55 Stitches (2006-present) is a Industrial Metal band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
5 Stitches started as an outlet for Jay's (vocals/guitars/programing) personal rage and in late 2004 Derek McLean was added on to the project as the bass player who switched from rhythm guitars to bass for this project. Next came Dan Smethurst (drums), and in May 2006 Jen (synthesizer/keyboard) joined as the much needed synth queen. The act would be influenced by the likes of Rammstein, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails and Alice In Chains. To this point the band has remained as a live act, yet to record.
