Powered by Audioscrobbler™There are multiple artists that go under the name Dumb.

1) Dumb is a punk rock band that formed in 2015 in Vancouver, Canada. The band recorded 2 albums and 3 EPs before signing with Mint Records. The album Seeing Green was released in 2018, topping the !earshot college radio chart in late July.

2) Dumb were an alternative indie band from Birmingham formed in 2013 and split in 2014. " Influenced by the likes of Pavement, The Cribs and cult American indie rock heroes Built To Spill, Dumb’s transatlantic, guitar-heavy sound and self-assured swagger has already caught the attention of NME and BBC Radio 1. Made up of slick melodies and infectious hooks fronted singer Dylan Williams’ rasping vocal tones, the band are distinguishing themselves from the rest of what the Midlands has to offer musically.

“For years indie bands were held back and were quite twangy,” explains guitarist Tom Minchin. “We thought we’d turn it all up to ten as we don’t want anything to sound too small. I know it’s a bit crude or garish, but we like everything to be in your face.”

Following a string of single releases and a debut gig at London’s Koko, the band embarked upon a rigorous gigging ritual, sharing the stage with the likes of Darlia, Skaters, LSA, Superfood, Baby Strange and Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs plus a memorable night opening their manager, Jon Brookes’ memorial night at Royal Albert Hall last October.Singer, Dylan says “It felt more natural than any other gig we’d done. We were just soaking up the whole experience playing alongside such Great British heavyweights as New Order, The Vaccines and The Charlatans.”

3) Dumb has been involved with the Finnish underground hiphop scene since the very early days. Two cassettes, "Dumb Shit!" and "Shotgun Karaoke EP", have been released on Anti-Party Music and the first proper album "Paperwrists" was released in December 2010. In addition to his solo efforts, Dumb has featured on the Blue Phantoms Network collective releases.

4) Dumb were a 1990s/2000s alternative/indie band from Manchester, England lead my Mark Hoyle (vocals, guitar), who with Cathy Brooks (bassist) formerly lead the seminal Dub Sex. Dumb, with a two-drummer set-up, have been compared to Joy Division and Fugazi in musical style. They released a couple of albums Thirsty - Don't Drink From The Overflow(1996) and King Tubby meets Max Wall Uptown (2000) (Read NME review here: http://www.nme.com/reviews/dumb/2483) and also recorded one John Peel session in December 1996.

5) Another completely different Dumb are a french indie rock band.

6) Dumb is also the name of a Japanese Punk group composed mostly of members from THE RYDERS, The STRUMMERS, PONI-CAMP, and Kemuri.

7) There is also a DUMB from Austin, Texas. Self-described as country fried pop-rockers led by beer guzzling, motorcycle riding Ohio-to-Texas refugee Cory Baum, they play pretty basic three-chord country punk.

8) Yet another (non-capitalized) dumb exists in Austin, Texas. Their music is mainly of hard rock/screamo. Founded by guitarist/singer Daniel Dietrick, the band itself consists of only two people, a drummer and guitarist.
