  • Unrestrained: St. Petersburg, Russia


    Here’s a good 12 minute video our friend Derek shared with us. Derek plays guitar in the band Unrestrained, a local hardcore powerhouse from here in Burlington, VT. These guys are more traveled than you and Miley Cyrus combined…and do it on their own dime. Crank the speakers for this one.


  • It’ll be good.

  • Everyone, our friend Derek’s band Unrestrained is kicking off their BICYCLE TOUR tonight, here in Burlington VT. GET YOUR ASS TO THIS SHOW. Here’s an article from Seven Days Vermont about the band and their pedal-powered tour kicking off tonight.

    For most bands, touring is a way to build a following, to move T-shirts and sell CDs. It is a way to get your name out there, boost your MySpace hits and maybe, just maybe, to get signed. But for Burlington’s Unrestrained, touring is not merely the means to an end. Touring is the end.

    Since forming in 2006, the hardcore punk band has toured the United States several times over. And in the last 18 months, they have gone global, playing 26 countries on two continents — or roughly 25 more countries than the majority of local acts who are not named Grace Potter or Phish. That number will get a bump when the band tours Europe for two months this summer, marking their third trip across the pond in two years.

    “Everyone in the band puts touring and writing music ahead of everything else,” explains guitarist Derek McIntire…”
