So is the Tongue is a progressive/experimental 3 piece from central New Jersey formed in the fall of 2005 by Ron Varod (guitar/vocals) and Justin Thouret (drums) and now includes Greg Meisenberg (bass).
Since winter of 2006... So Is The Tongue have been playing clubs, bars, basements and other DIY spaces in tri-state area with such bands as Kayo Dot (with whom guitarist/vocalist Ron Varod is a part time member), Cleric, Behold…The Arctopus, Unearthly Trance, East of the Wall, Dysrhythmia, Bloody Panda, A Fucking Elephant, and the Jerry Only fronted “Misfits” to name a few.
So is the Tongue recorded their debut album “Torpid & Blight” over the course of a year on the top floor of a jersey shore mansion with good friend, and honorary 4th member, (Asian) Steve Ryan. The album was released in 2007 digitally and as a small CD-R pressing before it’s official release on Sound Devastation Records in 2009.
In January 2011 So is the Tongue ventured into the studio with Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice) to record their follow up, a Child of Divorce.
