DEAF PENALTY is a melodic punk/hardcore band from Helsinki, Finland. Formed in 2000 to create some melodic punk rock to the finnish scene with influences from such bands as Spermbirds and Good Riddance. After a quick demo session DP released their first album (Eleven hours to go) later that year and the second album (100 reasons to die) 2 years later.
After some quiet years and other projects DP started to play together again after some lineup adjustments and they finally started recording their third album in December 2013.
Band’s current lineup is: Viktor Pohtokari [vocals] Henri Huhtiniemi [bass] Jani Malmgren [drums] Juho Liesmäki [guitar] Pekka Palonkorpi [guitar]
