Bound By Substance
Bound By Substance, Rusted Time
The boys from Queens include Henry Rzonca (lead vocals, piano, keyboard), Paul Mendez (lead guitar), Dino Colacito (rhythm guitar, lyrics), Angelo Marino (bass), and Matt Farina (drums). All lyrics by Dino Colacito; all music by Bound By Substance (BBS.)
Their site puts it best: "Farina and Marino bring solid rhythmic movements and distinctive bass lines; Colacito builds complex moods by combining the two elements of tranquilizing arpeggios and aggressive riffs. To complete BBS's soundscape, Rzonca adds a few more layers of colors with his soothing vocals and bright piano/organ melodies."
The band is active in the New York City club scene, where they can be seen at The Bitter End. They have also played CBGB's, The Continental, Don Hills, Webster Hall, Orange Bear, 169 Bar, The Knitting Factory, the Pussy Cat Lounge, and Kenny's Castaways. They have traveled some for gigs in Jersey, Long Island, and only as far as Washington, DC.
BBS advanced to the national finals of the Emergenza BOTB, and will be playing at Webster Hall in NYC for July 7th. BBS placed in the top 10 twice over the summer of 2006 in two Battle of the Bands competitions.
Richie Cannata, sax player for Billy Joel among others, worked with BBS on the Rusted Time CD. The band also worked personally with Tom Brick at Absolute Audio while mastering their EP.
The CD includes these tracks:
