Hiding Inside Victims is a Crust/Hardcore Punk band from the Los Angeles/Ventura County California area. The band began late 2008 with home recordings and jam sessions with Joaquin (vocals/drums) and Joe (vocals/guitar). Both previously had been singers in separate disbanded street punk bands, Initial Distrust and U.S.Brats, and were looking to expand their musical expertise. In 2009 after perfecting their sound the band played their first show at the Infest Warehouse in Los Angeles. After a series of shows in the Southern California area the band decided to look for a bassist and took Mike (BlisterUnit/Want but Mari) vocalist and guitarist for the spot. After set of shows Mike had a mutual parting from the band for his other career and musical endeavors. The band began again to search for another bassist and this time a second guitarist and found guitarist Chris (Schismism, The Last Priority) and bassist Ryan "Ratboy" (Throat Cancer). Founding member Joe left the band in 2011 and the band is now a three-piece. They have shared the stage with such bands as Against//Empire, Appalacian Terror Unit, Wartorn, Order of the Vulture, Iskra, Thousands Will Die, Temple of Dagon, The Last Priority, Blasting Concept, The Fucking Wrath, Stop Breathing, Hellbastard and many more. The band completed their first Western U.S. tour with Dutch punk band Suicide State in May 2011 coinciding with a split release by the two bands which was released in the U.S. and Europe. In the works is yet another west coast tour in May 2013.
