Wow....its been awhile....
Yes...Put Her In The Trunk has broken up....April of 2012.
It was a great run. Lots of great shows with great bands,movie soundtracks,sold tons of merch, recorded and sold out of all our cd's,and we had a blast. Thank YOU for coming along with us on the ride.
The guys have a few new projects going that you should check out.

and Doug is playing drums with his former Floating Face Down/Play Dead bandmates in Ratbatspider.
Show them some support...go to their shows...and who knows....PHITT may rise again one day.
September 2011
 Things have been quiet lately, part of that is because our drummer's (who does this site) computer died.
He has it running somewhat now...lol...
We have been writing some new songs, and we are planning to record an e.p. in the very near future. Hopefully in January 2012...
We have a few shows coming up, check the shows page for details.
 
June 2011
 
The cd release show was a success.
Thanks to all of you that showed up, bought a cd,
and rocked out with us.
Living Dred and 215 threw down killer sets.
If you missed it, you missed one hell of a show.
So now the cd is out. You can order it in our webstore,
and you can download the digital version HERE.
The cd comes with a bonus track NOT available on the digital download version,
it also ships with a signed poster.
We are working on getting the cd's into some store chains,
as well as ITUNES and Amazon.com. We'll keep everyone posted on that.
Next show is July 22 at The Monkey Bar with Carnal Befoulment,

February 2011 

  We have just finished our new cd with producer Eric LaBrosse of Cherry Pit Studios. We had a great experience recording with him, in his awesome studio. We feel we've finally recorded the energy of the band, in the way it should be heard. We are psyched to have  Rich Cseri from Waukesha Tattoo Company to do our cover. Soon we will have more info on when the cd will be available. There will be cd release shows (all ages, and drinking) booked soon.  For now we have a new song "Compression" available for streaming. Guest vocals by our good friend Nate Forcey (The Sky and the Execution/White Knuckle Trip). Let us know what you think, and please help spread the word.

 
Band email marketing Quantcast
 
 

Things are coming along great with the recording of our cd.  Eric LaBrosse and Cherry Pit Studios are the best! We can't wait to get it out to you all.  Below is a teaser to give you an idea of how good the recording is this time. 
 
 
 
 December 2010 
 
Huge thaks to everyone that came out to J Rileys and rocked with us, Living Dred, and Evenstar.
That was the last Put Her In The Trunk show for 2010. We will be off the radar for a month or so... while rehearsing for, and recording our next album.  See you in 2011. If you want more frequent updates "like" our facebook page.
 
 
November 2010 
 
Thanks to everyone that came to the Rave,
and rocked with us at the Debra Lynn remembrance show.
We've posted some video of the show on our facebook page .
If you missed it, you missed the chance to be one of the first among your friends
to wear one of our killer new zombie hoodies.
Don't worry, we still have some available.
 
We have some really cool news to share...
We will be recording our new album at Cherry Pit Studios, with Producer Eric LaBrosse
(He has worked with Cain and Abel/Blankimage/Marashino/The Heroes Lie/Bellevue Suite).
Eric's work with the bands mentioned is amazing, and we can't wait to get started with him. We booked the studio starting January 22,2011.
We are super psyched. This will be the place that will capture the sound we want to share with all of you....
finally....a REAL studio, with a REAL producer. So with that, we will be rehearsing rigorously until we enter the studio.
The next (and possibly last until after the recording) show is at J Rileys in Menomonee Falls December 3rd.
Our good friends in Living Dred and Evenstar will be joining us...you don't want to miss it.
More details on our shows page.
Yes ...we will have the new zombie hoodies at this show :)
 
 
October 2010  
Things are rockin' along here...Zombiefeast on October 15th at Club Anything.
 
Also....
It has been brought to our attention,
that the massive outbreak of kids putting girls in trunks has finally gotten out of hand.
Even our own kids have taken our band name literally, and joined in.
We should probably consider a name change, so we can be more "family oriented".
Maybe something like Put The Entire Family In The Trunk
for a nice trip to gumdrop river to pick apples...That might offend the residents near
gumdrop river....and have apple preservation advocates all up in arms....hmmm
this might be tough....
Maybe we should just join everyone else
in their crusade to harass and eliminate bands who's names could be offensive and promote evil.
First on that list would have to be Def Leppard....
How could anyone want to deprive a leopard of its hearing? Someone should call PETA NOW!
How about Alice In Chains? What did Alice do that was so horrible? Chains? Really!?
What about Black Eyed Peas? Seriously...
taking violence out on defenseless vegetables?
Is that what we want the children of the world to be exposed to?
How about Cannibal Corpse? Corpses that eat each other?...that could seriously reduce the need for cemetery's.... put grave diggers, and funeral homes out of work...is that such a good idea,
considering the state our economy is in right now?
People NEED to over think things like band names, so things like this do not happen.
We applaud them all.
We never realized what we could be doing when we decided on our
extremely offensive evil promoting non-family oriented band name.
We will also consider not playing our new song about zombies, just in case we are offending any.
We will keep you posted on whatever we change our name to, when and if we decide to change it.
Thank you for understanding.
 
 
 
September 2010 
We would like to thank everyone that voted for us in the Guitar Center Open for KISS contest.
We didn't win,
but all of your votes got us to 6th place (out of more than 200 bands).
That's pretty awesome.

Dress like a zombie to get 2$ off the cover charge.
 
We have a show in November at The Rave.
Killer Area bands paying  tribute to Debra Lynn.
She did a lot for the West Bend Music scene, and she was always good to us.
We have tickets available for this show for 10$.
For a limited time
you can get them at the new Sk8 shop in Menomonee Falls (Tweakboarding) for 5$ (half price).
They also carry Eternyl Clothing there. 
So go check them out, buy a ticket and an Eternyl shirt while you're there.
We will have some merch available there soon.
 We are currently writing some new stuff, while getting our new bass player Mike up to speed with our songs. We hope to get in the studio before the end of the year to record our cd.
Until then you can download our rehearsal recordings cd for free HERE.
 
 
 
August 2010
 
 We would like to announce that we have found our new bass player.
Mike LeBeau will be playing bass with us now.
He has played guitar in bands with Doug and Jon in the past,
and he's decided to pick up the bass and rock with us. We're glad to have him aboard.
 
We would also like to announce our new sponsorship with Eternyl Clothing Company. Check them out!
 
July 2010
 
Thanks to everyone that came out to the show with Cause For Revelation.
You were probably wondering why we were one member short that night.
Dan decided to quit the band at Mondays rehearsal.
I'm not going to get into details, I will say it wasn't a happy parting.... pretty much a blindside.
Without Blinking, I could rattle of 182 reasons why it was handled like a bad drama movie...... but I won't.
Now its time for us to suck it up :) and move on.
We will be auditioning bass players during the next few weeks,
and we still will be playing all the shows we have booked. 
We will probably be booking more shows during that time as well.
We have a full merch trunk, with new shirt designs... and we need to empty it.
So if you, or someone you know would like to audition send us an email and we'll set it up.

March 2010

  Many discussions have taken place after getting the "final" mix of our cd. We aren't at all happy with the results.

The studio doesn't have the ability to get this to sound like we want. We should have known from the beginning, but we didn't. We have decided to scrap the whole thing, and start again at a REAL studio in... a few months. Sorry for the delay, your patience is appreciated.

January 2010

  First post of the new year...

June 2008 

 

    When a band loses a member, it usually brings them down. As we have proved before....... it won't stop us!

   Yes, its official.....

We have found our new guitar player. Anthony Kuehl will be taking over guitar for Scott. We are excited, and have some renewed energy as of now. As soon as he's up to speed with all our songs, we will be aggressively booking shows again. Anthony's first show with us show is July 12, at the ring. Please come out and show your support.

 

 May 2008

   Yes...we have recently learned that Scott will be leaving the band. As one of the founding members of the band, its sad to see him go. There are no hard feelings and we wish him well. He is going to help make the transition of bringing in a new guitarist as smooth as possible. Scott is also going to record the cd as planned.

  
    With that, we will be looking for another guitarist. Someone that has their own equipment and transportation. We practice twice a week. Usually Thursday nights from 6pm to 8pm, and Sunday at noon(untill football starts, then it moves to Saturday at noon). We are all about having fun, but need a level of commitment as well. If this sounds like something you'd like to try, email  and we'll set up an audition.

    Our next show is July 12 @ The Ring with the legendery Killwhitneydead. and Carnifex!

  We have new shirts/hoodies and they'll be available online soon...for now you can get them at our shows.

   For reasons unknown  our page on myspace was unexpectedly deleted.  The nice people at myspace delete you before telling you what they have a problem with. We have a new page up so please add us again.
  

   We have a bunch of shows scheduled in the next few months,and we will be trying to record our full length cd. For now we have a track up on our myspace page that has Cameron's vocals....go check it out and leave a comment.

New singer

Yes ....it is true...

Put her In The Trunk is done auditioning vocalists. We have enlisted the talents of Cameron (x- Fallen Sephera). We played our first show with him last Saturday in West Bend. He practiced with us twice (and the first was his audition)....and threw down something fierce onstage that night. Hes full of energy , with the voice to match. We're very happy he's come aboard.

We'll have pics from the show up soon. We'll also be adding a online merch order page soon. We have shirts and hoodies available. For now you can pick em up at shows, but they'll be available online soon.

Vocal Auditions


We are looking for a singer. Click HERE to download 4 songs without vocals. Throw some lyrics to em, and email  to set up an audition.


Our singer just bailed on us. We have shows booked, we have an ep in circulation, and shirts/merch. We are ready (and were planning) to record a full length cd in January. We have our own studio. We practice 2 times a week. Usually Thursday night from 6pm to 8 - 8:30 pm, and Saturday from noon till 3. We practice on the northwest side of Milwaukee by the 91st and good hope area. We are serious about the music,but also want to have fun with it. We've all been in bands over the years that have played all over Wisconsin and abroad.  We are looking for a vocalist that can scream (high/low...ability to mix it up) and clean vocal ability is a plus, and one that can be energetic on stage. Must have own transportation, to and from practice/audition. We have a PA so there's no need to bring anything.
