Tons the new band featuring the remaining members of the reformed legendary Santa Barbara metal/punk rock hybrid Snot (Mike Doling on guitar, John "Tumor" Fahnestock on bass and Jamie Miller on drums) alongside new vocalist Brandon has posted the first two tracks on its MySpace page. Check out the songs "Ability & Control" and "1,000 Ways Of Pain" at this location. Snot parted ways with frontman Tommy Vext (a.k.a. Tommy Cummings) and axeman Sonny Mayo earlier in the year after a five-month songwriting period which produced "a lot of strain on relationships within the band," according to Doling. Regarding Tons' latest addition, Doling wrote in a June 2009 post, "He's blowing our fucking minds... It's been such an amazing time working as a four-piece... "The writing is going smoooooth!! I do gotta say, I miss my friends Sonny and Tommy. Like I said, I wish the best for them!! This seems like it was meant to be this way somehow. "We are writing punk fuckin' rock and funky grooves... the way Snot is supposed to sound." Snot disbanded in 1998 following the death of the group's lead singer, Lynn Strait. Lynn died in a car accident in December 1998, putting an end to a career that generated considerable promise but only one studio album, the 1997 Geffen Records release "Get Some". Also killed was the band's mascot Dobbs, Strait's dog who adorned the cover of Snot's debut album. The band had been writing material for its sophomore CD and had completed 10 songs at the time of Strait's tragic passing. As a memorial to Strait, Snot eventually decided to release those tracks, with lyrics and guest vocals provided by a host of stars from the alt-metal community. The resulting album, "Strait Up", was a fitting tribute from Strait's peers and friends, featuring members of Limp Bizkit, Korn, Slipknot, Sevendust, (Hed) P.E., Coal Chamber, Sugar Ray, System Of A Down, Soulfly, and more. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    you can only speak for yourself. btw you already wasted seconds on that post, that means you half-cared to even bother post that lame question.. I love snot when Lynn was still in it and kinda like when Vext became the new guy..i practically named my dog after dobs. sadly i guess Snot is just too good-to-be-true to carry on. cant really get into Tons though.

    Alright - they spelled the name backwards and got a vocalist that isn't as good as their last one, then went 100% punk.... I miss the old Snot...

    So they renamed their band by spelling their old band name backwards? That's... interesting.
