Diffuser Biography

The Alternative-Rock band Diffuser started out in 1994 in Long Island, New York USA, performing and recording under the moniker Flu Thirteen with Tomas Costanza on vocals + guitar, Anthony Cangelosi on guitar, Lawrence Sullivan on bass and Billy Alemaghides on drums.

In 2000, the band released a teaser of one new song entitled "Karma", which appeared on the "Mission Impossible II" soundtrack. With a bigger, more structured, melodic sound, "Karma" made the top 30 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart and hit #20 on The Mainstream Rock Tracks. But fans would have to wait patiently over a year for Diffuser's full-length major label debut. Released in January 2001 on Hollywood Records, "Injury Loves Melody" was supported for approximately 18 months with live appearances with such acts as Toadies, SR-71 and Simple Plan.

Taking some much needed rest in 2002, Diffuser began writing again and was ready for a new sonic challenge, more melodies and Pop elements thrown into the mix. Ten months and sixty songs later, Costanza and Cangelosi had a box set of new tracks to pick from as well as some additional changes to their line-up, Pete Schojan on bass and Dan Leo behind the drum set. Midway through 2003, the quartet issued its second album, "Making The Grade" and the accompanying single/video "Get It On". In support of the album, the band toured nationwide with additional dates overseas first opening for Hoobastank and The All-American Rejects. Poor sales saw them dropped by their label, Hollywood Records and in 2004 the members of Diffuser decided to call it a day.

Based on overwhelming support and interest from a small but loyal following, Costanza, Cangelosi, Schojan, Leo along with additional guitarist Keith Hille, reunited in the fall of 2007 to record songs for a new Diffuser album. Entitled "Sincerely, Wasting Away", it was released on Chamberlain Records in August 2008.
