Formed in 2001, playing a powerful blend of southwestern roots based Americana, Punk Rock and Psychobilly, Albuquerque New Mexico's 12 Step Rebels quickly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the US psychobilly scene. Shortly after their first release titled Mutilated Melodies, the trio found themselves on their first US tour supporting German psychobilly legends, Mad Sin. Shortly thereafter, 12 Step Rebels recorded their second release, Go Go Graveyard Rockin' with 12 Step Rebels", produced by Geoff Kresge (AFI, Tiger Army, Viva Hate, Horror Pops, FEAR), with a track featured on Hellcat Records "Give 'em the boot 4" compilation and released on Dead Body Wreckerds. The album saw a frenzy of sales boosting the band back onto the road, again touring nationally in support of Tiger Army's "Dark Romance" tour and shortly after that, Hellcat Records "Punks vs Psychos" tour, featuring 12 Step Rebels alongside Tiger Army, The Business, Roger Miret and the Disasters, and the Street Dogs. Continued full time touring saw the trio share stages across the United States with many of punk rock and psychobilly's most iconic acts until the band announced a hiatus from life on the road. Over the next several years the band saw a couple short lived lineup changes, releasing the "From our hands to yours" split album with Koffin Kats, featuring Pat Kappauf on drums, the "Play with the Dead" anthology record, and the "Love/Death" 45 with Greg Dupy on bass. With the 2020 return of bassist Nate Hancock, the band is now back together with the original lineup that made 12 Step Rebels the iconic powerhouse that it is today, playing harder than ever with resumed touring and new albums currently in the works. If you're new to the 12 Step Rebels family, welcome! If you're one of the many, many friends who have been coming out to the shows, sharing stories and connections to the band and the music, your continued support and friendship is deeply meaningful and appreciated. You all are the reason for all of this. Thank you.
