Deconbrio is a Coldwave / Industrial-Rock band from Knoxville, TN, headed by frontman Danny Rendo. Rendo – who writes, produces and records his own music – originally started in South Florida before moving to San Francisco and now has a new lineup in Knoxville.
The band’s debut album, Obsessions of a False Idol, was released in 2008 as a free download. It wasn’t long after that they were picked up by Bit Riot Records out of Chicago, IL, and released their EP, The Vanishing, in 2009. Voyeur, Deconbrio’s second full-length album, was released in February 2012 and has received much acclaim, including being included in the best of 2012 by Coma Music Magazine and FiXT. In 2014, they returned to the independent world and released The Art of Violation: Part One, a 5-track, anger-fueled EP.
Wanting to take Deconbrio out of the studio, Rendo put together a live band to help bring the music to the stage. Deconbrio has shared the stage with Motionless in White, Mushroomhead, Combichrist, William Control, SOiL, John 5, Velvet Acid Christ, Davey Suicide, One-Eyed Doll, and many more.
Since the release of The Vanishing, Rendo has lent his remixing skills to a few artists, including Caustic, Celldweller, I Will Never Be The Same and Torrent Vaccine, has recorded a cover of Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” for the Coma Music compilation “Tainted Candy: A Tribute to 80’s New Wave”, and has produced a few tracks for South Florida-based hip hop artist MC Gaps.
