Ruptured was founded by guitarist Michael Minard. After leaving the US military, he moved back to Iowa and quickly formed the band that you currently can see today.

Trevor Troupe was the first to join and has proven himself to be a powerful front man, and very talented guitar player. Shortly after, Isaac McBean joined the line up as Ruptured’s drummer and has given the band a very unique and heavy sound.

After a few failed attempts to complete the line up, Ruptured was finally complete with the addition of our bass player Billy Thompson. He has taken on the challenges that the band has required from him, and is starting to make his presence known.

Ruptured is excited to see what this year, and our future holds, and is excited to release their debut album “REDEMPTION” , and start playing as many shows as they can.
