But just like all great theories, they can be made better with revisions. Enter Nathan Sorg. Brandon and Alan recorded their Contact List EP with engineer David Picciuto in the summer of 2010. During the recording process, TeamNate discovered Nathan performing with the now defunct Sinker as extra hands, vocals and light tech. His performance impressed Brandon so much that the two began to form a side project.
It was not until later TeamNate discovered that they had actually opened for Nathan’s (as the front man) band Extra!Extra! the year before and were all too familiar with him. The side project, named STROBES, was soon put on hold due to the realization that Nathan could be the missing link they never knew they needed. He joined the TeamNate at the end of summer 2010 and the duo, now made trio, are even more of a force to be reckoned with. TeamNate plans to play out Contact List EP until the end of the year and start writing and recording for a full length during the early months of 2011. We get a lot of questions about the name of our band.. So here it is. Teamnate derived from our friend Nathan Buker’s (Note: not Nathan Sorg) idea of a perfect community he plans to build when he’s a billionaire.
It involves an island and a barter system and all the lovely things we like to put in our versions of a perfect world such as; ice cream fountains, beer slides, etc etc. The name is also a play on the word teammate because they’re so close together in spelling. Fun fact: If you take out the vowels in Teamnate, you’re left with TMNT. Neato.
