Just A Mess


Just a Mess is a three-piece band hailing from the windy city of Chicago. Formed in 2019, this band is a force to be reckoned with, as they combine the intense, emotionally charged sound of Deftones with the introspective lyricism of Brand New.

The band’s founding members, Tony Sarlo and Kyle Blais, first met in a drunk tank after a night out on the town. They quickly realized their mutual love for music and decided to form a band. After the departure of their original drummer, Cory Gray, Kevin Kovacevich joined the band on drums and quickly established himself as an essential part of Just a Mess.

Despite their name, Just a Mess is anything but chaotic when it comes to their music. Their sound is a precise and calculated blend of heavy, guitar-driven riffs and poignant, introspective lyrics. Their lyrics explore themes of loss, heartbreak, and nostalgia for a time that has passed.

While Just a Mess may be picky about who they interview with, they are more than willing to connect with their fans through their music. Tony Sarlo’s haunting vocals and intricate guitar work blend seamlessly with Kyle Blais’s pulsing basslines and Kevin Kovacevich’s thunderous drumming.

Just a Mess’s music is not for the faint of heart. It is an emotional journey that is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who listens. But for those who are brave enough to take the ride, they will find a band that is authentic, passionate, and unapologetically real.
