Boldly resisting authority…like the definition of its name, Curtain Call Records recording artist Defiant has set out to ignore any rules or standards in hard rock music. The 4-piece band from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania infuses elements of punk, alternative, classic rock and heavy metal to form its own unique brand of music. Formed in 2018, Defiant has built a reputation with their high octane live shows playing on bills throughout the United States with the likes of From Ashes to New, The Texas Hippie Coalition, Kix, L.A. Guns, Quiet Riot, Buckcherry, Puddle of Mudd, Tantric and Otep among others. The band is comprised of Albert Halterman (vocals and guitar), Joe Defiant (guitar) Paul Barlowski (bass) and Paul Cochran (drums). Defiant is set to release their third EP in 2024 via Curtain Call Records.
The group's last three singles have charted in the Top 40 on the Secondary Rock Market (SMR) Charts.
