URIZEN is a whole hell-of-a-lot of fun packed onto a stage full of monsters, metal, robots, mad science, and a group of dudes rocking their hearts out in the name of entertainment!
For years, URIZEN has been storming stages in their native Texas and beyond with a unique blend of symphonic-tinged, video game-inspired hard rock. Armed with an intricate and massively entertaining live show, the band has embarked on US and European tours with rad talents like MACHINAE SUPREMACY, PSYCHOSTICK, THE PROTOMEN, MEGA RAN, DR. AWKWARD, and many more. URIZEN is also a friend to the convention and festival circuit, with main stage appearances at MAGFEST, NERDAPALOOZA, DRAGON*CON, and SOUTH BY SO WHAT?!? Holy moly!
The band was formed by brothers Thomas and Daniel Drinnen (guitar/vocals and keyboards, respectively), and was joined by bassist Rustin Luther in 2012 and drummer Nolan McCormick in 2015. URIZEN has released three albums: autocratopolis (2005), Universe EP (2007), and Universe:Red (2010); and one remix album, 8-Bit Universe (2011), with a brand-new full-length LP in the works.
In 2017, after an intense year-long battle with a rare brain tumor, Rustin Luther passed away at the age of 31. The band continues on in tribute to his loud, beautiful spirit. In May 2018, longtime friend of the band Geoff Colvin was added on bass.
