Life to the Machine

Life to the Machine was formed through the conjoined creative cravings of 3 individuals in a basement in Medford. Now we have a bass player and practice in an attic. Come hear original tunes influenced by hard rock, grunge, blues, metal, and punk. Queens of the Stone age cover included! Our music will interrupt your apathy and get you out from between that rock and hard place. (Drums: Brianna Klingensmith, Bass guitar: Navi Bajwa, Guitar: Ryan Tarring, Vocals: Erica Moore).

We're an eclectic group with an equally eclectic taste in music. Our sound ranges from heavy metal, to country, to dance pop, to mellow acoustic vibes that we hope will give you all the feels.

Hot hot hot! The handle is hot! Get an oven mitt because this frying pan is sputtering with scalding hot riffs that taste a lot like Thin Lizzy and Pantera but have notes of GnR, Queen, and Maiden. The whole concoction smells strongly of early Van Halen and has a lightly progressive aftertaste while never sullying the taste buds with pretension. It tastes even better as leftovers.

“Guns of Brighton” are a traditional Punk firm out of Boston, MA. Their songs channel the urgency of the Clash and Social Distortion, along with the song craft and vocal harmonies of Green Day and Dag Nasty.
There is only one question Markie D., Ant Aubrey, and Lee Holland have for you. That is; “Do you wanna hear the sound of ‘Guns’?” Well, if your answer’s affirmative then follow our “Call to Arms!” The debut album “A Selfish Call to Arms” drops in April, 2014!
Playing "Porchfest" and other Boston area events / shows throughout the Spring of 2014!
