WHO IS SCHISM?
Bred and spread out of Manhattan spiraling out...
Not many cover or tribute bands out there ever attempt to engage in the raw talent, mysticism, math and magic that is TOOL, but if you talk to four brave souls from New York City (Keith Williams- Guitar, Angelo Rivera- Vocals, Pierson Milazzo- Bass, Donald Pusateri- Drums) their love and passion for this music led them to form SCHISM, New York City's premier TOOL tribute band.
"We started this back in 2001, after seeing TOOL at Hammerstein Ballroom. We simply loved the music and wanted to share it live with other TOOL minded fans" says SCHISM guitarist Keith Williams.
"We've been a national touring act for 20 years now. This isn't something you tap your foot to, this is more of an interactive experience for the listener. These songs are compositional masterpieces, which will be studied for years to come. It's where music and art collide".
If you've never had the chance to see TOOL live, here's your local opportunity, and truly a job well done as they're celebrating their 20th year anniversary.
We invite you, the collective unconscious to share with us the experience of TOOL & Schism.
