Brought together by a mutual love of tuned-down, massive riffs from bands like Soundgarden, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Smashing Pumpkins, Failure & Alice In Chains and a common bond in their general disdain for today’s society & everything Orwellian, New Yorker’s Michael Grgas on guitar & Ken Colosa on bass, vocalist/SoCal native Evan Michael Mentone and Kentucky-bred drummer Joseph Yabao realized they needed an outlet. HIDDEN AMONGST US became exactly that.
They may be new to the Los Angeles scene but the members have more than paid their dues in prior bands opening up for the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Sepultura, Danzig, Sevendust, Machinehead, Jesus Lizard, 30STM & Five Finger Death Punch.
HAU released their first EP “Echo” on March 18th, 2014 along with a Limited Edition double EP vinyl containing a pre-release of their next EP “Parallel” slated to come out on September 2nd. Both were mixed & mastered by Matt Hyde (Monster Magnet, Deftones, Staind, Slayer) and produced by the band along with additional production help from Aeges’ vocalist Kemble Walters.
