Biography[edit | edit source]
Wind Up Toy picked up from where Alien Diffusion left off. After its beginnings, Chris Kuster, the bassist, was kicked out of the band due to a lack of commitment and Chris Blatchly (Life Between Sleep) joined the band.
In 2004, Tom Spartinos the lead singer of Wind Up Toy began playing shows with Code: Adrenaline and a side project, Silent Tragedy (made up of members of both Wind Up Toy and Code: Adrenaline) and eventually joined Code: Adrenaline as a singer and guitarist. During this time, Nick Zinnanti also had a very brief stay in the band as a guitarist and singer. In 2004, the band released The Getaway EP. When things in Code: Adrenaline began winding down, Tom began concentrating more on Wind Up Toy and began writing more Indie Pop styled music for it. During this period it included Sam Trestman (ex-Code: Adrenaline, who replaced Chris Blatchly on bass, Jerry Meehan, and Danny Furrer.
