The Industry is a Proto Punk band from San Diego, California formed by vocalist and guitarist Chris Chacon, bassist and vocalist Anthony Minsky, and drummer Steven Arnett. They went into the studio in late 2017 to record new material after a series of smaller music projects had disbanded.
The Industry’s debut EP ‘I Gave You Everything’ was released on May 12th 2018, and features five songs inspired by the sounds of other melodic punk bands such as Rise Against and Citizen. The title ‘I Gave You Everything’ is an allude to everything the band had to leave behind to get to this point. The five tracks talk about personal issues from anxieties to aspirations, and many stories from the lives of the members of the Industry can be found woven into the lyrics.
The Industry are currently playing shows around Southern California, and recording new music with Clarity Recordings.
