Middle Class Rut play a visceral brand of alternative rock that echoes the intensity of Jane's Addiction and Refused, the pummeling backbone of Rage Against The Machine and the anthemic post-punk core of The Foo Fighters.Read More...
Only in their mid-20s, Middle Class Rut, consisting of Zack Lopez (guitar/vocals) and Sean Stockham (drums/vocals), are already veteran musicians; both guys were core members of Leisure, which was signed to DreamWorks back in 2000 when Sean and Zack were just in their early teens. After Leisure disbanded several years later, Zack and Sean returned to their hometown of Sacramento, California. Hunkering down in their homegrown studio, they started jamming and writing music together. After penning more than 60 songs, their new project, Middle Class Rut, was officially born in December 2006.
The band's first national tour happened in the fall of 2008, when they hit the road with The Receiving End Of Sirens and Envy On The Coast. From the first show of that tour, Middle Class Rut completely destroyed expectations and won over legions of new fans. After seeing the band's intense and
charismatic performance, Alternative Press wrote in its January 2008 issue that "..it's mind-blowing to witness the sheer depth and complexity of the sound these two guys are capable of unleashing on their own, but once the novelty subsides, you're left with incendiary post-rock with visible traces of 90s alternative."

- LyricsI have no space
No room to move around
And this box is getting smaller
I'm trying to get out
How did I get so far
- LyricsDangling on the edge of a lifelong day shift
Sick of the days but they just don't work
Someone come and pull me out
I never lived a full year
And if it ain't working
- LyricsThe days keep dragging on
Those rats keep pushing on, whoa
The slowest race around
We all just race around, whoa
And when the hope's gone the weight falls on me
- LyricsI can't get off
Just to get back on
I made this place
Now I don't belong
I can't be followed around
- LyricsDon't you miss your family and your friends?
Don't it feel like this road never ends?
And don't your freedom make you feel so small?
You knock one down and there's another wall
And so you let it creep back in your memory (in your memory)
