The Fastplants are a Chicago area skatepunk band newly added to the Beer City Skateboards & Records roster.
The band started in 2013 and after a couple lineup changes and two self-released e.p.’s and steady gigging around the Midwest, has solidified with the addition of Abe (guitar) and Joel (bass) to original members Matt (guitar) and Marc (drums). This lineup gigged and toured heavily in 2016 and recorded a split l.p. with Scottish skatepunk band Daniel Wax Off, that came out in the spring of 2017.
A full length ‘Spread the Stoke’ was recorded and released for the summer of 2017. In support of the new full length the band toured the western U.S. in July and played the Midwest, South, and Eastern U.S. throughout 2017.
2018 has The Fastplants playing multiple dates through spring including a long weekend out to NY and back. A 3 day/city Shred , Rock and Camp tour with fellow Chicago band Shots Fired. Were they skate the park in the city all day and then play a show at night followed by camping out. As well as many other shows and tours for 2018.
The Fastplants have no plans on slowing down and looks forward to every show, big and small.
