Ten Pound Strike is a four-piece alternative/indie band based in New York City that just released its sophomore 7-song EP in November 2005. The band plays a hard-hitting hybrid of rock music with strains of punk and blues. With a raw, immediate delivery and stripped-down production, the music draws comparisons to Audioslave, early Nirvana, Pixies, Iggy Pop, and Queens of the Stone Age.
Live, Ten Pound Strike is explosive and unpredictable. The scowling vocals, gutsy guitars, and overall bravado earned top nods at this year's MEANY Fest and opportunities to play with national acts Clutch, Monster Magnet, and Josh Todd. Having built a solid and loyal fan base, TPS performs extensively in New York and throughout the Northeast.
