Fresh from their appearance on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour and their recent gig supporting Breaking Benjamin at House of Blues Atlantic City, Transfusion M joins Valient Thorr, Matchbook Romance and more at the Sherman Theater, 524 Main Street, Stroudsburg, PA on Saturday, October 14, 2006.
Transfusion M is Michael Ferentino, Kristjan Karu, Todd Giblin, Jay Marshall, and Amy Ferentino.
Lead singer Michael Ferentino is full of praise for his tourmates. “At a time when it seems the greatest inspiration for modern rock music comes from the past, when music was made for more than just to line the pockets of ‘creativeless’ industry executives who treat music like canned corn and textiles, it's an honor for me to share the stage with Valient Thorr. They are one of the few honest and interesting American rock bands in the 21st century.”
Giblin adds, “I'm excited to be playing on the same bill with some bands we made friends with on this years Warped Tour. Valient Thorr has become one of my favorite bands to see live!”
Freddie Fabbri, tour manager for Breaking Benjamin, raves about Transfusion M’s strength as entertainers. “Seeing Transfusion M is like taking a psycho-glam carnival ride,” he enthuses. “Their song ’Murder, Sex, Medication is a lasso that catches, bounds and gags an audience’s attention to the point they’re numb with disbelief, and their version of T-Rex’s ‘The Slider/Rabbit Fighter’ could only be played better by Marc Bolan himself!”
Transfusion M’s debut album Suck Century was recorded at The Barber Shop Studios in Hopatcong, New Jersey, with producers Jason Corsaro (Peter Gabriel, Madonna, Clutch, Steve Winwood, Duran Duran) and Tony Fortuna heading the project. Breaking Benjamin also chose The Barber Shop for the recording of their new CD Phobia, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard album charts, selling 125,000 copies in its first week.
Transfusion M is the first signing to fledgling label Dream Makers Music. Dream Makers defines a new paradigm for the recording industry, priding themselves by being an artist-oriented label. Through their website, Dreammakersmp3.com, all artists have an opportunity to be heard by listeners from around the world.
The first single from Transfusion M’s Suck Century is “Criminal,” a tune Mr. Ferentino says, “was born of my guilt and sexual frustration after dating a beautiful, young, Born-Again Christian girl, who attempted to keep her virtue intact while I repeatedly tried to unravel it with my own hedonistic views.” “Criminal” is at Alternative and Rock radio now.
