Tom LaSala (born November 5th, 1987) was a founding member of metalcore band The Resurrection and has played in countless bands within that genre including Bela Kiss, Disarming Arctica and If He Dies.
In 2009, he started the post-industrial group, Electric Caves. The group has gone on to do well internationally in the underground music scene. It wasn’t until 2011 that the band would release their debut full length ‘Solace Furnace Transformation’. The album cracked into diverse homes from within government whistleblowers, environmental groups, anarchists, and the entheogen community alike. Upon networking within those communities, Electric Caves has been invited as an artist to participate in Horizons: Perspectives On Psychedelics, Hour Of The Time’s East Coast Researchers Conference, Occupy Wall St. NYC’s Think-Tank, The NYC Anarchist Book Fair, and the distressed rust-belt town of Braddock, PA. The group continues to captivate live audiences sharing the stage with a diverse range of acts from Philadelphia’s post-metal giants, Rosetta to electro kingpin CX KidtroniK (Atari Teenage Riot, Saul Williams/Trent Reznor collaborator). On September 21st, 2014 ‘History of Illusion’ found itself a DIY-release with further exploration into the psych through the realms of post industrial, illbient, ambient drone, krautrock, big beat, world music, and shoegaze.2015 will see the band working with legendary Martin Bisi (Swans, Sonic Youth) of BC Studios on their follow up record with James Plotkin (ISIS, Jesu, Earth, SunnO))) handling the mastering.
