History
MADSUMO STARTED WHEN DAVE, T. AND PAULLY WORKED TOGETHER BACK IN 2002. THEY JAMMED A LOT TOGETHER, BUT NEVER TOOK IT TOO SERIOUS UNTIL DAVE'S BAND ELBOW DEEP BROKE UP, AND T. LEFT FORMER BAND ENTER-EDEN BECAUSE HE NEEDED TO STRETCH HIS CREATIVE SIDE PLAYING GUITAR RATHER THAN BASS. SO IT WAS ABOUT TIME TO FORM A BAND. DEDICATED ABOUT PLAYING, THE THREE RENTED A JAM ROOM WITHOUT A DRUMMER, AND STARTED TO COMPOSE MUSIC TOGETHER. AFTER PLAYING WITH SEVERAL DRUMMERS, AND A COUPLE OPEN JAMS, THE BAND STILL NEEDED TIME DISCOVERING THE 'RIGHT' DRUMMER. THERE EXPERIENCE WITH DIFFERENT DRUMMERS, GAVE THEM A TASTE OF THE MANY STYLES AND PERSONALITIES OUT THERE. SAM CAME ABOARD EARLY 2004, AND DELIVERED EVERYTHING MADSUMO WAS LOOKING FOR.
CURRENTLY, THE SUMO IS WORKING CLOSELY WITH GRUV RECORDS, AND WILL SOON BE IN THE STUDIO WORKING ON A DEMO, AND PRESS PACK. THEY PLAN ON PLAYING ALL OVER WESTERN NY 2004! OUR MISSION IS TO PRODUCE GREAT MUSIC AND TO ENTERTAIN. SPREAD THE WORD.... THE SUMO IS MAD AND GOING TO EXPLODE!!
