The Frightnrs were formed in 2010 in the borough of Queens – far beyond the gilded wealth of Manhattan and the pretentious hipsterdom of Brooklyn. The four piece ensemble took the cooled out vintage vibes of Jamaican rock steady, combined it with the raw energy and vocal stylings of 80s Rub A Dub and added a touch of punk rock spirit to create an entirely unique sound that redefines what a reggae band can sound like. For the past seven years, The Frightnrs have been one of the hardest working bands in New York, crafting their live set and developing their sound in the DIY underground of NYC reggae and its mosh up of live bands and sound system culture. Their hard work paid off as The Frightnrs debut release garnered attention and airplay from reggae / radio legend David “Ram Jam” Roddigan and Mad Decent’s Diplo, who released a Frightnrs EP on his Mad Decent imprint in the Summer of 2015. With Nothing Left to Say, released in September 2016, The Frightnrs have issued a brilliant final testament to their late lead singer Dan Klein, and will continue to go forward, representing the sound of now standing firm on the traditions of the past.
The Frightnrs are Chuck Patel, Preet Patel, Dan Klein, Norihiro Kikuta, and Richard Terrana.
