Cletus Cletus is a new American alternative rock trio based in Stamford, CT. The group formed in 2011 when singer/songwriter/guitarist Quinn Carpanzano, and Matthew Foran (Bass, Keyboards) two members of the cult metal phenomenon Mantyhose, joined acclaimed rock drummer Martin Stroh (Frank Enea Band, Big White Ass) to form an experimental project called "Cletus and his Tings" (later shortened to "Cletus"). For the past year, the band held the coveted Wednesday Night Residency at the notorious Connecticut Rock Club "The Fez" building a grass roots following on the strength of their live shows. Cletus now tours across the Northeast playing their eclectic blend of music and fast-paced original songs. The band is currently recording it's debut EP at Carriage House Studios (The Pixies, Derek Trucks) slated to be self-released in December 2012.
