Bio: Or the Children's Crusade is a group of 6 friends that have played in loosely related bands with one another over the past 10 years. Some did extensive touring while others ended in high school. To this day, there are several other side projects that contain 1 or members of OtCC (such as Ugly Houses, Scripted Failures, and Gloom & Doom just to name a few). OtCC has created a unique recording collective that is a bit incestuous because each member enjoys the others' music and wants to be a part of it however possible.

 

With six different members come six different sets of influences. This causes OtCC to not really be able to pinned to a genre, as cliche' as that is these days. If you sit and listen you can pick out influences without being able to say it sounds like a particular artist. OtCC is an anthemic indie rock and roll band that draws from bands like Explosions in the Sky to Black Flag to Elvis Costello and so much more.

 

OtCC is currently recording a full length record in their home studio and plan to release it late winter/early spring.
