Biography

Driven by their love for music and passion for self-expression, Matt Ross and Billy Jungfer started Sudzert early in 1997. Shortly after, the guitarists found themselves settling in with drummer Ryan Celestino. Then, at only 12 years old, Matt penned their first single Wait, which was recorded that year at Jerk Records Studio in Middletown NJ. Within a month of release, that single had risen to the Top Ten status on MP3.com - NJ Rock charts. The first couple years were filled with appearances at NJ favorites like The Saint and Hooligans. The three-piece advanced to the semi-finals in the Jersey Shows Battle of the Bands, gaining them the respect of many local bar owners. In 1999, Sudzert recorded their first EP, entitled The Know How. Filled with four tracks of guitar driven rock, The Know How sold extremely well and supported the bands growing fan-base. As their popularity grew, the band picked up local guitarist Mike Williams. With the addition of Mike, the band hit the studio once again and tracked 2 songs: Last Time and Absence. This demo put Sudzert on the map as a local rock powerhouse. This demo brought them to the next level and placed them in huge concerts opening for bands like SR-71, Soulfly, and many others. In the summer of 2003, Kevin Conroy joined the group as the new drummer. Kevin, formerly of the NJ based band, Knocked Conscious, came on board just in time to start the group's first full-length release. In October of that year, the band began a 7-month process under the management of Darren and Justin LeBlanc. The production of Where Do I Turn culminated with its release on June 9, 2004. Initial response to the record is startling. Radio play has increased dramatically and demand for the group is quickly rising. In 2005, Sudzert had added two new members to the band, Tommy Garcia and Jonathan Reyes. Tommy, aslo formerly of the NJ based band, Knocked Conscious, added a new dynamic to the band. Jonathan Reyes, a well respected Dj/Producer, was invited into the band after Sudzert recorded a demo track, I'm All Gone. Jonathan was also featured on Where Do I Turn. With passionate vocals and driving rock riffs, Sudzert has defined their niche and is actively pursuing a full-time career. Their intense performance and melodic rock songs are capturing more and more fans each day.

Bands Sudzert has Played with:
Sr-71, Badfish, Fistful of Steel, Soulfly, Sworn Enemy, E-town Concrete, the Blue Van, the Youth Ahead, Unearth, Runaway Orange, Green Day (Kevin played drums for a song), Borialis, Blessed Union of Souls; etc.

Lyrics

Last Time

Written By: Matt Ross

And I need this now,
For the last time again,
And I will not live,
In the past times.
But I miss you more,
More than anything before,
And I need that, yes I need that,
Oh I need that.

And I need this now,
For the last time,
I won't find another way to forget,
All the past times,
I won't even bother.

And I need this now,
For the last time again,
And I will not live,
In the past times again.
But I miss you more,
More than anything before,
And I need that, yes I need that,
Oh I need that.

And I need this now,
For the last time,
I won't find another way to forget,
All the past times,
I won't even bother.
This will come,
for the last time again,
And I need that, yes I need that,
Oh I need that.

Live Like This

Written By: Matt Ross

I don't think about you,
But I know you think about me,
I don't want to be all of this,
I don't want to be anything.

Anything, anything.

I'm living here without you,
I don't want to live here without you.
I'm living here without you,
I don't want to live, no.

I don't care that you,
Want to go and be with them,
I don't want to be all of this,
I don't want to be anything.

Anything, anything.

I'm living here without you,
I don't want to live here without you.
I'm living here without you,
I don't want to live, no.

Unsung Heart

Written By: Matt Ross

Lifeless breath, plastered faces
An unsung widows heart speaks
I am all alone she whispered
God please come and save me.

Waiting for certain reason
Stuck beside your uncompanion
Stare into my dark eyes
You're driving me to sacrafice.

You were gone in an instant
Now I'm lost in emptiness
Take me now out of life
Before it's put into my own hands.

Looking ahead into light
I am but a fading shadow
Will you all remember me
Or move on by tomorrow.

You were gone in an instant
Now I'm lost in emptiness
Take me now out of life
Before it's put into my own hands.
You were gone in an instant
Now I'm lost in emptiness
Take me now out of life
Before it's put into my own hands.

Why can't you just give me comfort
I just want to start this all over.
Why can't you just give me comfort
I just want to start this all over.

You were gone in an instant
Now I'm lost in emptiness
Take me now out of life
Before it's put into my own hands.
You were gone in an instant
Now I'm lost in emptiness
Take me now out of life
Before it's put into my own hands.
