WHO ARE WE?
The Fill Ins are Charlotte NC’s premiere high-octane Rock n Roll band; sporting catchy guitar riffs and an unapologetic attitude. Conceived in the summer of 2010 and officially debuting in 2013; The Fill Ins have strived to become the high octane rock n roll machine that you see today.
From 2013 til 2016, the band stuck close to home fine tuning their live show and releasing 2 full length albums; "Hipster Killers" and "5th Time's The Charm"; spawning the singles "Save The Rock" and "Spit In My Face". The band also had the pleasure of having PJ Soles reprise her role as Riff Randall from "Rock n Roll Highschool" for the intro to the track "Save The Rock"!
In early 2017 and after getting new drummer Adam Patterson behind the kit, the group partnered up with local record company NO PROFIT RECORDS and released a split 7in vinyl single "Hit The Gas"; not only marking the band's first time on vinyl, but also a sonic shift from their classic punk roots, to fully embracing the power of Rock n Roll!
Their new album "THE TIME IS NOW" released in June 2017 to wide praise by fans and critics alike, keeping in the same tradition of making the best high-octane rock n roll music possible! Recorded at Fithman Studios in only a few days, THE TIME IS NOW marks new territory for the band and are very optimistic for the future!
The band has had the honor of opening for legendary acts like Richie Ramone, The Dwarves, The Reverend Horton Heat, Koffin Kats, GBH, Total Chaos, Joe Buckyourself, ANTiSEEN, WhiskeyDick, Cold Blue Rebels, and Wednesday 13; to name a few.
The Fill Ins have been featured as the main act for wrestling shows, local festivals (including; Punk Rock Picnic and Heroin Kills), and headlined Tremont Music Hall's 20th Anniversary Show.
Today; the band consists of Alex Stiff on vocals and guitar, Mikey Black on lead guitar, James "Captain" Nunn on bass, and Adam Patterson on drums.
