Castoff is a San Diego based melodic skatepunk band consisting of founding member Bill Hockmuth on Vocals/Guitar, and new members Ron Santiago on Guitar, Brandon Lounsbury on Bass/Vocals, and Josh Kidd on Drums. After releasing a few DIY efforts “The Dividing Line” and “Acquisition” and sharing the stage with Guttermouth, Implants, GFP, Counterpunch, After the Fall and others, they spent a few months practicing and writing material and went into Doubletime studios to work with Jeff Forrest (Blink 182, Rocket From the Crypt, As I Lay Dying) to track and mix their first effort with the new lineup. The result is “Lines and Passages” , which was mastered by Jason Livermore at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Influenced by melodic punk stalwarts Bad Religion, Pennywise, Strung Out, and Propagandhi, “Lines and Passages” blends vocal harmonies, fast guitar riffing with technical flourishes, and a furious rhythm section. They incorporate thought provoking lyrics around societal issues and the ups and downs of human existence.

Driven by a persistent work ethic and common goal of progressing musically and playing as many shows as possible, Castoff is ready to become a mainstay in the underground melodic skatepunk scene.
