Defining 13 is an original rock band from Upstate NY. Self-described as "Stoner Rock with Attitude," this trio has combined their individual influences to create a musical style of their own. Some of their influences include Black Sabbath, Corrosion of Conformity, Black Label Society, Alice In Chains, and Clutch.

Although all three band members went to high school together, this is the first band they have played in together. In 2015, timing was right and they decided to form Defining 13 with the common goal of writing, recording, and performing original music. They have been doing just that for the past two years. They recorded and released their self-titled debut EP in 2016, and are currently writing material for their second EP, which is scheduled for an early 2018 release.

Defining 13 has been playing throughout the New York area and are looking to play other parts of the east coast, and eventually work their way to the west coast as well. To date, Defining 13 has shared a stage with acts such as Krash Karma, Vajra, Kelen Heller, Elisium, and Texas Hippie Coalition to name a few.
