Fort Worth TX, United States (1989 – 2002, 2006 – present)

Toadies are an alternative rock band from Fort Worth, Texas. The band’s best known lineup consisted of Vaden Todd Lewis (guitar, vocals) Mark Reznicek (drums), Lisa Umbarger (bass), and Clark Vogeler (guitar). When the band reformed in 2006, Umbarger amicably declined to participate and has been replaced by Doni Blair. They are best known for the hit single “Possum Kingdom,” from their album Rubberneck. This song was named after Possum Kingdom State Park, in Palo Pinto County, Texas.

The band formed in 1989. Toadies officially disbanded in 2001, although they had farewell concerts in 2002. The band reformed for a reunion show on March 11, 2006, headlining the Greenville Ave St. Patrick’s Day parade concert.

Toadies toured extensively throughout the 19, opening for such artists as Red Hot Chili Peppers, White Zombie, Bush, and The Butthole Surfers. They also headlined and co-headlined tours with acts such as Brutal Juice, Baboon, Supersuckers, and The Reverend Horton Heat.

The primary reason for the breakup of the band was that Lisa Umbarger simply did not want to be a part of it anymore, and bandleader Todd Lewis felt that the band could not continue without her.

Since disbanding, members of the band have gone on to other projects. Todd Lewis is now in The Burden Brothers and Mark Reznicek is now in Eleven Hundred Springs.

    Hell Bellow/Stars Above is a fantastic album. Far better than "Rubberneck" IMO.

    Never gave Toadies that much a listen before, but hearing the entire Hell Bellow/Stars Above album today... I'm really impressed. Glad I can across this disc in a friends stash. Ripping it to my computer now and can't wait to listen to it again. Every song is very very decent. The sound is bad ass. Very well engineered and produced.

    Jesus, man. Not a lot of action on this shoutbox. I never really understood why Toadies were widely-regarded as a one-hit wonder. 90% of their material is fantastic. I liked the new album (Play.Rock.Music), but I don't really agree with the others saying that it sounded more "Toadies" than No Deliverance. A few songs in particular absolutely did not - and that's not a bad thing, bands have to evolve. PS - Seeing Mark Reznicek in the Letters page of Amazing Spider-Man a few issues back was a hilarious, awesome surprise.

    The new album actually sounds like a Toadies album. Much better than No Deliverance. [2]
