the frenzy of tongs was formed many years ago in Providence, RI by members of various other completely failed punk or *ahem* metal bands. After playing for a while as the short drop method(UK) to crowds as large as 6 or 7, they lost their first singer to what some may creatively call “creative differences” and changed their name to the frenzy of tongs.

They have somehow managed to share stages with some of the biggest names from the Providence, Boston, New York City and Manchester, New Hampshire including the F.I.D.s, Neutral Nation, the Smashed, Subsystem, the No It Alls, Sons of Frankenstein, Almost Blind, Refuse Resist, Snubby, the Agents, WWIX, the Nice Ups, Smithfield & the Peats, Flatout Jones, Superpower, Meatsaw, the Revilers, the Usual Suspects, The McGunks, For What It’s Worth, The Doll Eyes, Chris Evil & the Taints, Eddie & the Louvers, The Cobra Skulls, Big city bombers, the Rhythm Whores, Gash Station, the Trashkillers, six star general, 8 Hour Waste,Brunt of It, the diePods, TSR, and Acetone, among others… Along the way they’ve had songs featured on an Adrenalin Crew DVD and several compilations that had extra space to fill. They have also become a regular attraction at an annual punk rock fundraiser, Punks For A Princess.

Always putting on an energetic show, crowds have swelled at times to 30 or more, but controversy has plagued the band at certain area venues as overzealous”fans” have been known assault the band with Chinese food during performances of their mega-hit ”#1 Buffet”.

After years of failed attempts they finally managed to record an album appropriately called The Piper at the Gates of Dumb in 2010. They didn’t get it out until 2011. It’s sort of good.
