Def Con One is an established band founded over 10 years ago by guitarist Johnny Hunter and ex-Venom drummer Antton Lant. The band played at Bloodstock in 2011 after the release of their debut EP. A subsequent year of touring and gigging all over the UK saw their fanbase increase significantly, and Def Con One signed to Scarlet Records in 2012, releasing their debut album 'Warface' the same year and their second album 'II' in February 2014.
