Hometown: Detroit, MI (USA)


HiFi Handgrenades is a 4–piece melodic punk band, from Detroit, Michigan. The band was formed in late December ‚??06, following the demise of power–pop trio The Fags, who released an EP and critically acclaimed full–length ‚??Light ‚??Em Up‚?? on Texas indie Idol records. Singer/ guitarist/songwriter John Speck (Hoarse, Skeemin‚??NoGoods, The Paybacks, The Fags...) wanted to form a new band that recalled his years coming up in the city‚??s storied punk scene.

An honest, no–frills band echoing the melodic sound of the Descendents and Dagnasty, combined with the attitude of mid–western greats such as ‚??Stink‚?? –era Replacements and Naked Raygun. Joining him are the formidable rhythm section formerly of the Suicide Machines: drummer Ryan Vandeberghe and bassist Rich Tschirhart, along with Grande Nationals guitarist/ singer Tony Vegas.
