together PANGEA is an American rock band from Santa Clarita, California that is based out of Los Angeles, California. The group has released four full-length albums and is currently signed to Harvest Records.[7][8]

History

Together Pangea (stylized "together PANGEA") was formed in 2009 when longtime friends William Keegan and Danny Bengston met drummer Erik Jimenez at Cal Arts.[6] The group began playing several shows on the Cal Arts campus and as well as many local venues throughout Southern California.[6][7] Originally formed as Pangea, the group was later forced to change their name to together PANGEA.[7] They released their debut record Jelly Jam in 2010 via Lost Sound Tapes.[7] Living Dummy, the group’s second full-length album was released in 2011 by the Burger Records label.[7] Following the release of the album, they began performing with Ty Segall, Mikal Cronin, Wavves, and The Black Lips.[7] Their first national tour, dubbed the Burgerama Caravan of Stars, saw them share the stage with Gap Dream, Cosmonauts, The Resonars, and Curtis Harding.[9][10]

In 2014, together PANGEA's third full length was released through Harvest Records. Titled Badillac, MTV called it one of the most anticipated indie releases of 2014.[11] The band set out on a national tour with Mozes and The Firstborn following the album release.[12]
