Impuritan - an experimental rock three-piece from San Francisco - consists of Alex Eliopoulos (guitar/bass/keys/vocals), David Molina (guitar/bass/keys/electronics/vocals), and Pepe Abad (drums/percussion). Formed in 2011 by Alex as a solo recording project, the lineup soon bloomed into a musical collective.

Not your typical San Francisco band, its members hail from Greece, El Salvador, and Peru. The music's experimental nature allows for both duo and trio performances by combining live instrumentation with live loops & samples to create lush walls of sound.

Their debut EP "Hijacked Artifacts, Treasured Forms" was released in 2012 on Distant Spore Records. Impuritan began performing consistently in the Bay Area at music venues, art spaces, and outdoor "guerilla" spaces - often with live projections/visuals.

Their first full-length “Make It Look Like Nothing Happened" was released in 2014. It received positive reviews from the likes of KZSU Stanford and The Bay Bridged, along with college radio airplay on KALX and KZSU. Impuritan soon toured the Pacific Northwest and Southern California, plus organized and curated Mutant Soundwave - a day-long festival in Oakland featuring experimental, noisy indie music.

Impuritan released “Everything Is Magick” in 2016 - an eight-song alchemical mix of psychedelia, post-rock, space-rock, ambient noise, and surf. A new single "Spruce" -- off the upcoming EP "Altered Statues" -- is out now. They completed a nine-date US east coast tour in June 2016 (including a show with The Veldt & performing at Local Legends Festival in NJ), and a ten-date US west coast tour in April 2017 from the northern tip of Washington to the southern tip of California. Their music has received consistent airplay on KALX, KZSU, and KFJC in the Bay Area and beyond.

Impuritan is a sonic embodiment of life, death, love, hate, space, time, evolution and extinction. An abstract dream or visceral nightmare. In stereo. Wellspring eternal.

"Impuritan binds its post-rock to adventurous psych and noise elements."
- KQED Arts

"Takes you down a new sonic pathway yet never leads you back. If you want to get lost, Impuritan is the band to lose yourself to."
- The Bay Bridged

"Difficult-to-pigeonhole, psych-influenced rock that also incorporates trippy effects/knob turning, dark western twang, and a noise wash track to end it all."
- KZSU Stanford
