Endwell are a hardcore pop-punk band from Queens, New York that formed in 2003; the band have released one independent EP, one Full-Length album on Victory Records, an EP and two Full-Lengths for Mediaskare Records. Endwell formed when Sean Murphy on vocals, Danny Pupplo on guitar, Matthew Rogers on rhythm guitar, Pieter VanDenBerg on bass, and Mike Sciulara on drums got together to make some noise. The band began to play locally at first and started gaining popularity. Endwell decided to independently record and released their first EP titled “The Missing Pieces” in 2005, and then tour the country. Their energy, and heavy guitar-driven live shows began to attract an expanding fan base. The band also entered Battle of the bands, and won, which earned them a spot on the Hellfest bill.

Endwell caught the attention of Victory Records owner Tony Brummel, who signed them after seeing them perform. The band got busy and began to work immediately on their debut album, “Homeland Insecurity,” with Jay Baumgardner (Papa Roach, Evanescence, New Found Glory) producing. The album was released in 2006, and the band toured heavily in support of it. Although they did not headline, they opened for notable acts such as Comeback Kid, It Dies Today, and As Blood Runs Black. After almost two years of consistent touring, the band went through some line-up changes, which stalled their second album. Eventually Victory Records decided to drop Endwell, who went on to find a home in 2008 with Mediaskare Records/Century Media Records.

The band's next offering was the EP, “Revenge is a Healthy Motive” which departed from the band's original pop-punk/hardcore mix, and focused more on hardcore. The band also changed their lyrical style, in reaction to the current state of the band, which did not generate overly positive reviews from both fans and critic alike. Endwell released their second studio album “Consequences” in 2009 on Mediaskare Records. 2011 marked Endwell's second full-length on Mediascare records titled "Punishment,” which displayed a black metal influence mixed in with their hardcore sound. The band continue to write new music.
