Carbon Jacket's Story

Carbon Jacket was born in 2015 at a high school in Corpus Christi, Texas. Originally there was a much more awkward and less successful previous musical venture that the guitarist, Julian Janssen, the bassist, Luke Montalvo, and the singer, Antonio Aguas, had engaged in. A name change and the addition of drummer Thomas Cruz breathed new life into the band as they rocked through a variety of garages, historic old houses, bedrooms, and gymnasiums across the Coastal Bend. The band's blend of fast paced punk and melodic alternative rock helped engage audiences around the coastal bend, leading to their debut album "Carbon Jacket", led by the single "So Fast." Though the band regularly goes on hiatus due to the realities of college life, Carbon Jacket followed up their first album with a second, "Whale", a concept album about growing up and moving on, led by the singles "Who I Want" and "South Dakota". The band is currently hard at work on their third release, due sometime in 2017.
