The bands fictional back story is:
For millions of years, the mythical galactic monsters of GWAR lay frozen in an iceberg in Antarctica. But in the 1980, glam rock was at its peak, groups like Poison and Whitesnake were dominating the airwaves. They inspired a whole slew of new "hair spray" bands. But little did they know, all of that hair spray put a hole in the ozone - right above Antarctica! Soon the unfiltered gamma rays melted the iceberg and GWAR was free.

Meanwhile, manager Sleazy P. Martini was fleeing the country on drug charges, flying over the former tomb of GWAR. He picked them up and brought them back to America. He taught them how to use instruments and they learned the language from watching midget wrestling and MTV. Soon GWAR was known as the greatest band in the Universe...

U.S. Bastards
U.S. BASTARDS started originally as U.S. Brass, a rock and roll trio in the summer of 2007 consisting of Brent Purgason, Peter Simms and Josh Price. John Kelly was quickly added as a second guitar player to complete the wall of sound. The band would play their first show in November 2007 at the Richmond Tattoo Convention hosted by the late Billy Eason. The material performed would end up making the first album, most of which was written in 2005 after Purgason left Richmond rock band, The Deviltones in pursuit of a different sound.
A few friends have come and gone as players in the band and in 2010 the U.S. BRASS HAS NO CLASS EP was released in limited numbers with Brian Porter on drums and Zack O'Carroll (Antietam 1862, Humungus) on bass guitar.
Fast forward to 2012 Jeremy Dutra came aboard on drums and the band returned to being a three piece with Kelly moving from guitar to bass. That same year Purgason assumed lead guitar duties in the legendary band of intergalactic scumdogs known as GWAR.
As of 2014 the band started working on their second full length and the sound had evolved quite a bit since the beginning. U.S. BRASS became U.S. BASTARDS, playing music that's faster, harder and darker than before.
