*UPDATED BIO 2011* Us Versus Them (UVT) is a metalcore band from Winthrop, Massachusetts. Winthrop is also home to iconic metal band Unearth. Us Versus Them shows that there is no lack of metal talent in the tiny suburb of Boston. UVT was established in late 2007 when singer/songwriter Matt Romero joined forces with high school friend and guitarist Rich Noe. Rich had been a member of ?Days Gone By' who had notably toured with All That Remains. The two recruited Vaz Curpen on lead guitars and John Malzone on bass to become original members of UVT.

Levi Ali completed the puzzle by joining the band on drums.
The band fired out of the gates recording two full length albums that touched upon political, spiritual, and relationship struggles. The band started playing numerous live shows to establish and grow their fan-base.
UVT has shared the stage with well-known acts such as Ice Nine Kills (Ferret), Dr. Acula (Victory), Signal The Escape, and Remember Tomorrow.
In mid 2010 the band went back into the studio to record their latest album ?Seven Stations? which was released in March 2011.
UVT makes it a point to connect with their fan base and always keep them close by their side. They know without the support their music falls on deaf ears. The band continues to work hard to make a name for themselves. If nothing else, their sheer determination, will make them successful.

**YouTube video - History of Us Versus Them, Boston, MA, USA** A quick look at the evolution and history of the Boston based band Us Versus Them founded in 1999 by singer/songwriter/producer Matt Romero... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZcVGFQtENM
This Us Versus Them is actually the second iteration of the original UVT created by Matt Romero in 1999 and the first band lineup formed in 2006 you can hear the original trio's rock debut with After The Drama here on Last.FM as well
As for this metal lineup featuring Tim Lillis on drums, Rich Noe and Vaz Curpen on guitars and John Malzone on bass (of course Matt on vocals/lyrics) was formed in early 2007 and the group released 2 full-length albums to positive reviews and much fanfare. 'We Will Expire' and 'Unknown Futures' both received some attention from the metal community and the band played shows until end of 2008 where the lack of promotion and label search slowed the band down to eventual end and UVT was forever gone for good.
Matt Romero has gone on to pursue a solo career releasing 2 studio EPs (search 61 for him) and the rest of the band went on to form 'Dead Light Inside' a harder hitting metal band playing around the east coast currently with a new singer.
