Human Waste Project was born during a car ride to Lollapalooza a few summers ago. Friends Jeff Schartoff (bass) and Scott Ellis (drums) decided to form a band, and asked Aimee Echo if she could scream. She assured them that she could, and the new group (who hail from Huntington Beach, CA.) set out to find a suitable guitarist for their disturbed alterna-metal. After hooking up with guitarist John Monte, the group started writing and rehearsing. Monte didn't last long, which led to a long search for a permanent replacement, which they finally found in Bronx native Mike Tempesta.
