I remember when I first heard the band "The Interrupters." I noticed that the artist was signed to Hellcat records, which I associate with some of my favorite bands like Rancid, The Transplants, and Dropkick Murphys. So I figured "this can't be all that bad." I dove into one of their first music videos for the song "By My Side." I was immediately reminded of Rancid. The front woman for the band had a Tim Armstrong vibe about her, so I continued on with the video. Then the lyrics "outcasts in a small town, in Big Sky Country" was sung, and I was hooked. I wanted to learn more about the band and its association with Montana.

According to Wikipedia

Allen was born in Montana on February 2nd 1979. She has said that she had a "rough upbringing", and "ended up in a foster home at a young age and moved from school to school". Growing up, Joan Jett was a big influence and inspiration for Allen. Allen began singing in bands in Montana and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18 to pursue a career in music.


Aimee's rough upbringing is actually the inspiration for the band's new album, "Into the Wild."

The Interrupters recently performed on national television on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Performing a single off of the new album called "Raised by Wolves." Which we can only assume is about Aimee's rough upbringing here in Montana.
