Formed in the fall of 2017, Ipecac is a melodic alternative rock band comprised of four best friends.  With a throbbing, heavy rhythm section, searing guitar solos and soaring vocals, each member combines their parts to create a sound reminiscent of 70’s and 80’s British metal such as Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden overlaid with the emotion of more modern rock such as Muse and My Chemical Romance.  Lyrically, introspective themes such as relationships, social alienation and mental distress are exposed and explored.  Together, this recipe enthralls the audience with its honest passion and ferocious energy!

Having opened for established national touring acts such as Joyous Wolf and Samantha Fish,Ipecac is a working, hard rocking college band on the rise having released their debut EP on time honored independent Denver record label, Sailor Records. Sailor describes the band as “solid rock with a soul feel and a glam flair. The lyrics convey a message of hope, but in a don’t fuck with me kind of way!” Their new eponymous EP is a rock n' roll ride that you'll want to take over and over again!

The band was voted Westword Magazine's Reader's Choice Best New Band in 2022 and Indie 102.3’s Listener’s Poll Top Local 303 Band of 2023 (out of 143 bands). With a super entertaining rock show, the band has played the Underground Music Showcase in Denver the last three years, as well as the Westword Music Showcase and FOCOMX, and was the featured performance artist for July 2023 on Indie 102.3, in addition to being played on the Locals Only show on I Heart Radio’s Channel 93.3. Always supportive of charitable work the band has donated shows for Haseya Advocacy Program, Celebration of Pride, Marshall Fire Relief and Milestones For Maxwell to name a few.

Past plays include: The Bluebird Theater, Summit, the Marquis, the Aggie Theater, the Mesa Theater and more!
