Since its creation in 96′, the band has toured the states, sold albums all over the world and have gained tons of fans with their “High Octane Rock n Roll” music. The band has survived line-up changes and record label collapses to morph into a real rock n’ roll powerhouse.

The band released it’s 1st full length CD “Double or Nothing” in 1998 to rave revues in local magazines, fanzines & online websites. In March of 2002 the boys released their follow-up entitled “The Right & Wrong EP” which was voted “Independent Album Of The Year” at the 12th Annual Los Angeles Music Awards in 2002, 2003 saw the release of “Mama Tried” (on the now defunct Middle Finger Records) which was featured on 95.5 KLOS radio in Los Angeles. 10 years after its debut release the band is now prepared to release their 4th studio disc…”We’re No Angels”, which is a preview of the full length to come.

Second Chance has shared the stage with acts like : Trapt, Save Ferris, Dee Dee Ramone, No Motiv, D.I., Los Infernos, Face to Face, Youth Brigade, Dramarama, Welt, Zeke, U.S. Bombs & Bullets And Octane, Adolescents to name a few.

Second Chance is one hell of a live band, even though punk rock has become some what of a cultural phenomonon, Second Chance can still capture the adrenaline of a kick ass rock band. Straight up in your face Rock & Roll!!! Make sure you catch them when they roll through your town.
