Castor Hetfield is joined by Jake Dallas on vocals/bass and Ethan Sirotzki on guitar. The band from Savannah, Georgia formed in 2019.
In a 2021 interview with The Hum, the trio said:
“We are BASTARDANE and we are not some average chump white male band looking to get laid. There is a time in every generation when music is the guiding light out of hard times. We just want to make emotionally empowering music that isn’t trying to cater to a certain audience. Our career is about making people happy and fulfilling the emotional needs of those who can’t tolerate words alone.”
“Is This Rage?” track listing:
01) Above All
02) Praise No Bliss
06) Let The Wasted Die
08) The Cavalier
09) Ad Infinitum
