Rough Francis is a rock-n-roll band from Burlington (VT) formed by three brothers and two of their close friends. The young Hackneys originally started the group as a tribute to their father and uncle’s 1970’s proto-punk band Death. After a few tribute shows, the group began to write and record their own music. The loud screams and maximum volume of Rough Francis still echoes Death—but they also manage to crystalize a unique sound of their own, channeling live energy from 60’s garage rock, Motown and 80’s Hardcore.
