Biography

Throw The Temple's current lineup of Gabe Gambino, Matt Garcia, Kent Sidlow, and Kody Audette is a hard hitting slab of groove that promises to keep you movin' all night long.

Throw the Temple hit Albuquerque's scene in January 2011 with Gabe Gambino, Matt Garcia, Jeremy Metcalf, and Joey Diaz and a vocalist. Playing a few shows in the span of January to April, they started building a name until June 2011, where the band parted ways with their vocalist, citing professional and personal reasons.

Since then, a new era of Throw The Temple was born, with Gabe Gambino taking vocals and rhythm guitar duties and Matt taking background vocals and focusing on lead guitars.

2011 was a great year of building an audience and making a name for TTT, but 2012 has been even faster and harder than 2011. In March, after a show with LA standouts Attaloss in El Paso, TX, TTT was invited to play the 13th Annual Heart of Texas Rockfest during South by Southwest week in Austin Texas. Throw The Temple was the only band from Albuquerque to play the festival.

Since they've begun, they have played shows with notable locals Epiphany, SuperGiant, Brave New World, and Indemnified. They've also played with such national acts as Warner Drive, Attaloss, ACIDIC, LA Velvet, Hessler, New Liberty, and even hip-hop legends Mobb Deep and Raekwon. While they're proud of what they've accomplished, the hard work will not be stopping as Throw The Temple continues to grow.

Throw The Temple's debut demo was released on April 27, 2012. Along with that, Throw The Temple was voted into 104.1 The Edge's EdgeFest, a festival headlined by Incubus, Cage the Elephant, AWOLNATION, Anberlin and more. 2012 has been good to Throw The Temple, but we are planning on keeping it up. Later in 2012, TTT was nominated for the first ever Edgy Award for Albuquerque's Best Local Band.

In 2013, Throw The Temple was voted in to play Edgefest again, headlining the local stage. The festival included Bad Religion, Cake, and the Killers. Late 2013 saw TTT hitting the road, playing in Colorado Springs, Colorado and being a part of some big local shows with heavy hitters like BlindDryve

2014 has been a great year for Throw The Temple. With more out of state dates, TTT introduced themselves to Pueblo, Colorado and were on the Mile High FestiBOWL in Denver, Colorado. In May, TTT was selected to open for national act and heavy hitting Chicago band Local H of 90s fame. In June 2014, Throw The Temple won a lone spot on the Kevin Says Stage at Albuquerque's first hosting of the Vans Warped Tour, sharing the stage with State Champs, Icon for Hire, and old friends ACIDIC. 2014 is also the year that the band started production of their debut full-length album. The first single, "Searching for the Unknown", is completed and can be found on ReverbNation.com/throwthetemple.

2015 has brought Throw The Temple a new drummer in Kent Sidlow, the young and talented drummer of the Albuquerque-based rock band Zealous Grooves. Throw The Temple's debut album will be expected to be released in the spring of 2015.
