Camisado is a 6-piece screamo/hardcore/post-hardcore band from Baltimore, Maryland. The blend of heavy riffing, intense breakdowns, passionate lyrics and catchy chorus' is Camisado's defining sound that will catch your ear and find a place in your heart. This always-evolving band continues to delight fans with their single "I'm a Dreamer, Not a Realist" off their 2010 release of "The Life I'm Missing." Their highly anticipated album titled, "Pulse," is set to release in the spring of 2011, featuring the singles "Deception Never Looked So Good" and "Are You Still Alive?" Through dedication and their love for playing music, Camisado continues to follow their dreams and make their mark in the music world.
In the spring of 2005, Joe Deak and Juan Zuluaga formed Camisado. A similar taste in music and the same dream was the combination that drew the two to start the band and move forward. Through their time together, they sifted through a few members until finally on September 9th, 2008, a final lineup was chosen and the band was "officially" formed. The members consisted of Joe Deak(Vocals), Juan Zuluaga (Guitar), Quincy Jones (Drums), Louis Garcia (Guitar) Andrew Sheetz(Bass) and Nick Frymark(Keys).
After only a year together they were already taking the music scene by storm by sharing the stage with bands such as Motionless in White, Gwen Stacy, Our Last Night, In Fear and Faith, and I See Stars. The band won the 2009 Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands to play Warped Tour in Pittsburg. Shortly afterwards, Nick and Sheetz informed the band that they will be perusing other interests. The band took this time to release their Justin Timberlake cover of "My Love" in November of 2009.
While writing for the new record, the band was introduced by Louis to Jeff Schofield. Instantly, he and the band hit it off and began learning the songs to prepare for the studio. About a week before entering the studio the band decided it would be best for Quincy to take the open bassist position. With this Joe knew Pat Gale from his previous band and asked if he was interested in playing for the band. Pat joined the band in the studio and the 6 continued on, striving to keep growing as a band.
The spring of 2010 their EP "The Life I'm Missing" was released with a very positive response. Listener's credited the band's upward progression and helped Camisado's fan base grow even more. After playing many shows and gaining the respect of fans all around their home state, they came in contact with Yogi Allgood of Outerloop management. Noticing the positive progression and potential of the band, the band signed with Outerloop Management in November of 2010.
Having written material for another EP already, Camisado went to producer/engineer Will Putney (Suicide Silence, Every Time I Die, Chiodos, A Skylit Drive) The band worked really hard to push themselves and the music they were writing. The album titled "Pulse" is a 5 track EP set to release in the Spring of 2011. Recently, Louis Garcia informed the band that he would be moving on to pursue other interests. With that, Camisado extended an invitation to their previous bassist Andrew Sheetz to play keys for the band. He made the decision to follow through with the band and has been playing for Camisado since February of 2011.
With their new and improved sound and awe inspiring live show, Camisado is making strides and making their name known. Don't miss out on Camisado live, in a city near you!
