tolmezzo (UD), Italy
Carry-All are seven friends who live in a shitty small town forgotten by God in the north east of Italy and music is the only form of communication and comparison they have. The project begins a long time ago, but only in 2002, when horns join the band, they found the right feeling.
In summer 2002 the band goes in a recording studio for the first time and they record "Pet Friends" , their first E.P. Although the album has been released by any record label, it has sold more than 500 copies at their live shows. The record has been well reviewed from many Italian and European webzines and from the famous Italian magazine "Rock Sound". The single "Pet Friends" appears in many punk/ska italian compilations.
In 2004 they join NoReason Booking (now NoReason Live) and live shows around Italy begin to grow up, also because of the release of their second record "NoReason Split Vol. 1(2005). It's a split cd with their booking mates Garretti, Killjoy and Out Of Date. Four songs which point out the artistic grow of the band and even a small change of style, now more heavy and stroppy. The record has been produced by NoReason Booking and went out for five italian labels (Panc Records, Chumsley Records, Rolling Anarchy, San Martin e Growing Down).
In December 2004 the band plays at Jack Daniels tour with Africa Unite and The Hormonauts; the show is broadcasted by Rock TV, an italian famous music tv.
Meanwhile Carry-All begin to play shows out of Italy; they play in Austria, Germany and Slovenia where they found a cool audience that have fun and always appreciate their funny attitude on stage.
In July 2006 the band signed with Warner Brothers Cinema for three songs that will appear in some famous TV series such as The OC, Smallville, Veronica Mars, ecc.
In 2007 they cover "With Or Without You" (by U2); the song appers in "Punk Remake Compilation", a compilation of cover songs by Ammonia Records with bands like Vanilla Sky, Heideroosjes, BeerBong, ecc.
Europe again in January 2007, exactly Spain, together with BeerBong; a tour that hits France too. No doubts, live shows are definitely their point of strength.
In September 2008 the band's first full-lenght "EMOTIVHATE", has been released in Itlay by Wynona Records/Sin Records; in Germany, austria and Switzerland by Rockhit Records.
In December 2008 they support Less Thank Jake at Rolling Stone in Milan.
In 2009 the record has been released in Japan (an exclusive version) by Fried Rice records / In-n-Out Records.
The final result is a younger powerful mix of Mad Caddies and Less Than Jake. PARTY is their lifestyle and they are ready to tour and to drink all over.
