Defiance, Ohio Biography
Defiance, Ohio is an anticapitalist, largely acoustic punk (typically referred to as folk-punk) band from Bloomington, Indiana. They are known for their extensive touring and intense, enthusiastic live shows. They are named after the real town Defiance, Ohio. The band features a violin, cello, and double bass. The band is also known for being involved with fellow DIY minded record label Plan-It-X Records, often touring with many bands on Plan-It-X Records and participating in multiple Plan-It-X Fests.
They have released two full length LPs, Share What Ya Got and The Great Depression, as well as a handful of split recordings. In the DIY spirit, much of their music is put out by the band themselves, producing their own CDs and CD-Rs, as well as allowing anyone to download all of their music for free from their website under a Creative Commons Attribute-NonCommerical-ShareAlike license . When not releasing their own music, the band works with independent record labels in order to produce their releases. Typically these have been smaller independent labels. However, the band's second and most recent full-length, The Great Depression, was released on the more notable though still staunchly independent No Idea Records.
No Idea is the largest label Defiance, Ohio has ever worked with. After making the decisions to work with No Idea, the band felt a need to explain their actions and maintain the sense of dialog that they feel has been consistent in how they've operated themselves as a band. They said that they would have preferred to release the album themselves, but that they did not have the capacity to do so while continuing to keep older releases in print.
Some members from Defiance, Ohio also participate in another pop-punk band, Pretty Hot.
