Hailing from Bethlehem, PA, the Insidious Rays play a wild combination of surf, country, reggae, and punk rock with a tinge of psychedelia over it all. Before gathering the rest of the band, singer/guitarist Matt Love had written the bulk of the tunes on his own. When he was ready, Love was able to bring aboard musicians who shared his eclectic tastes and had a wide range of experiences. Lead guitarist Mike Davidson had toured with various independent bands, bassist Dave Johnsen played with the Zappa-inspired Project/Object, drummer Jon Braun had played with Chris Harford, and Nick Levinos was a jazz-schooled keyboardist. In 2003 the band released More Songs About Sex, Love, Death and Sex.
