Channel 43 is a melodic punk rock band from Richmond, Virginia, USA. Formed in 1999 by the same three guys who play in it today, the music is fast, loud, fun, and packed with hooks and melodies. With roots mainly, but not exclusively, in old school metal and new school punk rock, they are a culmination of power, speed, and precision, with pop tendencies. Their journey through the years has produced 3 full-length albums, with an EP on the way. Along with purely kicking ass, perseverance tops the list of C43’s attributes, as the highs and lows of such a time span would and have derailed most bands.
