Dan and Brian first met while they were working at a not-to-be-mentioned yogurt factory; their job was to assure that each batch of yogurt had the appropriate consistency and texture. They didn‘t speak to each other much- Dan was too tall, and Brian‘s ever-changing hair color were causes of conversational anxieties. However, upon bumping into each other at a Dinosaur Jr. cover band show, they realized they had more in common than previously expected. They decided to form a band- Yogurt Smoothness, named after the one thing they knew the best, hoping it would inspire them to write music they could listen to while toiling in the yogurt production line, staring blankly into the relentless gobs of bacteria, that would keep them from wanting to dunk their heads into the vats and just end it all.
In 2008, they independently recorded and released “Live Cultures: Vol. 1“, a six song live EP with a limited run of 90 copies. In February 2010, Yogurt Smoothness released “The Diamond Through the Bees”, their debut full-length studio album- another independently created, limited first-run of 200. The digital version of the album can, however, be purchased worldwide through iTunes and various other internet music stores. Having been holed up in a studio for eight months, Yogurt Smoothness is eager to promote its latest release by taking it on tour.
