The End Men
Annihilating stages from Bushwick to Berlin since 2010. A captivating combination of monster riffs, utterly unique drumming and sideshow abandon.

The End Men were created in 2010 as a three piece, losing a member in 2011 and remaining a two-piece to this day. Composed of Matthew Hendershot (guitar and vocals) and Livia Ranalli (drums, percussion and vocals), the average listener would be surprised to find that the powerful sound The End Men project is only coming from two people. With the raw, rasp-soaked vocals and the guitar-split to give the illusion of a bass, along with the rock solid drum pocket peppered with found percussive elements, the band rides a wave of dirty blues rock and vaudevillian stomp.

In a few short years, The End Men have carved out a name for themselves in their home base of NYC, and drop jaws and turn heads with every show they perform. The live experience harkens back to a smokey sideshow tucked away on the bayou; captivating and eccentric in it's intensity. They have toured extensively since the band's beginnings, traveling as far south as Nashville and all the way to Chicago and Kansas in the west. Also, they have toured Europe, with plans to return in 2013, covering Belgium, Italy, Germany and The Netherlands, where they opened for Genital Hospital. They have played in many notable clubs such as Arlene's Grocery, Piano's and Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, and Glasslands in Brooklyn. The End Men have appeared multiple times at the Utica Music Festival in Utica NY, and twice at the Brooklyn Infringement Festival, playing a headlining spot in 2013.

In 2011 they released their first album 'Build it Up' and in 2013 they released their follow up 'Play With Your Toys', releasing singles in the meantime, one of note was produced in Dubway Studios in Manhattan for the Songcraft Series. Matthew is currently endorsed by Howling Monkey Handmade Guitar Picks, and Livia was profiled in Tom Tom Magazine last year for her stellar drum chops. The End Men have played with a variety of acts ranging from jazz to metal, but the constant is the undeniable energy and showmanship they extrude with every live performance, no matter the venue or the bill. In late 2012, they joined a musical collective, Built4BBQ, a veritable commune of bands from Upstate NY and beyond working to get their music to the masses.
The Monolithic
The Monolithic is an original five-piece rock band comprised of a like-minded collective inspired by the raw and gritty purity of rock music from the 60's and early 70's.
