Pompeii Graffiti is a self-funded, indie rock band from Annapolis, Maryland.

"PG" was formed in 2005 in the band room of Annapolis High School by dorky music nerds. They feverishly played as many shows as they could in one year and went on hiatus in the fall of 2006 so that members could pursue their college educations. They won second place in the 2006 Battle of The Bands but earned "best song award." The prize was tuition to a summer songwriting camp at Berklee College of Music, which ignited the band's passion for off kilter songwriting.

Still nerds, the group reformed in March 2010 and released their first full length album, "Five Minutes To Midnight" in June 2011. 

August 9th, 2013 Pompeii Graffiti released their second studio album, "ANNAPOLITAN."

On April 8th, 2014 they began releasing their farcical youtube web series called INTERNET WORLD TOUR that would become their third album, released April 29th, 2018.

As well as performing their own brand of Indie Rock music, PG likes to perform note-for-note covers of their favorite albums. In 2011-2012 PG covered Cursive's "The Ugly Organ" and in 2012-2013 they covered Neutral Milk Hotel's "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea".

With no plans to slow down PG is currently working on their fourth release, an EP called "Ocean Pines" set to be released Summer 2018 and another full length record set to be released early 2019.

"The choruses are big. The hooks are catchy. And the most important element of a song, the lyrics, never fail. They get flamboyant and they get insightful"

"...smartly makes it way around the rock landscape with songs that often unfold in movements, veering seamlessly from orchestral pop to gentle folk to rock that brushes up against both metal and punk. And for a record with fairly large aspirations, there’s also a humorous vain that keeps pretense to a minimum."

"Pompeii Graffiti has a particular fixation on celebrating failure and the painful truth that humans aren’t really that miserable when we screw up because it is generally the one thing we excel at. Because the songs are closer to short stories than comedy skits -- the way Weezer presents the same subject matter -- the listener goes through a wider range of emotions as the songs unfold."

"They were spectacular, full of energy, and for the first time, I really appreciated their music. It was witty and full of humor, and there was a guitar solo that literally sent shivers down my spine."
