Laughing with the Sinners
Hey what's up we're The Hellfish. We are a band that likes to play what we would call a combination of old and new rock n' roll. The Hellfish formed in January of 2009 as a result of Matt and Nick envying the rest of their friends' musical aspirations. Seeing how much fun it was to hang around and do nothing but drink beer and write songs, Nick picked up a guitar and let Matty's lifetime of drumming knowledge get them going in the right direction. Shortly after, they went to work recruiting their two good friends Rory and Liam, playing lead and bass respectively, to join the adventure. Together they found their second home at Roxy Sound Studios in Long Island City. There The Hellfish created just enough songs to fill out a set and shortly after hit the stage. We have been playing live shows in the New York area ever since. Over the summer of '09 we were invited out to Goin' Knowhere Fest in Grand Rapids Michigan to perform with various bands at the three day event. What a fun and interesting experience that was. In addition to that endeavour some of our other live accomplishments include playing at venues such as: The Upper East Side Music Festival at Bar East and Desmonds Tavern in NYC, as well as various spots on our home turf Long Island including Mr. Beery's, Sinclair's Pub and DJ Riders. Our first three recorded tracks were done at East Coast Recording with producer/engineer Chris Fasulo. After some slight shuffling of band members, we have added guitar hero Lou Fiore on lead to the mix. With this revamped lineup we have yet to lose a stride and we are currently working on new tracks with our friends from the band One Short Fall at their home studio The Rat House. Our band prides itself in creating unique songs that are catchy and appealing to a wide variety of listeners.
