Project: Out of Bounds is a four-piece rock-reggae group, comparable to other SoCal bands like Sublime or Slightly Stoopid. However, where other bands of this mold add punk and ska in-between the reggae cracks, P:OB can be progressive, or even metal-like.
Kris Asgharzadeh likens his vocals to H.R. of Bad Brains or reggae legend Buju Bantan. As of summer 2009, the band is rounded out by trippy lead guitarist Austin Lorber, bassist Andy Chase, and drummer Ryan Rutherford.
