Split The D are a 5-piece Pop/Punk band formed in Spring of 2012 with members hailing from locations scattered throughout the Pittsburgh, PA area. They are a pop-punk band, who set out to bring rock and roll back to basics, going for a direct and energetic sound.

Like all great pop-punk bands, Split The D’s formula is simple enough; equal parts humor, angst and rebellion combined with infectious guitar hooks that just beg for the stereo to be cranked up. On the latest single (and especially on the video) “Legacies”, where the band pays homage to “anyone who has passed away too young”, they have connected their music with something emotional. And it rocks.

The song starts like an electric charge suspended in limbo, then explodes into a blisteringly hard rhythm, showcasing some awesome pure rock riffs. The drumming on “Legacies” is also noteworthy. Kevin’s beat is always steady as a rock, with perfect fills and little touches that increase the song’s effectiveness tenfold.

Originally a mathematics term for dividing the difference, Split The D is considered to be a sports term for breaking through the defensive line. And that’s exactly what members Joey Bones – Vocals, Jason Guitar/Vocals, Steve – Guitar, Casey – Bass/Vocals, and Kevin – Drums are attempting to do, as they launch their musical attack with “Legacies”.

If this is an indication of the direction Split The D is going to be taking. Emotional, powerful, and at the same time maintaining their fun side, they may just hit the musical jackpot, finding a sound clearly recognizable as their own.
