Total Abuse are from Austin, Texas. Since their first show in November 2006 Total Abuse have been recording and playing a heavy onslaught of feedback drenched experimental hardcore soundscapes, taking hints from the Dead C, Black Flag (Chavo and Rollins era), Void and Harry Pussy.
The band’s roster includes; Rusty Kelley on vocals (who also makes harsh noise under the name Breathing Problem), Matt Lyons on drums, Ryan Foster on guitar, Dustin Pilkington on bass and Duncan Knappen as second guitar. Members now live in Austin, TX after spending time on all three coasts. Total Abuse have reunited in the city they started and are in the process of writing a 12 song LP for Deranged.
