Proxima Control is an NYC/Baltimore based metal/alternative band founded in 2009.
In the fall of 2009, guitarists and founders John P. and Matt Z. were sold fake tickets to a Metallica concert. Angered but inspired, the duo decided to start a band of their own. A time of searching bore fruit in finding the talented and like-minded singer Jack Hope and bassist Ben Souder. Following the release of their first demo, the quartet recruited the precocious Matt Lippa on drums.
In March 2012, Proxima Control won recording time at a battle of the bands competition. After recording their second demo, "Inertia Massacre", the quintet began their first relentless round through the NYC club circuit, ending with a spectacular show in Washington DC in August.
Proxima Control's regional influence has been growing since, especially in the New York City scene. Their debut LP is due for release this Spring, stay tuned. [+]
