After playing together off and on since 1998, in 2010 Matt McGuirk and Kevin Tulppo decided to hit the road as a two-piece instrumental band. After over a year playing a bunch of shows with punk and metal bands in Michigan towns like Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor, Saginaw, and Lansing, they decided that it was time to find a bass player and a vocalist.
Vocalist Trish Kane joined the band in early 2012, bringing a versatility, intensity, and dynamic presence that has proved to be a perfect fit for Mare Crisium.
Mare Crisium has yet to find a human bass player. (But that's OK. They make machines for that now.)
