Junkyard Groove was formed in the year 2005 and have become a main stay in the Indian Independent music scene. A band that has seen every high and low of being in a band, from being signed to an international label, opening for some of the biggest bands in the world like Iron maiden, Incubus, Prodigy, Robert Plant and more, to being dropped from their label, and going through line-up changes.
Their first album 11:11 was a huge success garnering a big fan base and winning quite a few awards. Their song ‘its Ok’ has become a part of play lists on every English radio station in India. Junkyard Groove was one of the first bands to take advantage of social media and viral marketing in India.
In April 2011 after a small hiccup Junkyard Groove was back with a new line up with Ameeth Thomas founding member on vocals and guitars, Naveen Thomas coming in on lead guitars is a very experienced guitarist from Bangalore, Sajith Satya the bass prodigy from Chennai belonging to the Satya clan and Shaskank Vijay a drummer that makes a four piece band sound like 5. Since then they have put out 2 singles ‘Beautiful Crime’ and ‘Speed of Love’ written, produced and engineered by front man Ameeth Thomas.
One thing is for sure this is a band that does not play by anyone's rules, but their own.
