Against the backdrop of Asbury Park, NJ rock and punk history comes Beach Rats. With a membership that includes four impossible-to-avoid New Jersey punk stalwarts including Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, Bad Religion), Ari Katz (Lifetime), Bryan Kienlen and Pete Steinkopf (The Bouncing Souls) and rounded out by Danny Windas, akd "Dubs" on drums. Beach Rats play a brand of hardcore/punk that stays true to their members' roots while creating something completely fresh and urgent.

"It's a mix of the Jersey Shore thing and a bunch of guys that can endlessly create 80s hardcore riffs because we were there", states Bryan Kienlan. "You're gonna get authentic punk and hardcore from Beach Rats because we are all from the 80s. It's literally taking it back to some of our biggest influences like Negative Approach and Poison Idea, And of course, Minor Threat".
