Shred Rot formed in September of 2010, after all three members met and performed at the Paul Green School of Rock Music in Cleveland. They are currently working on their self-released debut album 'Nuthing Extra Special' which is projected to release in  Fall 2012.
The main goal we strive to achieve with our music is to spread a message of hope. None of us were exactly flourishing in the social realm of our lives, but we found ourselves through music, and we want to give off a feeling of hope to anyone who feels they're not good enough or having trouble staying afloat. Sometimes music can get a message across better than words can and we want to be the ones to deliver that message.

SHRED ROT is based out of Cleveland, Ohio. All the information you need to know will be noted in detail in this area. Be sure to check back frequently for updates and new information on SHRED ROT !

Scene Magazine CD Review: Shred Rot 12-28-12


With lyrics that make you want to shield the ears of any close-by babes, you'd never picture the band as the young, seemingly innocent, high school trio they are. For three Cleveland guys who got together a little over two years ago, Nuthing Extra Special is a hell of a way to come out of the gate. — Nikki Hunt

I Am Entertainment Magazine's Review of Shred Rot's 1st Album

Shred Rot is utterly - ridiculously - insanely - awesomely rockadocious, and their new
album release, Nuthin Extra Special is truly an extra special project!
 Who the h-e-double-
hockey-stix left the gate open and let these madmen into the yard?!
The first time I heard Shred Rot's single "Scars From Mars" in 2011 I knew they'd eventually release an album full of hot music!

 The lead vocalist (Matt Miller) has one of the most uniquely incredible singing voices I've in
the rock music in a long time and you can't ever mistake him for anyone else. The
drummer (Scott Drazdik) is ridiculously amazing and Nick Reinmann can slapa-da-bayass
man! Overall, Shred Rot's project 'Nuthin Extra Special' is one of the best alternative grit rock
albums I've heard in 2012. Review by: Senseitional
