Made Violent formed in the capital city of wasted days – Buffalo, New York – when longtime friends and collaborators Joseph White, Justin Acee, and Rob Romano reunited after several months apart.

The inseparable trio’s first order of business was an escape from the gloom and doom of their hometown. “We went to a cabin for a week to write the kind of music we always wanted to.” The product of seven days of malt liquor breakfasts and far less frequent showers was “Wasted Days,” an ode to reckless youth.

As 2013 came to a close, they found it impossible to remove themselves from their cold practice space in a dismal part of town. “It just hit,” says 20 year old White, faded but fresh-faced. “Writing became a part of my daily routine as much as anything else.”
