“Orange County’s Bristol to Memory have been slugging it out in the emo/punk trenches for more than a decade, releasing five EPs, touring North America, seeding their music to various television shows and earning comparisons to heavyweights such as Taking Back Sunday and Saves the Day. In another era, they might be rock radio heroes, yet perhaps the best is yet to come.”- Buzzbands.LA

First formed in 2005, their name originates from the cross streets in Santa Ana where front man Rory O’Connell, brother/bassist, Kealan O’Connell and their childhood friend, drummer, Alex Buster, grew up. Rounded out by Daniel Wonacott (former guitarist for Finch) Bristol To Memory is now stronger than ever. Their musical compositions and collaboration evoke a feeling of nostalgic excitement with their dynamic guitar progression, thrilling choruses, and poetic lyrics.

Touring the United States, Canada and most recently Mexico City, Bristol To Memory has performed on noteworthy stages such as the Vans Warped Tour, SXSW Music Festival, House Of Blues, The Roxy, and The Whiskey.

Bristol To Memory’s music has already been licensed for several national television networks such as MTV, The Oxygen Channel, and Fox Sports West with the Los Angeles Angels Baseball Club.

Receiving the award for ‘best punk band’ from OC Weekly in both 2014 and 2015, Bristol To Memory has gained a reputation of one of the foremost up and coming bands in Southern California.
