Hard Rock/Metal band from the High Desert of Southern California!
.223 is a Hard Rock/Metal band out of Quartz Hill, CA. We are a team of musicians that somehow found each other in this small town and made great use of the chemistry between us. It all started when guitarist Jay was searching for bandmates for another band he was in, at the time. The bassist, drummer, and vocalist that auditioned suggested that the initial meeting should kick off as a new project on the spot. Thus, .223 was born in the spring of 2013. It took a while, and quite a few lineup changes, but we managed to cement ourselves within the first year of being a band. We've already performed a handful of shows, to include a showcase at the legendary House of Blues - Sunset Strip in Hollywood, CA. Our first single "Rage" was written primarily for an indie circuit wrestler named David Rage to use as his new entrance theme as he walks from backstage to the ring. We are looking forward to booking more performance opportunities in the near future, as well as making ourselves known.
