The Briggs are a punk rock band based out of Los Angeles, California.


The Band formed in 1999 under the name "I Decline" by brothers Joey and Jason LaRocca and bassist Matthew Stolarz (a.k.a Duck). In 2001, with the addition of drummer Chris Arredondo (a.k.a. Chris X) the band adopted the name The Briggs. Since the band started touring in 2002, they have shared the stage with many of the biggest bands in punk rock, such as Dropkick Murphys, Bad Religion and Flogging Molly. They have also been involved with The Vans Warped Tour in 2002, 2004, 2007, and 2008. The Briggs released their fourth full length titled Come All You Madmen on SideOneDummy Records on June 17, 2008. Their song This is LA is played as part of the introduction for the Los Angeles Kings at all of their home games. Their song "Harder To Stand" from the album "Back to Higher Ground" was featured in the soundtrack to the film Big Stan (2008).
