Packetloss is a band that breaks up what it means to be a band. Thanks to Covid, working from home is a real thing. Not just for your average day job, but music too. Our name comes from the headache of “Packetloss” when playing together online, it causes lag between us and white noise. (Not Fun!)

Packetloss was formed in April of 2023. The lead guitarist and vocalist Jamie met Geetar Jack on Jamulus and started playing covers of songs together. Steve joined playing drums at times (when he didn’t wake the kids bashing on his drums). In April, Jamie wrote a song called “Guided by the Storm” and enlisted Geetar Jack for Bass and Rhythm Guitar and Steve for Drums.

The style of Packetloss is a wide range of punk / rock / metal with a lot of inspiration from artists such as (but not limited to) Linkin Park, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, NOFX, Blink 182, Sum 41, Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold.

Never Met?

Yes, we have never met as a full band yet! We have recorded all of our songs by recording our individual pieces and mixing them together. (Jamie calls this Covid Style).

What Next?

We have released 2 EPs since our first EP release in September and our debut album will be released this year !

We are meeting up in February and playing live for the first time.
