Fleshsuit / Bio

FLESHSUIT started creating their brand of heavy, melodic, groove a little over 9 years ago. In late 2001, guitarist Dan Mitscher and vocalist Ryan Noblitt met through a mutual friend, who gave Ryan an audition CD with the preface “Man, I know this band, and you are the PERFECT singer for them!!!!” 2 days and 2 minutes into the audition later, the core of FLESHSUIT was born. FLESHSUIT played a ton of shows over the next few years, switching members occasionally and searching for the right combination, releasing one self recorded, produced and released CD in the meantime. Fast-forward to late 2005, and FLESHSUIT had solidified their line-up: Ryan Noblitt on vocals and guitars, Dan Mitscher on guitars and guitar-synth, Scott Ballenger on guitar, Breck Hardcastle on bass, and Kevin McBride on drums . After the line-up was established, the band played live as often as possible, in the process taking a trek to play at the infamous Whisky a Go-Go in L.A. and sharing the stage with countless bands of all genres all over the Midwest , Michigan ,Chicago ,L.A.….anywhere available in an effort to bring the FLESHSUIT music to the people, where it was EXTREMEMLY well received. FLESHSUIT released the self-recorded, produced, mastered and distributed full-length C.D. “PERFECT” in May of 2009 to INCREDIBLE response ,with tracks ranging from brutal intensity, like “INVISIBLE” to psychedelic, like the track “BEAUTIFUL” to melodic and moody self-exploration, like the track “COUNTING DOWN”. The band blended flavors from the last 20 years of Metal with hints and colors of Blues, Southern Rock, Jazz, Electronica, and Spoken Word, utilizing a twisted attack and vocals ranging from the softest whispers to the rawest screams, gut wrenching heaviness and unbelievable melodic hooks to paint a soundscape for the audience to get lost in. After a final line-up change in early 2011,FLESHSUIT moved on as a 3-piece...The current line-up being,Ryan Nobliit,vocals and guitar,Breck Hardcastle-Bass,and Matt Dailey-drums. FLESHSUIT has just finished recording a new E.P., titled "INTERLUDE" The new E.P. is scheduled to be a 5 song collection of all new original material, as varied and explorative as its predecessor, and is scheduled for an April 21st 2012 release.,followed by the Full Length follow up to "PERFECT", titled "VIRUS",tentatively scheduled for a late Fall,2012 release. With this artillery of new material, FLESHSUIT eagerly anticipates more and more shows, touring, and a continual exploration of their music and interaction with their fans, affectionately dubbed the “FLESHSUIT Family" in 2012 and for years to come!!!!
