Biography

The Asphalt are a rock band hailing from the searing deserts of Arizona. Sounding like the bastard child of Face to Face and The Foo Fighters, members Randy Mazick, Jon Stutler, Nick Turner and Jason Marino blend rock guitars, pounding drums, smooth bass and scathing vocals with a high-energy live performance that has captivated thousands of fans.

After locking themselves into world renowned NRG studios in Hollywood, CA with Grammy nominated engineer Jeremy Parker (Evanescence, Boy Sets Fire, Mudvayne) in the producer's chair the band created an EP that quickly reached the 75,000 hit mark on the original mp3.com before the websites untimely demise.

They have also recently released a broadcast quality music video for their newest single "Tonight." Shot in Hi-Definition on location in Tucson, Arizona and Old Tucson studios where films such as Tombstone, The Three Amigos, Death Wish and The Quick & The Dead were famously shot, the video borrows from the old west but has a decidedly modern feel.

The band were also invited to showcase at the world-renowned South By Southwest music festival for Captiva Records in Austin, Texas in both 2006 and 2007 where they performed for near-capacity crowds and had great reactions to their live show.
