Teenage Bottlerocket is an American punk rock band formed in Laramie, Wyoming, United States in 2000. The band was formed by twin brothers Ray and Brandon Carlisle, following the dissolution of their previous band, Homeless Wonders, in 2000. The band's music is heavily influenced by guitarist/co-vocalist Kody Templeman's other band, The Lillingtons, and punk rock acts such as Ramones, Screeching Weasel, Green Day, Bouncing Souls, and Misfits. On November 7, 2015, drummer Brandon Carlisle died unexpectedly after a brief hospitalization. Originally consisting of Ray (bass, vocals), Brandon (drums), and Zach Doe (guitar), the band released its debut EP A Bomb on a Laramie communal label, One Legged Pup, and distributed through Lost Cat Records, in 2002.
