Drawing on influences like Queens of the Stone Age, Chevelle, and Truckfighters, the band blends an attention to detail with a love for playing loud. They are equal parts nerd and hard rocker. When they aren’t building something in the shop or discussing calculus after practice, they’re likely writing lyrics or debating the untimely end of Firefly over a plate of hot wings.

Smellblind wallows in the power trio format, with all three members sharing vocal duties. The band writes the intense music that they have the most fun playing, drawing on the slightly twisted perspective that can only come from growing up in the shadow of a 14,000 foot mountain that boasts wildfires, megachurches, and the highest rate of Sasquatch sightings anywhere in the world.

Jacob and Dan had played in several bands together over the years, and in 2012 sought a bassist for a new project. After scaring away several promising candidates with their cynicism, dark sense of humor, and general irreverence, things were looking grim indeed. It was around this time that Jacob ran into Zach at a local brewery. In elementary school, Jacob and Zach had had a brief friendship that flourished around the destruction of a toy firetruck and then faded immediately. Nearly twenty years later, they found that Zach’s bass talent meshed with Jacob and Dan’s musical tastes, and that he could weather even their most curmudgeonly outbursts. They now play the music they love, attend concerts together, and live the well-adjusted lifestyle of three grown-ass men (or grown ass-men?) in a rock band.

We are looking for fans who have jobs, a car, and know what they want in life. We've had our heart broken before, so if you're looking for a one-night-stand, we're not the band for you. Snugglers are a plus!

Fuzzy guitars, hairy bass, and timeless drumming happen at every show. We play loud for the neighbors whether they want us to or not.
