It all started when…
The band Latterday Saints, formerly known as Guy Smiley, was born and bred in Yonkers, New York in 1994. Each member offers a different musical style, resulting in a post-grunge, yet heavily blues influenced, rock sound.
During the mid to late nineties, they refined their sound in NYC staples like CBGB, Acme Underground, Arlene’s Grocery, The Elbow Room and the Hard Rock Cafe. In 2002, LDS was voted one of Top 5 Unsigned Bands in NYC on the Ron Fez Show on 102.7 WNEW, and recorded their signature version of Weezer’s “Tired of Sex” for the Cleopatra Records cult album A Punk Tribute To Weezer.
After years of crafting a tight catalog of melodic, hook-laden, pop rock, Latterday Saints did what every promising band on the brink of success does: they broke up. Twenty-five years later, the band having since reunited, serve as the inspiration for the characters in the new independent feature film No Alternative. Having just signed with Rhyme & Reason Records, Latterday Saints are now the best new/old band you never discovered in the record store. Until now.
