Currently, this eclectic group of misunderstood punker sluts has been making preparations to release their second full length album "2 x Broken", which they plan to put out independently July 2010. In the last few years, the band has endured numerous obstacles(carjackings, stolen equipment, drug & alcohol addiction etc.) and they often learned the hard way many of the cruel realities of the music industry, yet their uncompromising dedication to their craft remains stronger than ever. But rest assured, Indofin has no intention of disappearing or leaving, so be sure to check out a show if you get the chance; you won't regret it and it might even change your life.
