NETHERLANDS were formed in 2008 in NYC by Timo Ellis (guitar, vocals) with Ava Farber (synthbass) and Joel Willis (drums)

Lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Timo Ellis is from NYC. He's recorded and played with Yoko Ono, Cibo Matto, John Zorn, Melvins, Gibby Haynes, Ween, Joan As Police Woman, Spacehog, and White Hills among many others, as well as put out over 25 musically widely varied solo albums as TE and under several other pseudonyms.

NETHERLANDS rejects restraint in favor of maximum impact: shredding chops, soaring vocals, and maddening hooks. Following Ellis' mission statement of making music that is equally "light-hearted, brutal, ecstatic", Netherlands crushes decades' worth of bombast into psychotropic nuggets of evil rock bliss. With nods to the dirtbag rituals of 70s heavy metal, the grandeur of 80s arena rock, and the crunch of 90s post-hardcore.

The members of Clamfight are four childhood friends turned grown-ass men who are almost as committed to big riffs as they are to each other. Influenced in equal parts by their dads' vinyl, that sketchy older kid from woodshop class' thrash and hardcore tapes as well as touchstone heavy bands like Sleep, Clutch, Neurosis, eyehategod and Mastodon, the band has plied its unique brand of suburban working slob metal up and down the East Coast of the United States since 2005. Having issued a debut album, Vol. I, in 2010, and a second album, I vs. the Glacier, in 2013, the quartet is now hard at work on a third record, and these four riff enthusiasts are looking forward to injuring their backs on the road shortly after its completion.
