Bristol To Memory is an American rock band based in Southern California. Combining elements of alternative rock, emo rock, pop, and punk, Bristol To Memory’s sound is influenced by bands such as Brand New and Saves The Day. First formed in 2005, their name originates from the cross streets in Santa Ana where front man Rory O’Connell, brother/bassist, Kealan O’Connell and their childhood friend, drummer, Alex Buster, grew up. Rounded out by Daniel Wonacott (former guitarist for Finch) Bristol To Memory is now stronger than ever. Their musical compositions and collaboration evoke a feeling of nostalgic excitement with their dynamic guitar progression, thrilling choruses, and poetic lyrics.
Touring the Western United States, Canada and most recently the Midwest and Eastern United States, Bristol To Memory has performed on noteworthy stages such as the Van’s Warped Tour, SXSW Music Festival, House Of Blues, The Roxy, and The Whiskey. Bristol To Memory’s music has already been licensed for several national television networks such as MTV, The Oxygen Channel, and Fox Sports West with the Los Angeles Angels Baseball Club. Receiving the award for best punk band from OC Weekly in both 2014 and 2015, Bristol To Memory has gained a reputation of one of the foremost up and coming bands in Southern California. With five solid EPs of material already under their belt, Bristol To Memory recently wrapped production on their first full-length album produced by their own lead guitarist Daniel Wonacott. The album is scheduled for release later in 2018.
