Return The Ransom

With roots steeped in the gritty, working man’s ethos of Pittsburgh, PA, RETURN THE RANSOM deliver hook-laden, high energy modern rock with an aggressive edge.

Formed in the fall of 2008, the members of RTR came together from varied backgrounds with the common goal of writing original music and bringing something new to the Pittsburgh music scene.

Members include vocalist Chris Novak, guitarists John Grego and Matt Walluk, bassist Randy Rowser, and Jerode Habas & Chuck Simpson sharing duty on drums.

Mining inspirations for their music from life experience, RETURN THE RANSOM is at times sentimental, but never loses their honest Steel Town edge.

No posing, no posturing; the music of RTR is unadorned with gimmickry or the trappings of short-lived fads. What you hear is what you get: Real, passionate, modern alternative rock.
