The Quarantined is a rock band from Los Angeles, CA. Led by lead singer/guitarist, Sean Martin, drummer
Kaspars Grinbergs, and bassist Alex Diaz, and guitarist Edi Roque, they successfully are mixing a wide range of influences from Rock and Roll,
metal, rap, grunge and Punk. By using poetic lyricism and crossing
genres, armed with a lyrical prowess and a unique story to tell that is
unrivaled in Los Angeles, The Quarantined has broken all barriers - all
preconceived notions of where rock music can go in a digital era. Nominated by Pure M Magazine as Best International Act 2015. Organic and accessible, defined yet versatile; The Quarantined is exactly what it is, while being exactly not what you expected.
Sean and Kaspars started off working up and refining a unique sound in a friends' home studio, and had many different friends jam with them, on 2nd guitar and bass, to help develop the sound and songs. They
recorded a half live-track, half studio-track EP entitled "Where did
you Go?", released independently on CDBaby, and Itunes. Sean, Kaspars,
and Alex solidified the lineup as a trio soon after. Through crowd
testing singles via internet promotion, while playing live around Los
Angeles in bars and clubs, The band embraced their difference of
influences and brought high energy shows with in your face aggression,
with passion and conviction. In 2014, they stayed busy playing shows at
bigger local LA venues like the House of Blues-Sunset, Loaded, and
Infusion Lounge @ Universal Citywalk. They hired director John Rael to
make their first music video for "Point the Finger", (edited by Alex),
Both Kaspars and Sean played at Metal Jam 2015, a local benefit concert
for Autism Speaks. Now the band is creating the bedrock of their brand
with Charlie Waymire of Ultimate Studios Inc. - to develop a 5-song EP
and a documentary on their recording process, a 7 chapter Op-Ed called
“Music in the Digital Age”, and a 3D art lyric video for their song,
“Feeding you Lies” produced by Deviant Media Productions.
Sean, Kaspars, Alex and Edi all come from varying backgrounds, and bring unique influences to the music they make from their wide array of life experiences that comes from all three striving after their goals in their own ways.
Sean served in the US Army Airborne Infantry (with the 3/509th, 4th Brigade, 25th I.D.) from 2004- 2007, in Iraq in Oct. 2006- September 2007. Singing at 4 years old and playing guitar at 12, he is also a Musician's Institute graduate with an A.A. in Guitar performance/Music industry studies. He is Executive producing The Quarantined's albums, and is the main lyricist, songwriter, and content creator for the band.
Alex, as well as being a talented bassist, guitarist, songwriter, photographer, and luthier, he is working on starting his own personally crafted guitar and bass business, making each instrument from scratch and by hand from unique woods. Originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, he has been known to travel the world, and is getting into film editing.
Kaspars grew up in Latvia under the control of soviet Russia. Experiencing brutality from the establishments of government at a young age, he taught himself a ruthless determination to succeed in life, along with how to hit the drums really f*cking hard, and has developed a keen ear for metal. He studied languages as well, and is fluent in 5: English, Latvian, German, Swedish, and Russian. He came to Los Angeles to play drums for a living, and played on a national American tour with RelicSeed, a metal band originally from
Latvia, thru mid- October in 2014. He also plays with Pain Love n' War,
and Slavestate, a grindcore band with Menno Verbaten.

international awards, the New Old School Studio owner, a member of LARAS

The Quarantined is working with Producer/Engineer/Musician Charlie Waymire of Ultimate Studios Inc., on a 5 song EP called "Antiquate Hate", slated for release in September 2015, and a series of Youtube videos and a short documentary about the stories behind the music and about the recording process and business processes for an independent band in a new, digital age.
"People all in a room, playing music together - the way music should be." We pride ourselves on being knowledgable about our work. Of all the things I've done with my focus, by far the most rewarding has been investing in music- time, energy, attention, money.
When it comes to producing the first thing I'm going to sell to everyone I know, I owe it to them that the music I make means something- But also that it leads by example.
You're just gonna have to wait for the how to- cause that secret is mine, bitch... For now.
Ok, fine....here's some straight up knowledge for you in area of Guitar recording- but when Producer/engineer Charlie Waymire is talking, you shut the fuck up. #MyproducerkicksyourproducersAss #LearnSumptin
A blind man, a deaf woman, and an aphasiac man are trying to drive a car. They can either argue about why the deaf can't hear the blind man speak, and the aphasiac man can't respond to the deaf woman's signs but understands all the same, etc... Commiseration does nothing to keep the car on the road.
But action that comes from understanding strengths and weaknesses, in order to work together, which supports the others shortcomings, will accomplish the goal, where one acting alone cannot. One way is focused, the other is not. One is a team, the other is not.
Which one has the higher probability of success?
Focus is key, but don't forget you are not alone in needing survival, no matter how blind or deaf you choose to be to people. Life is everywhere- you are inherently a part of it, no matter what.
Enemy is purely a perspective, never an absolute. Rules, game, environment may change but the self is usually the most underestimated and is the need most taken for granted, until genuinely threatened, that can change the hearts of those without a heart.
Don't be deaf to threats- it is an expression of strength and a display of weakness of an adversary at the same time. Learn to see the benefit of the light, as well as the shadow that exposes the reality when the light is too bright.
Don't be blind to suffering, be mindful of your wake. No one knows true pain except the dead, for pain is weakness leaving the body.
Suffering, however, is unnecessary and breeds hatred and blame, guilt and shame- the victims loss may be justified in vengeance, and solutions from the hateful are usually death. Respect sustains all relationships.
Learn to speak of your true intentions, simply. If you can't, shut the fuck up until you learn what integrity means. Real solutions are not preceded by displays of ego.
--the best advice I've ever given, from every piece of good advice I've ever gotten on how to be a warrior.
So we got the final masters back from Ernesto Homeyer, and they are fucking amazing!
Our little cookies are done, grown to their potential; now we send them off to college! Planetary college, that is ;)
Then, to a warehouse. Then, to the sky, in waves, and out towards space. Just call me the
#astromusician, or #nerd if you're nasty.
Until then, here's Charlie to tell you the science behind the music. #musicandscience #NDGT #startalk

Producer Charlie Waymire breaks down the technical aspects of recording our vocal tracks.
I'm proud to be working with such a knowledgable engineer and a producer who can draw the best performance out of you, while being real and a helluva nice guy.
The Quarantined is in production of their 2nd EP at Ultimate Studios Inc., but we have a sneak peak of the demos to be on the EP entitled, "The End?!". U.S. Army combat veteran and Musicians Institute graduate Sean Martin plays guitar and has extreme vocal strength: seamlessly moving between dynamic singing and hard spoken poetic lyrics that moves with his driven, metal/punk style guitar playing. Nominated for Best International Act by the Pure M Awards 2015, this is a band the world needs to prepare for.

By the way our cover photo is not photoshopped- I.e. We actually stood in the road, set that picture up in between traffic on an early Sunday Morning. Got many compliments from the drivers behind us.
A good time was had by all.

Just watched the latest VICE News Episode on Police Militarization and Immigration; they are two things that if we changed our mentality used in our decision making by adjusting our goals from repression to peace... Well, I can still imagine all the people sharing all the world. It is much more complicated than when John said it, but that means its all the more true. #Dreamer

Congress can expand the VA and needs to support the amount of vets that are now in the system. We can't let them fall. And since the VA is controlled by congress, this petition is the only form of a voice we have in the care vets receive. It's not perfect, but it's a good start. Sign it today!

You could call The Quarantined a rock band; but it crosses genres with ease, covers topics that are some of the most controversial of our time. Their music alone stands out from the crowd with an organic aggression that is visceral but inviting. Simply put, this band re-imagines the rebel spirit of American punk rock. Sean Martin brings his unique talents of highly poetic and aggressive vocals while playing guitar in this trio. Kaspars Grinbergs hits hard and with precision on drums, and Alex Diaz fills out the sound on bass. The band has released the first single, “Feeding You Lies”, off of the forthcoming EP Antiquate Hate.
The group is currently on the remainder of the EP with Producer/Engineer Charlie Waymire at Ultimate Studios inc. The album art is slated to be done by local to L.A. graphic designer Jad Dovey, and as a special guest on guitar, the band added guitar solos from Edi Roque.
The first look we have at the process is simplistic, yet sophisticated. From the short clips posted online, the setups are similar to Nirvana’s studio setup for their eponymous album, Nevermind.
A special short documentary is being formed in conjunction with the EP to cover how the songs were written, and the process from inception to distribution: they would know, they are doing it all themselves.
Nominated for Best International Act by Pure M Awards in 2015, this highly anticipated EP is expected for release in September 2015.
