AboutÂ THE CLAY PEOPLE:
The Clay PeopleÂ have been a powerful presence in the American Hard Rock Metal Punk scene for over two decades. The band has nurtured their kinetic, crafty narrativeâa constructed evolutionâdrawing from the roots of early heavy-rock metal-punk scenes, while pushing boundaries and bending contemporary genres to achieve their distinguishable sound.
The highly-anticipated albumÂ Cult HypnoticaÂ will top offÂ The Clay Peopleâs discography in the summer of 2022. This record was recorded during the first 2 years of the pandemic and is the first release of a tracked 40-song library produced during this period of chaotic global unrest. Inspired by truth and awareness, the band delved into the onslaught of misinformed media, religion misinformation, the corruption of political agents, and the use of technology to control human behavior and societal control.
Their live shows are always a visual and musical display of artistic intensity and prowessânoted readily by their rabid fan base which grows steadily asÂ The Clay PeopleÂ continue to produce groundbreaking projects with creative fervor. The band has shared the stage with such acts as Disturbed, Stained, Clutch, Rob Zombie, Static X, Stabbing Westward, Filter and many more. From modest beginnings in the underground Industrial Darkwave scene, to the breakout release of their 1998 self-titled album on SlipDisc/Mercury records, this New York band has forcefully and expertly delivered an accomplished and ever-evolving canon of sound. The furiously propulsive lead singleÂ âAwakeâÂ climbed the radio Billboard charts to launch the band as an international touring act. The song also appears on the soundtrack for American horror flickÂ âStrangelandâÂ with other acts like Marilyn Manson, System of a Down, and Anthrax. In 2018,Â The Clay PeopleÂ releasedÂ Demon HeroÂ with Overit. The singleÂ âColossus,âÂ inspired a comic book,Â âThe Clay People: Colossusâ, from Top Cow Productions and Ep1t0me Studios in March of 2022, placingÂ The Clay PeopleÂ on a very short list of rock bands to have an internationally-released comic feature their work. The book boasts a dark and grisly story by comic legendÂ Matt HawkinsÂ (Image Comics) and unparalleled art byÂ Christian DibariÂ (âDeadpoolâ). Born from the unique creative bond ofÂ Daniel Dinsmore,Â Brian McGarvey, andÂ Daniel Neet, the band has grown to include guitaristÂ Jared WeedÂ and bass playerÂ Eric Braymer.
