MXPX

MxPx is a Christian punk rock band that  formed in Bremerton, Washington, in 1992. The band has recorded eight studio albums, four EPs, four compilation albums, a live album, a VHS tape, a DVD and released 20 singles.

All the members of the band are Christians, and this is reflected in some of the bands songs. However, they prefer not to be called a Christian band.  On the topic of their faith Mike Herrera was quoted saying “We are Christian. It’s not a cult or something. It’s part of our story and I guess it’s different and controversial. But it’s a personal thing. It’s what we choose to believe. That’s all there is to it. We don’t preach to anyone.” .

The band’s current lineup includes Mike Herrera on bass and vocals, Tom Wisniewski on guitar, and Yuri Ruley on drums. The band has only had one major lineup change, early in their career, when founding guitarist Andy Husted left the band after the release of their first record and was replaced by Wisniewski.
