Biography

Los Gatos, California, USA (1993 – present)

dredg is a band from Los Gatos, California, USA formed in 1993. Their first studio album, Leitmotif, was released by the Universal music label on September 11, 2001. Prior to that, it had been self-released by the members of the band. After the album hit music stores, Dredg acquired an almost immediate cult following thanks to Leitmotif’s unique sound and concept. There has also been a movie planned for release as a music video for the entire album, though the project has been scrapped due to the death of the lead actor. El Cielo, Dredg’s proper Interscope debut, arrived in autumn 2002, and Deftones producer Terry Date was at the helm for their 2005 effort Catch Without Arms. A video for the single “Bug Eyes” was released. In the spring of 2006, Dredg played on the Taste of Chaos tour. In November of 2006, Dredg released “Live at the Fillmore.”

Industry Demos is a collection of four songs from 2001 that Dredg recorded before they were signed to impress record labels. The four songs are “Of the Room”, “Redrawing the Island Map”, “Running Through Propellers”, and “The Papal Insignia.” Despite the fact that the band has not spoke out about these songs, and has not played them as of late (although “Propellers” has made an appearance on setlists prior to the release of CWOA), these songs remain very popular with fans. Of the Room was rerecorded and released on Dredg’s second album El Cielo.

    Strongly disagree. Catch Without Arms is nowhere close Leitmotif and El Cielo as a whole, but there's some really good tracks on it, namely Sang Real, which I think is one of their best. I don't like Pariah much but there's some good songs on that too

    the thought of losing dredg is not an option. wait, actually it is if it means more of Chuckles. honestly with the exception of Leitmotif and El Cielo, dredg has never really made anything great

    "Hoping that the next record is like a continuation of Chuckles, just because the fanbase's reaction would be priceless." If the rest of the fanbase think as I do then the reaction would be something like: "OK dredg, I get it. You want me to never care about what you release again. See you!"
