Abstract Artimus is an American music composer and performer from Alabama currently living in Brooklyn, NY.  His high energy shows and memorable guitar riffs have earned a reputation after years of touring in support of several full length releases.  In his youth his father was the drummer for the Jimmie Van Zant Band (cousin of Ronnie Van Zant of Lynyrd Skynyrd) which allowed Artimus to mature around some of the most prolific Southern Rock musicians of all time.  His formative years consisted of an array of show scenarios varying from living room hurricane parties to a gig at The University of Alabama in which the crowd of students destroyed the room during the band's set.  Artimus was accused of inciting a riot and thrown off campus.  Since then he has toured extensively in Europe, North and South America and in 2015 he released 'The City Arrives' on the largest independent record label in Spain, Subterfuge Records.  In 2020 he recruited legendary bassist J.D. Pinkus from Butthole Surfers and Melvins to play on his single "Methuselah's Rhyme" which was accompanied by an over the top sci-fi/horror animated music video.  He's currently working on a new full length with longtime Guided By Voices producer Travis Harrison due out in 2024.
