BROCKHAMPTON (stylized in all caps) is an American rap collective formed in San Marcos, Texas, in 2015 and currently based in California.
Led by Kevin Abstract, BROCKHAMPTON formed partially through the online forum "KanyeToThe", and are a boy band. Complex magazine describes the group as "gay, black, white, DIY, ambitious, all-inclusive, and would-be pop stars," and this diversity is what largely distinguishes their lyrics and sound.
The group consists of vocalists Kevin Abstract, Matt Champion, Merlyn Wood, and Dom McLennon, vocalists/producers Joba and Bearface, and producers Romil Hemnani, Jabari Manwa, and Kiko Merley, as well as graphic designer Henock "HK" Sileshi, photographer Ashlan Grey, web designer Roberto Ontenient (who also features prominently in voice skits), and manager Jon Nunes.
The group released their first mixtape, All-American Trash, in 2016. Their debut studio album, Saturation, was released in June 2017, followed by Saturation II in August and Saturation III in December.
In March 2018, BROCKHAMPTON announced they had signed a record deal under the label RCA Records. Their fourth album, Iridescence, was released in September 2018 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The album is also the first in their second trilogy, known as "The Best Years of Our Lives".
In August 2019, BROCKHAMPTON released their fifth album, Ginger.
