From their beginning in early 2005, it seemed clear that Bracewar were going to make waves. Formed after the break up of Richmond heavy hitters Murder Weapon, by vocalist Ryan "Braces" Wall, this Richmond, VA based outfit set out to create energetic hardcore that is both catchy and abrasive, succeeding on both accounts. Joined by Dan Horres on bass, Alex Mayo and Hunter Jennings on guitars, and later by another former member of Murder Weapon drummer Rashod Jackson, Wall and Bracewar fuse the punk fervor of Infest and Antidote with classic NYHC sounds ala Cro-Mags and Warzone. This infectious style has helped the band win over fans all along the East Coast and beyond.

Following a successful Spring Break 2006 tour alongside fellow Richmonders Down to Nothing and the release of their debut 7" EP on Brain Grenade Records, Bracewar had created enough of a stir to attract the attention of California-based 1917 Records. Within a few short weeks, the band signed with the label and began planning for the future. Summer 2006 will see Bracewar touring extensively across the U.S., including an appearance at Sound & Fury Fest in Ventura , CA. The band will also be writing for their 1917 debut.
