Now this band I don't believe is widely known and don't get enough credit on the music circuit. The band was started by childhood friends Ronnie Winter and Duke Kitchens in an AP music theory class which they shared in 2001. They were both in other bands, covering songs in the vein of Blink 182 and MxPx. After members from Duke and Ronnie's other bands (Dishonest and The Recovery) joined them, the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus was officially formed in 2003. The name 'Red Jumpsuit Apparatus' was chosen by the band voting for random words they threw up on a wall.
