In 2004, JP Anderson formed the group Rabbit Junk based out of Seattle. The group’s unique sound and name was noticed by Metalhammer and various music outlets. Thus, bringing them to their newest album release, Rabbit Junk will Die: Meditations on Morality, which was just released January 26.
“I really want to draw attention to this record,” Anderson shared with Idaho Music Scene. “It is the best record we have done, and will be our biggest release.”
Anderson is a college professor and father of two children. He is currently working on his Ph.D in Political Science.
“It was brutal to put together an album as a parent and college professor,” Anderson said.
The name Rabbit Junk was inspired by a poem wrote by an anonymous person in the 1940s.
“My least favorite thing is to describe is how my music sounds. Not a single song will sound like another. This new album will have the most consistent sound.”
Rabbit Junk currently has 28,923 monthly listeners on Spotify the number has steadily been increasing since the release of the new album. Prior the album release they had released two songs off of the new album which performed well and were topping charts. The album has been number 4 on Bandcamp alternative charts, and number 1 on Bandcamp industrial chart for the third week.
We have developed a sort of cult following,” Anderson offered. “We have some hardcore fans that really care about the music.”
I invite people to fill in our music and lyrics with their own life experiences. Lyrically I try to be vague.”
Anderson does all of the Rabbit Junk production. He mixes and masters the music, and plays all of the instruments heard in it. Additional vocals in Rabbit Junk are done by Summ Grrl.
My mom played acoustic guitar as a hobby. I can remember that clear as day. At the age of 12 I started getting in to bands like Nine Inch Nails, Metallica and NWA. I started playing guitar at 14.”
At the age of 14 Anderson created a GWAR cover band and dressed up like GWAR. He played one song with some friends.
“I don’t even remember what song it was,” Anderson admitted.
“This album is by far the most successful album I’ve ever put out, period,” Anderson said.
