BRC is a 2 piece band hailing from New London, CT; (Adam Wujtewicz: bass, vocals; Meghan Killimade: drums), and are centered around hypnotic doom and gloom riffing and sludgy shoe-gaze soundscapes.

The band started in 2008 with a vague idea of writing rock songs that didn’t involve guitar and has progressed and evolved into a fully formed heavy-psychedelic riff machine.

After about 4 years of sporadic shows and home recorded releases, BRC slowed their tempos and upped their dynamics to really find their sound. Moving from their punk-meets-blues beginnings and infusing hooks and choruses into a doom metal setting, they became heavier and noisier while still retaining a rock sensibility.

The shows started to pick up again in 2011 and songwriting progressed until they had crafted enough songs to record their first full length album. In October of 2012, BRC went into Sonelab studios in Easthampton, MA to record Red Over Red with Justin Pizzoferrato. The album, which was released January 2013, features 12 tracks that ran the gamut from noisy punk to full on stoner doom. 

Over the next 2 years of playing and promoting Red Over Red, BRC played shows throughout the northeast with the likes of Weedeater, Royal Thunder, Deville, Castle and Black Pyramid. The songwriting process showed the influence of playing with a heavier breed of band but still BRC maintained the alternative rock dynamics and the shape-shifting qualities from Red Over Red

Having honed in on a live setting and with 4 more lengthy songs written, BRC went back to Sonelab and Justin Pizzoferrato to record Fortunate Some in January 2015 and was released October 3, 2015. Focusing a great deal more on melody and heavy psychedelic exploration, Fortunate Some proves to be quite a big step in the BRC sound.

2017: The band continue to play live shows and are currently writing songs for their next record.

"BRC is one of the gutsiest bands in the land. Whereas bass and drums are generally a starting point — a workmanlike foundation upon which decorative things are built — drummer Meghan Killimade and bassist/singer Adam Wujtewicz saw an end product. This would be a foolhardy venture for almost anyone else, but Killimade and Wujtewicz have the raw power and fearlessness to pull it off in grand style".
- Ben McCanna, Post Mortem (November 29, 2014)


"2 words: Awe Inspiring. Adam [bass/vocals] & Meghan [drums] have an undeniable chemistry and put on a live show that rivals any 5pc. dual guitar riff fest on the planet. Adam's brooding stage presence compliments Meghan's bombastic and passionate drumming perfectly. Their songs are heavy on hooks, flawless execution & fuzz. They are a lethal duo who I assume won't be a band that goes unrecognized nationally for very much longer."
-John Fadden, musician / guest writer Heavy Planet (July 8, 2014)
 

"Bedroom Rehab Corporation blast through with the power of a Force-5 hurricane. They take DNA samples from punk, metal and stoner rock, splice it with intriguing lyrical concepts, and take flight in unique fashion.For one thing, instead of a guitar/drums format, Killimade's carpet-bombs percussion is augmented by Wujtewicz's prowess on four-string bass. His mastery and creativity with a multi-effects pedal board is such, though, that the tonal possibilities far exceed the standard rhythm section construct - and this is a loud, howling and, at surprising and effective points in the course of an evening's set, almost delicate combination."
- Rick Koster & Peter Huoppi, The Day (March 9, 2012)


"The sounds produced between the pair is just exactly what each moment seems to call for, it's an obvious synergy of talent and mutual understanding, and the result is a battered, decaying wall of sound, that Adam and Meghan are standing confidently on, throwing loose bricks at your head."
- Christian Dyer, show-goer / reviewer (April 21, 2012)
