(1)The Generals were deployed in the summer of 2005 by longtime Sacramento, California music vets Matt Sertich (vocals, guitars, piano) and Kirk Janowiak (drums, programming, keyboards, backing vocals). Following the disbandment of the musicians’ former endeavors, Zero to Heaven and Pocket Change, The Generals were born in Janowiak’s kitchen as a studio project.

The result, a guerrilla-style series of early recordings that employed a synthesizer, a laptop, recorded keyboard and temporary drum tracks which eventually led to a five-song demo entitled Trains at the end of 2005. At this point The Generals felt another member was needed in order to perform live so they recruited the bass playing skills of Blane Barker. With Blane in place, The Generals recorded and released their first official album, Save Me in 2007. After several years spent performing throughout Sacramento and along the West Coast, Blane parted ways leaving The Generals to soldier on as a 2 piece once again. Only this time around they had felt they didn’t need to find another bass player. The Generals recently released their first full-length CD, a self-titled album The Generals recorded with Joe Johnston (Deftones, Cake).
