Litter / Bio

Litter, originally a two person studio band, is a mix of Thrash Metal, Punk, Science and Beer that began as 'Clitty Litter' back in 2001, but shortened their name to Litter at the release of 'Letting Yourself Go' their first album in 2003. Some songs were written in a semi-humerus manner and meant to have a comical side, but still fast and heavy at the same time. Think about what a heavier version of Ween would sound like.
After a short tour, in which they played 0 shows in all, the duo began work on new material. In 2005, the release of their second album, "Short Stories' brought on more depth and meaning with songs like 'Freedom And Death', and 'Distant', while maintaining their humerus side with songs like 'I Hate Bees', and 'Dirty Cooter.'
Although Litter began writing material shortly thereafter, it would be another six years before the next album was released, as the two members dealt with some life. Eventually, 2011 would bring the release of the not so much anticipated 'Wake Up and Smell The Reality', where Litter continued their descent into deeper meaning songs such as 'Poor Me A Good Time' a song about not being pressured by your choices, ' Blinded By The Bible' a song that dealt with religious extremists role in terrorism, and 'Independence Day' a song about the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Litter seemed to be drifting further away from their semi-humerus punk roots, but did manage to hang on to some of it with 'Confessions Of Dumbness' the title speaks for itself, and the infamous 'Birds', arguably a fan favorite.
Litter began work on their fourth album 'Let There Be Light' in early 2013, and it was completed in February, 2014 with a CD release date tagged for April 20. Litter maintained its drive into science and realism further by writing songs about the myth of karma (A Mark For Karma), the politics of the tea party (March Of Clowns), the concept of the big bang theory (Rapid Astronomical Process), and the common worry about what happens after we are gone (Just Live), to name a few, but refuses to completely let go of their semi-humerus side, see the song called 'Pi' a song with numbers instead of words.
Currently the duo is working on forming a band with the aspirations of playing a couple live shows for starters. Mike is now the drummer, in fact, he is the first drummer, ever, eleven years after the first disc was released. The band will be looking at bassists in the coming weeks, and possibly another guitarist.
All in all, if your into science, reality, metal, and being dumb, you will like Litter.
