Shred Rot formed in September of 2010, after all three members met and performed at the Paul Green School of Rock Music in Cleveland. They are currently working on their self-released debut album 'Nuthing Extra Special' which is projected to release in  Fall 2012.
The main goal we strive to achieve with our music is to spread a message of hope. None of us were exactly flourishing in the social realm of our lives, but we found ourselves through music, and we want to give off a feeling of hope to anyone who feels they're not good enough or having trouble staying afloat. Sometimes music can get a message across better than words can and we want to be the ones to deliver that message.

SHRED ROT is based out of Cleveland, Ohio. All the information you need to know will be noted in detail in this area. Be sure to check back frequently for updates and new information on SHRED ROT !

This song is about a teen who tragically took his own life. He was experiencing questions about himself and his sexual orientation. Was bullied, tormented and harassed. He felt alone, out of place and had lost hope. Regretfully he chose a path with a irreversible decision. He not only ended his own life early, but hurt and forever will be missed by the people who loved him and became his friends.

Shred Rot is representing the Buckeye State very well and it's only a matter of time before I see a Shred Rot sticker on the bumper of some dude in front of me in traffic. The lead vocalist (Matt Miller) has one of the most uniquely incredible singing voices I've in the rock music in a long time and you can't ever mistake him for anyone else. The drummer (Scott Drazdik) is ridiculously amazing and Nick Reinmann can slapa-da-bayassman! Review by: Senseitional, I Am Entertainment Magazine.
