we are the returners.

We play music we love. We hope you love it too.

Formed in early 2013, the Returners are a five-piece VGM (video game music) band based in Austin, Texas. We play music from all video game eras, with a particular focus on SNES- and PSX-era games. We’re a little metal, a little symphonic, and a lot nerdy.

Our name is a reference to Final Fantasy VI (founder Lauren’s favorite game), originally released in the U.S. as FFIII. If you haven’t played it, you probably should.

If you’re looking to order our album Immune to Silence, check it out on bandcamp!
