The Sloppy Meateaters a.k.a. SME are a North American punk band from Rome, Georgia. The band was formed in July 1999 by founding members Josh Chambers and Kevin Highfield.[1][2]


Origins (1999)[edit]

In October 1999, the Sloppy Meateaters recorded their debut album, Shameless Self-Promotion.[3] The album was first released without a record label in December 1999. After playing to an audience of over a million viewers on the now-cancelled USA Network show, the band had hit a break.[4][2]

Sloppy Meateaters released Forbidden Meat in early 2001 on Orange Peal Records.[1] The band spent the entire year touring in support of the new album, booking all of the tours themselves.[2] SME played one show at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, did a week on the Warped tour, and ended the tour in fall 2001 by crashing their van into a police car on the interstate.

Band Members Change, New Band, Reunite (2002-2005)[edit]

By the following spring, SME did a number of tours at this time including the Vans Warped Tour. Highfield decided to leave the band in late 2002 and Chambers felt it was better to retire the name instead of continuing on without him.[5][1][2]
