Moon Tooth began its journey at the end of 2012. Founding members Nick Lee and Ray
Marte‘s previous band had dissolved and they quickly found a musical and philosophical
kinship with singer John Carbone and bassist Vincent Romanelli. The band went
straight to work writing and constantly gigging. They broke 100 shows in their first year
with a relentless DIY ethos and quickly built a following with their intense and infamous
live performances.
In July of 2013 they released the ‘Freaks’ EP; four songs and 14 minutes of urgent,
frenetic energy. The EP was mixed and mastered by drummer Ray Marté at his own
Westfall Recording Company and proved the band as a force to be reckoned with as
both musicians and songwriters. The EP also won over attention from the metal press.
MetalSucks described the band at the time as “an undeniably strange, totally kick-ass
beast who don’t really fit into any one genre. Anyone whining about a lack of originality
in modern metal needs to check these cats out.”
The band went on to steadily tour and build their following throughout 2014. In 2015
they started to see the results of their hard work. They were asked that year to play both
the Metal Injection/MetalSucks CMJ showcase as well as their SXSW showcase. They
saw rotation of songs from their ‘Freaks’ EP on Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal with no label
or management behind them. The band also found themselves sharing stages with
bands as notable and diverse as Killswitch Engage, The Dillinger Escape Plan,
GWAR, Mutoid Man, Weedeater, Veil of Maya, Cancer Bats, KEN Mode, He Is
Legend, & King Parrot.
