THE PROZACS formed in Wester Massachusetts during September of 2001 as a side project of Jay from THE GRANDPRIXX. After recruiting some local band members, THE PROZACS wrote songs and played a few shows. The spring of 2002 brought the end of THE GRANDPRIXX and THE PROZACS became more than a side project. Line-up changes were made and demos were recorded. In Late 2002, THANKS FOR NOTHING was recorded and then released in the spring of 2003. (with original members Jay on guitar/vocals and Dave on guitar/vocals and the addition of Colin on bass and Marty of THE GRANDPRIXX on drums) Following were several shows, compilation appearances and an East Coast tour with THE VENTS. After the tour brought more line-up changes and the recording of MONSTERS NIGHT OUT...which was released in the summer of 2004 on CHEAPSKATE RECORDS. (with Glenn and Pete of THE PARANOIDS on drums and guitar) THE PROZACS went 3 piece with Jay, Colin and fill-in drummers. As a 3 piece, THE PROZACS toured the East Coast with JOHNIE3 and DARLINGTON...along with a recording and releasing a split 7" with JOHNIE 3 in early 2005. Matty of DANGEROUSLY HAPPY joined on drums in january 2005 and the trio toured to Ohio playing shows with JOHNIE 3 along the way. Also was recorded the songs for future releases of PLAYING THE CHORDS WE LOVE 7" and a split CD with JOHNIE 3. (both looking at a late 2005/early 2006 release on CHEAPSKATE RECORDS) A live album was recorded at CBGB's in NYC with Karl (ex-BLOODBATH and PUSHBUTTON WARFARE) joining on lead gutiar in the spring of 2005 and released on CHEAPSKATE RECORDS. Shortly after, Colin left the band after 3 years on bass and left THE PROZACS 3 piece once again. Karl moved to bass for shows...and writting for the 2nd Full-length album has been focus in late 2005.
