Bishop formed in 2004 as the sum expression of friends from various bands hanging out and writing together. What formed is an honest, frustrated and impassioned straight-edge hardcore band, one of the last of a dying breed. Bishop's debut album 'Suicide Party' will rage it's way to life Jan 10th of 2006. Focused more on social politics and the message than on fame, Bishop embrace their hardcore roots and hope to breath life into a subculture that might soon forget where is came from - Music not just for music's sake, but music with a meaning and a message and a purpose. With a sound reminiscent of Terror, Hatebreed and Straight Edge Hardcore before them (Side by Side, Alone In A Crowd) Bishop's 'Suicide Party' , recorded at Eulogy Records studio - Southern Noise Studios, by Jonathan Nunez, cuts straight to the point - 14 tracks of frantic hardcore start to finish.
In the words of the band - "xBISHOPx was formed for sheer fun and for the love of hardcore, crucial head walks, stage dives, sing alongs, you know the drill. pretty pissed, but not brutal. get fucked."
