96 Bitter Beings

96 Bitter Beings is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 2016 by vocalist and guitarist Deron Miller (original founder, frontman and songwriter of West Chester rock band CKY, with whom he parted ways with in 2011). 96 Bitter Beings carries on Miller's signature songwriting with lead guitarist Kenneth Hunter, bassist Shaun Luera and drummer Tim Luera.

The group came together in 2014 to record a 20th anniversary album for Foreign Objects - a sci-fi death metal band formed by Miller and Jess Margera in 1995 pre CKY. After a string of live performances throughout 2015 as Foreign Objects, the newly formed lineup ran an Indiegogo campaign to fund the formation of 96 Bitter Beings in 2016. Through crowdfunding, they released their first album titled Camp Pain in 2018 along with multiple perk tracks that have since been made public by the contributors.

Former Jackass star Chris Raab works closely with the band producing and directing music videos, the first of which for "On and On and On" from their album Camp Pain.

In January and February 2020, the band headlined a North American tour through the United States and Canada with supporting acts The Native Howl and Locust Grove, finishing just before lockdowns began.

Their newest album Synergy Restored was confirmed by Miller to be complete and pending an official release date, with one music video confirmed to be completed by Raab for "Vaudeville's Revenge".
