WATCH OUT!  The Clifton, NJ band - ToyMachine - is on the move and on the rise ... and there's nothing that's going to stop them! As the guys have said in the past, "We'll do whatever it takes to get our music recognized."

ToyMachine has that "go get 'em" attitude that's essential to making it in today's music industry, but their efforts are not without merit. The band has recently been recording with some of the best in the business ... traveling to Austin, TX several times to record under the direction of Blk Odyssy's  Sam Houston.

And in 2021 alone, ToyMachine has released five monster singles that are destined for chart-topping success and some serious radio play. Listen below.

"Party & Bullshit"

"I'm Fine"

"I Think I Hate Myself"

"Run Rabbit Run"

"The Fame"

If you live in the NY/NJ/PA area, then you are in luck! ToyMachine is scheduled to perform in three upcoming, very special shows. They will open for Sam Houston at Elsewhere Zone 1 on Sept 2nd, headline at Debonair Music Hall on September 10th, and open for RDGGLDGRN in Pittsburgh, PA on September 23rd!

With the influences of Rage Against The Machine, Linkin Park, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Helmet, and Limp Bizkit, ToyMachine really puts out an in-your-face type of sound. The vocals are raw, the guitar riffs are heavy, and the rhythm section is tight.

"We want to make rock fun again, it has been stale for years and has such a preconceived notion to be 'too heavy' or 'metal' before anyone even gives it a chance", says guitar player Ryan Lamon.

ToyMachine shows always leave people saying "I didn't know what to expect, but I love their energy and sound!" Their new line-up has way more energy with the additions of Ray Bentley (singer) and Greg Alders (drums  existing members Ryan Lamon (guitar) and Mickey O'Connor (bass).

ToyMachine has played at venues such as: Starland Ballroom, White Eagle Hall, The Stone Pony, Arlene's Grocery, Pianos, The Delancey, Debonair Music Hall, etc. They have opened up for ill Nino at the Starland Ballroom, Crazy Town, Trapt, Tantric, and RDGLDGRN. 

Stay tuned for more new music coming soon! Click the photo below for the band's new "sludgey" merch!!
