      Toad the Wet Sprocket

      with Beta Play
      Named in honor of a sketch by the Monty Python comedy troupe, this 4-piece band of Santa Barbara, CA high school cronies came to be known as Toad the Wet Sprocket in 1986. To this day, their mellow, melodic folk-pop sound made them one of the most successful alternative rock bands of the early 1990s.Toad the Wet Sprocket (Glen Phillips on lead vocals and guitar, Dean Dinning on bass and vocals, Todd Nichols on lead guitar and vocals, and Randy Guss on the drums) share in the kind of musical chemistry that can only come from meeting in high school and writing, recording and touring on albums over the course of those 25 years. After Bread & Circus, they followed with Pale in 1990, fear in 91, Dulcinea in 1994, and Coil in 1997, as well as some compilations and rarities compilations along the way. While most will feel the comforting familiarity of the Billboard-charting hits, Walk on the Ocean, All I Want, Somethings Always Wrong, and Fall Down, new fans will also be well familiar with their new hits such as California Wasted which continues to climb the charts. Even with a period of the band members weaving in and out of each others musical lives, the same creative curiosity that inspired the band to form in 1986 has brought them full circle to come back together again. Toad the Wet Sprockets last album New Constellation, which was launched with an impressive #3 most funded Kickstarter Campaign in music for the year, was the bands first new album in 16 years when released in 2013, and features the singles New Constellation, The Moment, and California Wasted. The bands current release, the EP Architect of Ruin was released in June of 2015.
