This is rock and roll for the thinking people of this post-industrial, pre-apocalyptic megalopolis. Brutal honesty, sharpened wits and visceral ingenuity. The salvos are intense and consistent; the message is clear Formed in late 95, the Tendril hierarchy consists of guitarist/vocalist Duane Deering, bassist/vocalist Darren Paul, guitarist Richie DeMeglio, and drummer Tony Wann. Tendrils early years of Rock & Roll R&D have earned the band experience, a loyal following, a handful of early recordings (all of which have received airplay in varying fashion), and significant soundtrack contributions for both TV and independent film.
Additionally, Tendril has shared the stage with such bands as P.O.D., Mike Watt, The Toadies, The Feds, Bowling For Soup, Red Animal War, Flickerstick, The Vanished, and The Paperchase. The bands most recent full-length, Anaphase, Baby!, quickly became a critical darling and cult favorite, winning over critics of all spectrums of the punk/metal/rock genres, with countless national publications universally praising this Monolithic slab of art-rock noise. (Fort Worth Star-Telegram) Fueled further by these successes and their surrounding tours and press, the Tendril machine continues to propel forward at full-force. Since 2003, the band has twice performed at the prestigious South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Headlined 2 midwest tours from Dallas to Detroit, seen six of its songs appear in broadcasts of Cartoon Networks Dragonball Z series, as well as the nationally distributed DVD movie Broly: The Legendary Super-Saiyan, all the while continuing to hone the skills and sharpen the tongue through show after show. Tendril is currently writing and recording demos for its next full-length release. Though already sitting on a veritable goldmine of all-new material, the band continues to polish and add to the repertoire, positioning itself on course to annihilate its previous critically-acclaimed offerings, preparing to knock the next one even further out of the ballpark.
