Bronx's Own Sweet Cyanide

Other bands that Sweet Cyanide will be gracing the stage with include Godsmack, 3 Days Grace, Pop Evil, Creed, Stone Temple Pilots, Rev Theory, Alice in Chains, and Guns n Roses. The festival draws a crowd of 100,000 throughout the week and this year is proving to be no different.

Sweet Cyanide is comprised of four individualistic, yet united stimulation junkies. “All four of us are literally insane—but each in a totally different way,” laughs Angelo Fariello. The bassist grew up idolizing Nikki Sixx, Paul McCartney and Gene Simmons, and loves that SC’s live show is “like a punch in the face.” He terms lead singer, Sal Scoca, an evil genius, getting inside your head and making you believe you’re orange.

Sweet Cyanide is the collective endeavor of members from two NYC based bands that are well recognized on the regional scene, Crashbox and Moment Theory. Sal Scoca (Vocals/ Guitar) and Angelo Fariello (Bass), both from Crashbox developed a solid bond with Mike Bambace (Drums) and Joe Salvatore (Guitar) from Moment Theory.
