CorpuS is a powerhouse, four-man hard rock band from the Midwestern United States. CorpuS features Tucker Tonkel, vocals; Mike Haynes, guitar and vocals; Chris Schmoker, bass; and T.J. Snow, drums. For the past four years, CorpuS has been thriving in an area of the U.S. where cover-heavy bar bands are the norm. South Dakota has little to no support for local original music and CorpuS has made a name for themselves by putting on a show that demands attention. With no way to avoid playing the four hour sets at bars and clubs throughout the Midwest, the band made a decision to be different and put on a show featuring all their original songs in the mix. Their debut album “Show Me Somthin” was released in 2005 and has received rave reviews. Now, working on their sophomore album, the band has taken a break after more than two years of touring. The album features the songs “Rectified” and "Leave Me Alone", recorded by famed producer Bradley Cook (Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Yellowcard, Counting Crows, Everclear, SR71) and mastered at Oasis Mastering by Eddy Schreyer(Chevelle, Tool, Sevendust, Avenged Sevenfold, A Perfect Circle, Korn, Sublime, System of a Down, Offspring), along with “When I Need You” and “Change”. Their song “Rectified” is in current rotation on various radio stations across the U.S. CorpuS has shared the main-stage with bands such as: Powerman 5000, Crossfade, Saliva, Drowning Pool, Jackyl and Egypt Central. They have also been featured magazines such as: (Modern Drummer Magazine-drummer TJ Snow, No Cover Magazine with Seether, Muen Magazine, Indie Label Magazine, Tub Magazine, Artist Launch Magazine, and Medium Magazine). The demand by fans, for CorpuS to perform live, has been so great that clubs across the Midwest carry their CD in jukeboxes and on regular DJ rotations while the band is away. CorpuS, an unsigned band, has been working very hard for a chance to take their show on to the National level. They have been described as having,”A showy set, with attitude and flashy lights galore”, as well as being, “top-notch, with aggressive music and powerful vocals”. Front man Tonkel has been quoted as having, “a range and maturity in his voice, rarely heard out of vocalists on this level”. With the addition of Snow, formerly with ‘Sons of Poseidon’, a National Metal Act, CorpuS is gaining much respect in the music industry. Snow made his first appearance in 'Modern Drummer Magazine’ in December of '07, and recently signed an endorsement deal with Trick Drums. The band was also recently nominated the Best Regional Band of '07 award. CorpuS is ready to take the next step.
