And This Army


And This Army (2005-present): a Heavy Metal band from Brooklyn, New York, USA.


ailing from coasts of South Brooklyn, And This Army would form under the control of Andrew Lanza (bass), Jason Bennett (drums), and Brendan McDermott (guitar): three college educated young men with a penchant for messed-up, dense, mutant rock and roll. Lanza and Bennett met in high school and played together in various incarnations during their early years. They later met Brendan McDermott, a singer/guitarist from upstate New York, who was working at Rhinebeck's Clubhouse Studio at the time. The three played together and felt, after a short search for a fourth member, that the sound they were looking for was there... as a trio. In early 2004, And This Army was born.

After their debut LP FOE (2006), And This Army cut their teeth at many NYC venues including Northsix, Southpaw, and Sin-e, having become renowned for their blistering volume and clockwork tightness draped in paranormal-level sonic chaos.

And This Army attracts (and deafens) a diverse audience from Brooklyn indie-rock aficionados to metal loyalists. The band's strange and unsettling combination of sounds comes from being influenced by so many seemingly incompatible sources such as Mission of Burma, Explosions in the Sky, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and Black Sabbath.
