Under a cloud of 90’s punk rock revival, The Preps formed in 1996 and hail from grand, old West Chester, PA. The group is composed of friends who have been playing music togther for over 10 years. The two brothers, Eric and Bryan Schwenk, harbor most of the talent in the band through years of musical lessons and dedicated practicing. However, both Fred and Breslin bring extremely unique talents to the band and help shape their creative pop-punk sound. Their sound is most derivative of the second wave of punk inspired by the West Coast sound coming from Epitaph and Fat Wreck Chords as well as Vagrant. Their fast beats, harmonizing vocals and shredding solos create a tight sound that feels and sounds familiar, but you can’t quite put your finger on it.
