Eleven Well-Known Bands You Didn’t Know Recorded in Fort Collins
1760 Laporte Avenue in Fort Collins is home to the humble Blasting Room Studios; hidden behind a used furniture store and a laundromat as you hit the northwest outskirts of town, it's an iconic stop for big names in the punk rock scene (founded by members of Black Flag and the Descendents).
While it's been no secret that the band Rise Against frequents the place (according to the Blasting Room's website, the band's had nine stints there since 2001), here are some other well-known bands you may not have realized are listed as clients for Northern Colorado's own Blasting Room.
The 'Calling All Skeletons' band recorded My Shame Is True (2013) with the Blasting Room.
My Tsyganiada (2011)
What the H-E-double hockey sticks the fudge? Scary Kids Scaring Kids recorded at the Blasting Room, too? Who knew? Back in 2005, that is where the band recorded After Dark.
Tony Sly Tribute (2013), Complete Control Sessions (2011), and Terror State (2003)
Borders and Boundaries (2000) and See the Light (2013)
I really only know these guys as the band that covered 'Mrs. Robinson,' but they recorded two Blasting Room albums in 2006, Lemonheads and Become the Enemy.
Self/Entitled (2012), Longest EP (2010), Coaster (2009), Cokie the Clown (2009), Wolves in Wolves' Clothing (2006), and Never Trust a Hippy (2006)
The band recorded Icon in 2010, Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love and Hate in 2009 and Famous in 2007.
