Render Me Useless is a New Jersey alternative rock band, formed by twin brothers Travis and Justin Turk. Their music can be compared to the sounds of Senses Fail, Paramore and other emotional pop punk artists that had emerged in the late 2000’s. With melodic guitar riffs, catchy hooks and sonic bass booms, your guaranteed to be blown away by these original tunes.
Their debut album “Love for Lust” sparked an interest in the local teenage music scene back in 2006. After selling out numerous shows, RMU was nominated as the number one headlining act at the Galaxy Café music venue in Summerville NJ before the venue shut down in 2008.
The band saw their first rise to fame after winning a local contest landing them a headlining slot on the mainstage of the National Rock Summit Music Festival in Pensacola FL. From there they went on to win several battles of the band competitions for Gorilla Productions at the Crossroads in Garwood NJ.
RMU released a new EP “Driving in Fast Forward” in 2009 and continued to headline venues across NJ, PA and NY before taking a break from the scene in 2011. After a long struggle to maintain band members, Travis and Justin decided to quit touring.
The band wrote and recorded several songs since then. Songs that have not yet made it into the digital market. Well, the band is back and happy to announce that new music will be coming your way soon!
