Them Animals are self-described as loud, wet, blue-gut tunes from the land of pleasant livin’. Originally formed in 2014 in Baltimore, Maryland by Jamie Zeller and Chris Stoll, Them Animals have evolved from a basement-dwelling garage rock band into one of Baltimore's fastest up and coming artists.
They've played at events like Light City Festival, David Fair of Half Japaneese’s Shakemore Fest, and Artscape and have provided support for touring artists such as Mountains Like Wax, Scarlet Sails, Grace Vonderkuhn, Faux Furs, Radiator King and Auva.
Them Animals have also been prominent in the local Baltimore scene, sharing bills with many local acts including The Lushpockets (at HI Baltimore Hostel), Lenore Lenoire, Thunder Club, Wae, Tigerer, FuzzQueen (DC), Unholy Sights and others.
Zeller's deep-rooted lyrics, combined with Stoll's fuzz-driven guitar tones have provided a unique mix of lyricism and overdrive. The addition of Chris Curran on drums in 2016 incorporated a fast hitting punk influence that has since helped push the group onto the local radar. More recently, Them Animals added Nolan Kerbert (formerly of Fine,Fine) on bass to provide a more sweltering, in your face live sound.
Them Animals new single “Dead Air” is set to release on November 10th, 2017. Recorded during the final days of Mobtown Studios, the song is the band’s first proper studio rendition, having self recorded 80% of their self-titled EP earlier in the year.
