Bio

From the depths of loneliness and disappointment comes RID OF ME, a band determined to succeed. Without any thought of fitting into a specific style, RID OF ME uses an array of influences to create their own coherent sound. Michael Mercy is able to take Punk Rock and give it a song writer's touch, much like Elvis Costello and The Clash. Significant lyrics and solid arrangements is just the start. The amount of energy that is produced by the bands rhythm section is profound. When describing Matt Olleys drumming, using the word energetic would be an understatement. Shawn Problems clever Jazz influenced bass lines walk each song to a new level. Gluing everything together is Dave A.A., who can be heard locking in with the snare on 2 and 4 or down strumming like Johnny Ramone. For the past year RID OF ME has been very busy. They are constantly performing at premier clubs in New York City such as, CBGB, Arlene's Grocery, and the Continental. Recently the band opened for Rock N Roll hall of famer Marky Ramone. Their music has been featured on the Somewhere Between Motocross DVD along side bands like Brand New, Head Automatica and the Bouncing Souls. College radio air play, touring and the internet have helped the band attract a large number of fans. Over 2,700 of which can be found at www.myspace.com/ridofme. RID OF ME will continue to push forward and gain as many new fans as possible. This shouldn't be too difficult. What RID OF ME has to offer is extremely hard to ignore.
