Unwritten Law is an American rock band formed in 1990 in Poway, California (a suburb of San Diego) and currently recording for Abydos Records. They have released seven full-length studio albums and have toured the world extensively, including performances on the Vans Warped Tour. They are best known for their singles "Seein' Red," "Rest of My Life," and "Save Me (Wake Up Call)." Their most recent release is a "best of" album entitled The Hit List, released on January 2, 2007.
Unwritten Law formed in Poway, California (a suburb of San Diego) in 1990. Original drummer Wade Youman generally takes credit for starting Unwritten Law, and a number of players came and went before the lineup coalesced to include Scott Russo on vocals, Steve Morris and Rob Brewer on guitars, and John Bell on bass. Unwritten Law released their first cassette demo in 1992, followed by the 7" vinyl single Blurr in 1993.
In 1994 Unwritten Law recorded their first album, Blue Room, which was released by local label Red Eye Records. It established their early sound of fast-paced punk rock and gave them the opportunity to build their reputation by playing local shows in and around the San Diego area.
Their second album, Oz Factor, was released in 1996.
By 1997 Unwritten Law had signed to Interscope Records and bassist John Bell had left the band. Pivit bassist Micah Albao joined them in Seattle for the recording of their self-titled album Unwritten Law which was released in 1998. The singles "Lonesome," "Cailin," and "Teenage Suicide" became minor hits on rock radio stations. Pat "PK" Kim, formerly of Sprung Monkey, joined as their new permanent bass player and the band embarked on the Vans Warped Tour, which took them across North America, Europe, and Australia.
Unwritten Law spent a considerable amount of time recording and preparing their next release, 2002's Elva.
In 2003 Unwritten Law was invited by VH1 to film an episode of the live acoustic series Music in High Places. The invitation happened somewhat by accident, as the station was hoping to attract Jimmy Eat World but contacted Unwritten Law's management by mistake. Unwritten Law recorded a set of acoustic performances in various locales at Yellowstone National Park. They prepared the recordings for release as an album, but Interscope declined to release it.
Unwritten Law spent much of 2006 recording a "best of" album entitled The Hit List, which was released on January 2, 2007 by Abydos Records.
Also during 2007, Palermo acted as fill-in touring drummer for Papa Roach. In February 2008 it was announced that Palermo had joined Papa Roach permanently. Meanwhile, Unwritten Law filmed a live DVD at the Key Club in Hollywood, California in March of 2008.
