Assassinate the Scientist Bio:
Assassinate the Scientist are loud, fast and fun. These three gentlemen who have been kicking around the scene in Gainesville, Florida for a decade or more decided to start this new more motivated project in February of 2008. Their sound is nothing if not eclectic. With influences ranging from A Wilhelm Scream, Osker, Clutch and Strikeforce Diablo one could imagine that the band lacked direction. However, this melting pot of sounds has created a cohesive and dynamic band that is both furious and catchy. While their time together has been relatively short, they've already managed to release a full-length on up-and-coming Gainesville label Fail-Safe Records called "Naked Bingo 5 on the Moon." Things are moving quickly for the band, much faster than they might have even imagined. Within their first year as a band they managed to secure spots on both The Fest in Gainesville and Harvest of Hope Festival in St. Augustine. They've also managed to share the stage with the likes of Voodoo Glow Skulls and the Flaming Tsunamis. Their new EP, recorded with Roger from notable Gainesville bands Less Than Jake and Rehasher, and mastered with Derron Nuhfer is the sound of three guys rediscovering their love for playing punk rock and wanting to have as much fun as possible in the process. Paper + Plastick heard the songs and decided we needed to bring them to the people. Expect the EP to be released digitally in May and plenty more to come in the future including tentative plans for an east coast tour with Spanish Gamble.
