Stab the Matador was formed in 2005 during their high school senior year by Luke Brandfon (Guitar), Graham Watson (Drums), Corey Cavagnolo (Vocals, Keyboard), and James DeVito (Bass). Jumpstarted with a clear ambition to create energetic rock with an affinity for infectious dance beats, the four dedicated all their time to writing, rehearsing and performing.
As for their live show, music columnist Michael O’Brien of Boston College’s The Heights, describes Stab the Matador as a band that “clutches that human desire to just go crazy and dance,” – and the band does just that with their raw and frenzied dance-inducing performances.
Since debuting at the Knitting Factory NYC in early 2006, the band has performed with groups such as Snowden, Under the Influence of Giants, ImaRobot and Matchbook Romance, and have been compared to pioneering artists such as Gang of Four and Joy Division, as well as contemporary bands such as The Rapture and Les Savy Fav.
