Vin Alfieri (Guitarist/Founder) – “This has been my main project for a handful
of years. I also write and produce music for film and television – with many
published songs in films such as Daredevil, Ghost Rider, American Pie Series, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, Final Destination 4, Jumper, Alvin and the Chipmunks (performed all the music and wrote considerable amount), which went platinum in the US and soundtrack also won an American Music Award
last year. Currently just finished Alvin sequel and full soundtrack which will be released worldwide via Warner Brothers”.
THE SMASHUP have had tracks on the movies Saw 3, Masters of Horror and Feast as well on tracks on ‘The Best Of Taste of Chaos Volumes 1 & 2’.
Additionally, Sean Cuthbert (Vocals) previously performed in the bands The Resurrection and Year of Confession – both bands performed shows with Unearth, All That Remains, Shai Halud, Trivium, The Sleeping and It Dies Today.
THE SMASHUP’s ‘The Sea and The Serpents Beneath’ is based around the concept of an epic sea journey gone astray with video rotation on FUSEtv and MTV2. Produced & mixed by Andrew Schneider (Pelican, Cave In, The Ocean)
at New York’s Translator Audio Studios, Brooklyn.
They draw influence from Trail of the Dead, Nine Inch Nails, Dillinger Escape Plan, Underoath, Moneen and of course some older influences such as Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Black Flag, Faith No More & Incubus.
THE SMASHUP toured the UK when they released “Untreatable” on Mighty
Atom Records a few years back and were well received. The band really love
to perform, and are planning on doing as much as they can overseas with their energetic stage performance that always has people talking after shows.
The new album, ‘The Sea and The Serpents Beneath’ is out now on Glasstone Records.
