Have Nots Bio:

Formed out of the ashes of Stray Bullets and Chicago Typewriter, Have Nots are one of the hardest working bands in punk rock today. Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut “Serf City USA”, a rigorous touring schedule has seen them perform 150 shows in 2009 alone, sharing the stage with legends like The Dropkick Murphys and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones in the process and drawing sell out crowds in their hometown of Boston, MA.

Each Have Nots song is an open letter of indignation to the world. The subjects range broadly from the plights of the true Have Nots in our society (migrant workers, disabled veterans, prisoners held with neither charge nor evidence, can collectors scraping by off 5 cent deposits) to examinations of interpersonal relations. You know, love songs. It’s as much a part of life as hardship, and somehow, the two often go hand in hand.

While the dual singer/guitarists may sound like they want to jam a stick of dynamite down your throat (they do), Jon Cauztik and Matt Pruitt also want you to listen, and think, about what goes on in the world around you. The rhythm section of Jameson Hollis on bass and Steve Patton on the drums is really just there to make you dance to their solid ragga punk foundation...and dance you will.

    Saw these dudes play in nashville. I bought their cd. Probably the most solid cd i bought of a touring band. Every track was a hit and i couldnt stop listening to it. Great band.
