“I’m not gonna play your endless games of dark and angry words that always seem to flame” (Punching Bag - Andrew and Stephanie Hooker)
The Uneven aspires to bridge the fuzz and sludge of 70s hard rock with the guttural ferocity of 90s alternative metal, while never forgetting the primal roots of the blues. The Uneven is influenced by iconic groups like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, and Nine Inch Nails. While many hard rock and metal bands focus on the doom and gloom, The Uneven's message is to fight for truth, to self-empower, and to overcome adversity.
Guitarist and lead vocalist, Andrew Hooker, describes the debut single, Punching Bag as “A fire-raging riff and groove, that screams like a wild beast trying to escape a cage. The message of the song is about reaching a breaking point, and deciding to finally rage against opposition, while embracing your own power to set boundaries. It’s a reminder that finding beauty in imperfection is what gives us the will to take another step.”
