Another Distraction / Bio

Another Distraction was formed in 2009 with the intention of being a cover band, but soon began combining all their influences to create originals that blended post-punk, alternative/grunge and hard rock. Four of the band's founding members and longtime friends - drummer Antonio Staropoli, guitarist Chris Fiduccia, guitarist Giuseppe DiSalvo and bassist John Frega, hail from the great state of New Jersey while the new comer and singer Chris Drako traveled all the way from Pennsylvania to join the band.

After the original vocalist Mario Enrique Vargas Jr. departed for personal reasons, the band struggled to find someone to fill his shoes. However, once Chris Drako was discovered and joined the band in late 2012, the momentum carried the band to new heights. With new material being written, local and out of state shows being booked, on air radio interviews and live radio sessions, Another Distraction began to establish a local presence for themselves. Their greatest achievement to date is the successful crowd funding campaign that allowed them to record and self-release their debut EP titled "Nothing Left to Say" which was recorded at Nada Recording by John Naclerio. The album is available now on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon.
