Band/artist history
Makeshift3 started in 1995 from San Diego, CA, and is widely known to be the first band to uniquely blend sounds from rock, pop, metal, and punk. Their original name was just Makeshift due to using "makeshift" equipment in the early years, but later added the "3" forming Makeshift3 because of legal issues similar to Blink 182 adding the "182". Their sound ranges from influences such as Blink 182 and Pantera and specialize in a heady fusion of hook-filled pop-punk and blistering hardcore in the vein of bands like A Day to Remember, Chunk!, No, Captain Chunk!, the Wonder Years, and Attack Attack!. They have been on multiple national tours, earned a spot on the Vans Warped Tour, and have played shows with MxPx, Bad Religion, Lagwagon, New Found Glory, NOFX, Good Charlotte, Alkaline Trio, American Hi-Fi, Anti-Flag, Thrice, Slick Shoes, Dogwood, Project 86, etc. They have been featured in magazines, online interviews, ESPN, TV shows, along with radio play worldwide. Album releases include "Dr. Softoff's Childproof Bug Bombs" in 1996, "Mission Possible" in 1997 (EP), "Fuel for Life" in 1999, "Game Day" in 2001, and Fluorescent Black in 2005. They've also released songs with many record labels (Tooth and Nail records, etc.) for many compilation CDs featuring Thrice, NOFX, Thursday, Yellowcard, Strung Out, Good Riddance, and Slick Shoes. They are currently open to offers regarding the release of a 5th album/EP.
