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". In early 2017, the group partnered up with local record company NO PROFIT RECORDS and released a 7in vinyl single "Hit The Gas"; marking the band's first time on vinyl.
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!
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.
The band also had the pleasure of having PJ Soles reprise her role as Riff Randall of "Rock n Roll Highschool" for the intro to the song "Save The Rock"!
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.
"Perhaps the best way to describe The Fill Ins and their sound is simply, high energy rock n roll. They blend sharp riffs with fast pacing, slick guitar solos, and more than a little punk attitude. Essentially, The Fill Ins remind me of a 21st century Ramones, only heavier and faster, and with better guitar solos." - Craig Hartranft; Dangerdog Music Reviews
