In their 23 years as a band, San Diego’s Unwritten Law have seen many subgenres come and go—yet here they
remain, going strong when their contemporaries fall by the wayside. Though they built a steady following of dedicated
fans (especially in Southern California) with their fastpaced brand of punk, the quartet broke into the mainstream in the
early 2000s with their only number one song, “Seein' Red,” when pop punk became a fixture on rock radio. Despite the
internal conflicts that marred the outfit over the past few years, along with singer Scott Russo now the only remaining
member from their formative era, Unwritten Law continues to tour on the strength of their past laurels—which is more
than you can say for many of their peers.
