The Material is a female fronted rock music quintet from San Diego, California.
Colleen D'Agostino (vocals) moved to San Diego to pursue a music degree at San Diego State University. In her third year, she began playing with Jon Moreaux (guitar) and Noah Vowles (drums). The threesome added bassist Kevin Falk, formerly of Every Time I Die and Between the Buried and Me, and started writing songs for their first demo. Kevin was replaced by Brian Miller (bass), and Roi Elam (guitar) joined shortly after.
With the permanent line up, The Material went into the studio to record their 6-song debut EP "Tomorrow", which was co-produced by Brian Grider and was released on September 1, 2007. They placed in the top 3 of the Dew Circuit Breakout of 2007, losing to Seattle band, The Myriad.
The Material has been featured on MTV and MTV2 and their song "Moving to Seattle" is also available to download for the video game, Rock Band.
Most recently, the band released 3 brand-new songs ("Unforgivable," "Before This Ship Goes Down," and "Give It All Back"). Their 'To Weather The Storm' EP is available for download on iTunes and Amazon.
