Hailing from Northwest Indiana, Penitentiary consists of members from Blood In Blood Out, Blackwater, Choking on Reality, To Tha Pavement, & Shut the Fuck Up. Delivering their form of metallic hardcore with a  brutal blend of violent beatdown and thrash. 

Formed in early 2016 by Jake and Gabe who brought together members of their past bands to start jamming. Jake and Chris had already played in bands together since the late 90s while Gabe and Victor since the mid 2000s. Penitentiary  started writing songs and and soon added Mason on vocals. Look for a new full length to drop this year on Upstate
