Biography

Based in Toronto, Canada, RAGGEDY ANGRY plays a fusion of sounds ranging from synth-pop, alternative rock, punk and metal all blended into one slickly produced package.

The band started in 2006 as Irvin Scabtree and Pressit at the age of only 17, released a 12 song debut record entitled Take Me, Break Me, Make Me Pretty. The album set the tone for things to come with a monstrous electro-rock sound featuring Pressit’s chunky guitar riffs complemented by Scabtree’s propensity for electronic hooks.

2008 saw the band fill out with drummer, The Pull-Out Method, lead guitarist Uncle Daddy, and bassist C-Man being added to the fold. The newly minted quintet’s sound took on a more aggressive feel while maintaining a nerd-pop electronic resonance. The new outfit caught the interest of famed producer Dave Ogilvie (NIN, Marilyn Manson, Skinny Puppy) who was a perfect match for the band. After two long months in the studio, Raggedy Angry completed their highly anticipated second record Pestilence. Following the release of Pestilence, the boys caught the attention of fellow Toronto based band The Birthday Massacre and were asked to support them on their European tour in the spring of 2009. The tour hit up all the major markets and provided the band with a strong foothold with fans and critics alike across the Atlantic. In the fall of 2009 the band was again asked out on tour, this time for a national tour supporting Die Mannequin across Canada.

    The new album (although it's more of a mini-album) is a bit different from their previous album, but it has some excellent tracks!

    Saw them supporting TBM in London. Gave an amazing performance, the music was great and I loved the jumpsuits. I hadn't really listened to Raggedy Angry much before, but I was so overwhelmed by the awesome on Wednesday that they're now one of my favourite bands.

    Hey guys... figured I'd mention I cut in "Chest Pains" into a DJMix.net guest spot thing I did: http://djmix.net/DJMixPresents/PyraDraculea-Jan222010 Oh, and some of the dick jokes from the interview were perfect to place around RevCo's "I'm Not Gay" and Rammstein's "Pussy." I mean, how could I not? ;)
