California punk band Annihilation Time was formed in late 2001 by guitarist Graham Clise, vocalist Fred Hammer, drummer Jamie Sanitate and bassist Chris Grande. Soon Tony Molino was recruited as second guitar. After playing a few shows and parties around the Ventura County area, Sanitate and Melino switch roles, as each excelled at the other's instrument. This lineup recorded the first Annihilation Time record in 2002. The band then did a US tour with fill-in drummer Clinton Stoggsdale, as Tony was unable get time off from school.Read More...
Vocalist Hammer departed in late 2002, replaced by US tour roadie Jimmy Rose, a Parma, Ohio native then living in Oakland. In June 2003 they recorded the Bad Reputation EP for the now-defunct DeadAlive Records.
Second guitarist Sanitate then stepped down, replaced by Cleveland native Shaun Filley. This line-up--Clise, Grande, Molino, Filley and Rose--would remain stable for some time, touring the US several times and Europe twice. The first European excursion would yeild a recording in Den Haag, Holland in May 2004 that would become the notorious II LP, followed up in January 2006 by the Cosmic Unconsciousness EP on Tankcrimes Records.
At the end of 2006, Filley and Molino left; Noel Sullivan took up the drums, and Wes Wilson joined on second guitar. This lineup recorded Annihilation Time III: Tales of the Ancient Age for Tee Pee Records at the end of 2007.
After the split Annihilation Time went on to form Lecherous Gaze.
