Chin Injeti, Rian Peters, and Shallom Johnson formed Suffer The Children in early 2016, riding out the last weeks of a long Pacific Northwest winter. It was a meeting of three travellers who had all made plans to be somewhere else that January – but ended up foregoing LA, London and Cape Town to stay and write songs in Vancouver.

STC developed out of a mutual need to prioritize three things: intelligent songwriting, honest collaboration, and the freedom to experiment as friends and creators – without a specific end goal in mind.

Fast forward a year and a half and this casual connection has developed into an emerging project whose sound spans across genres and disciplines.

With two singles released and an EP ready to drop by the end of 2017, Suffer The Children continues to write and record, while fine-tuning a larger vision for what the group will eventually become.
