The Profane Anything Band is a 5-piece original rock band based out of Austin, TX. Originally a 4-piece band, our first practice happened on April 20th 2011 in Gabriel's laundry room. Exactly two years later in 2013, we released our first EP Liquid Rainbow Math. We followed that up December 21st of the same year with our full length album Freedom Mountain. In 2014 we added our fifth member Sam on keyboards. On August 21 2017, we released our third studio album self titled The Profane Anything Band. Currently, we are writing new songs and playing shows around Austin, TX.
