Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Speedloader quickly made its way into the rock scene in early 2001. The band immediately released and EP on Brooklyn based indie label Handi-Kraft Records, whose roster includes JJ Paradise Players Club and The Candy Darlings. From there Speedloader unleased its heavy-noise rock act all over New York City.
In March of 2002, the band was featured on the infamous "Escape From New York Tour" with rock veterans JJ Paradise Players Club and The Brought Low which took the band all over the mid-west and east coast to Austin, Texas during SXSW.
After moving the band to Austin in late 2002 and releasing a split 7" with purveyors of mayhem the Bulemics, it became apparent that they were going to make things happen regardless of location, performing in and around Texas with the likes of Honky, Dixie Witch, ATP, Keelhaul and many others.
"Steady Hookin'" marks the bands latest full length effort and shows the brute force this band has become famous for. They slay you with riffs that tear and remind you of something being brutally destroyed.
