Shatterproof is a unique medley of sounds mainly under the umbrella of alternative rock. Shatterproof has influences from classical, metal, blues, acoustic and other genres as well.

Each band member has been greatly influenced by different groups in very different genres. One universal inspiration to Shatterproof is local band, Tickle Me Pink. There are also countless others such as The Used, Sleeping with Sirens and I the Mighty.

Our favorite thing about Northern Colorado is all of the opportunities for musicians to display their craft. Not only through venues but the multitude of events in Fort Collins such as FOCOMX, NewWestFest, and Streetmosphere. Not only does it give us an opportunity to play, but also a chance to see other bands perform which makes us much better.

Check out Shatterproof online (You can also buy their music on iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon) and come out and cheer 'em on this Sunday at The Jam, crowd reaction will be part of the judging!
