Like an adrenaline shot to your eardrums, No Punk Influences is blasting out of Monmouth, Illinois with their brand of thrashy, in your face, punk rock.  NPI seeks to influence a lost and fallen world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Since its inception, the band has been dedicated to playing shows and using their driving guitars, and breakneck drums beats, as a vehicle to deliver the message of hope and redemption, found only in Jesus.

The members of the band are:  Loudmouth LaVal (vocals and bass), Chris Lefler (guitar and vocals), Sal-Val (guitar), and Joshy (drums and vocals).

“I hate newspaper style reviews, I hate uninformed descriptions of music, and I hate most punk music.  In spite of that, it is worth saying that NPI is one of the strongest bands, genre aside, in the local Midwest underground scene.  Their music is aggressive, their show is intense, and their dedication to their band is a little disturbing.  Check out NPI.”  -Michael Cook of A Hill To Die Upon

No Punk Influences will be releasing their musical debut this summer.  You can learn more about the band at:
