1. How did the band come together?
Hello, I’m Tony Pettry the founder and guitar player for Shattered. I was in a great groove metal band and decided that I wanted to play something heavier which comes natural to me. So, I started Shattered and its been quite a ride.

I would say when Shattered went on tour with Fractured Fairytales and got to enjoy so
many great cities and spending time with my brothers.

When coming to a Shattered concert you better be ready for not only us giving it all we
got on stage but a laser show and many stage props to get the crowd involved.

you have not met anyone, then who do you want to meet the most?
