In early 1999, returning cans and bottles became more than a gift to the environment and a way to get your change back. It put a name on a newly-formed three piece Power Pop-Punk band fresh from Long Island.
Struggling to make ends meet for funding rehearsal time, the band turned in used cans and bottles in exchange
for a name which couldn't be more well suited - "5¢ Deposit"
Founding members, John L. (guitar/vocals), Lieber (drums), and Chris King (bass/vocals)
creat their unique, Power Pop-Punk sound, exuding the vigorous energy and raw talent which makes "5¢ Deposit"
stand above the crowd.
Influences ranging from 50's/60's rock 'n' roll to such bands as NOFX, Green Day, Face To Face and Mxpx.
"5¢ Deposit" has developed a flavor all their own, establishing recognition by playing countless shows across the
US and abroad (to such places as Germany, Italy, Austria, Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Belgium), placement on mass amounts of compilation CD's, radio airplay across the country and beyond,
appearances on the Warped Tour, reviews in Entertainment Weekly, and songs featured in movies and on such T.V. shows as
CBS' "The District".
Staying true to their musical roots and not changing with the fads or latest musical trends that seem to be momentarily popular, "5¢ Deposit" is a band devoted to what they do, with fans devoted to what they create. "5¢ Deposit" is sure to make a
lasting impression on the music scene.
"5¢ Deposit" have played with, appeared on compilations, movie soundtracks, and/or appeared on action-sport video soundtracks with the following bands:
Bigwig, Dynamite Boy, Home Grown, Pennywise, Strung Out, Catch 22, New Found Glory, The Ataris, A Wilhelm Scream, Don't Look Down, Fenix TX, Finch, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Sugalcult, Yellowcard, Matchbook Romance, Midtown, Limp, Showoff, Less Than Jake, Rufio, Fallout Boy, Hoobustank, blah blah blah
