SMP, aka Sounds of Mass Production, is a Seattle based industrial-rock band, with heavy rap and punk influences.
As of May 2009 the band is currently back from a year long hiatus writing new material and planning a tour with Vancouver industrial-rock act, Stiff Valentine.
SMP’s most current record, "The Treatment" was produced by Wade Alin of Christ Analogue and released on founding member Jason Bazinet’s own label, Music Ration Entertainment. A digital-only remix album based on “The Treatment,” titled “Pissing on the Legacy” is also available.
SMP's previous five releases are “Crimes of the Future” (2004), "Hacked" (2001), "Terminal" (2002 & 2000), "Ultimatum" (1998) and "Stalemate" (1995).
SMP's live shows are an amalgamation of the physical and the electronic. Expect furious drumming, biting guitar, punk & rap styled vocals, and a mess of electronic sounds.
SMP was founded by Bazinet and Sean Ivy, and the pair debuted in 1995 with "Stalemate." The current live make-up of the band is Jason Bazinet, Rob Seaverns, and Juan Gomez.
