Throttlebody / Bio

The musical landscape of Detroit is unconventional, to say the least. Music is the lifeblood of the city, and it is given a special twist by its bands. They do things differently in the Motor City, with a unique musical perspective that is innovative and sometimes conceptual, but always ties together all the influences to create a sound that just plain rocks.

Its with this attitude that a new band steps into the ring. THROTTLEBODY is already creating a stir in the city..s rock community with an explosive and fresh approach to heavy music. Combining elements of electronic music and metal, the band has created a multi-dimensional sound that is built on solid songwriting - first and foremost.

Andy and Kyle were formerly in a band called Solid Frog, signed to the Detroit-based independent label Overture/Overcore. That bands (2) full-length releases built a sizable and dedicated following that has stuck with the band as they have progressed and mutated into the current project. THROTTLEBODY was officially formed at the end of 2000, with Aaron and Shaun and Scott Smail joining soon after.

Describing THROTTLEBODYs momentum, The Detroit Free Press says, Shedding the old outfits pop persona to attack a much heavier rock sound, the group is quickly taking its place amongst Detroit..s heavy hitters. The result is a streamlined and potent collection of songs that are both punishing and infectious.

THROTTLEBODY is already making noise in Detroit area. The band..s live draw is huge! Building upon the consistent fan base that has been created over the years by the band members collective reputation for delivering the goods. The debut album is NOW available.
