Formed in San Diego in the early 90's, Unwritten Law was a major part of the pop-punk movement that swept the decade with staple releases like Blue Room, Oz Factor, and Unwritten Law. It was in the late 90's that the band would tour the world on The Vans Warped Tour and spring them into their biggest release to date Elva. As the band developed through the early 00's they began honing in on the ever growing punk energy while featuring more of a rock sound which still remains present in their live shows to date. Today, the band has released seven full-length studio albums which sold over 2 million copies and released half-a-dozen radio hits including, "Seein' Red," and "Save Me (Wake Up Call)," both of which entered the top 5 in the US Modern Rock Charts.
