San Diego-based band miniaturized are pleased to share "The Most" the latest single to be released from their self-titled debut album out March 31 (pre-save). "The Most" and its accompanying lyric video debuted today at The Alternative and the song will be on all streaming platforms on Tuesday for any playlist shares.

On the song the band's guitarist/vocalist Timothy Joseph says, "'The Most' comes from personal experience involving the perpetually downward cycle of addiction. For those who have been through it or love someone who has, it's a dark world unto itself.  However, there is hope and help out there if you reach for it."

miniaturized is made up of guitarist/vocalist Timothy Joseph (Buckfast Superbee, The Palace Ballroom, Phasers on Stun), drummers Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless, Rocket from the Crypt, Hot Snakes), Chris Prescott (Pinback, No Knife), bassists Brian Desjean (No Knife, Mistress 77) and Chris Torres (Ron Blair band, Chris Torres Band). 

Born in 2021 from members of some of San Diego's most cherished acts, miniaturized was initially formed as a one-off project for a MusiCares charity show honoring Tom Petty. The band's Timothy Joseph found inspiration from dissecting Petty’s songwriting, coming to revelations about his own work as a musician in the process. With a sudden fresh perspective, he began composing all  original material that would shape the future of the band into something all its  own. miniaturized is, at its core, a rock band. Still, the sound is so sweeping and vibrant that it overflows, spilling into the more nuanced realms of pop and indie rock and nods to iconic alternative rock of decades past such as Pixies, Built to  Spill, The Feelies, Jesus and Mary Chain and early R.E.M.

With their live debut at the world famous Casbah in July of 2022, the band has burst into the public eye as something completely new. Their sound has blurred the  lines between the angular, edgy sonics of the members’ previous efforts and  emotional, connective song- craft. The earnest assertion of singer Timothy  Joseph’s voice and lyrics draws listeners in with uncertain familiarity. And with only  a very few select live appearances to their credit so far, their single "miniaturized" in rotation on 91X FM and their emotional video for "Why Don’t We Play God,"  miniaturized has quickly garnered the excitement and attention of a rapidly  growing audience. Their debut LP, due this spring, was recorded and  produced by legendary record producer, Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Pavement, Wilco).
