Ampere



Ampere is a DIY hardcore punk band based in Amherst, Massachusetts known for their short (10-15 minutes) but extremely loud and intense live shows. They are recognized as one of the best forerunners of the hardcore subgenre “screamo,” well before its misinterpreted and bastardized commercialization in the early 21st Century. The band has put the importance of DIY punk ethics at the forefront of their lyrics and are renowned for the particular attention they bring to their vegan principles.
The members of the bands have been involved in the DIY hardcore scene for a number of years with the most notable being guitarist Will Killingsworth, who played guitar in Orchid, Laceration and Bucket Full of Teeth and who continues to run his Clean Plate record label and Dead Air recording studio where the band records all of their music. Drummer Andy Skelly played drums in both The Last 40 Seconds and Wolves, Stephen’s previous bands were montcalm and The Last 40 Seconds; he currently also plays guitar in Aerosols and briefly ran Distort, an independent record store in Northampton, Massachusetts (May ‘06 - December ‘06). Meghan played bass in Stop the Clock and Unicoroner and now sings in Relics.
Much like Orchid, Ampere (especially earlier albums such as “All Our Tomorrows End Today”) often borrow some of their intense lyrics from philosophers and revolutionaries such as Guy Debord.
