The Panic Beats is a punk rock band based out of Michigan and is the demented offspring of Dale VanThomme. He ventured into this solo project in early 2007 and has been spiraling into madness ever since. Influenced by the Ramones and Misfits, the songs are fast and straightforward with a dark, mean-spirited tone. A love of horror movies, along with a skewed view of romance, heavily directs the lyrics and themes. Women and children: beware!
