The Sawtooth Grin is a mathcore[1] band from Montrose, New York, formed in 1999. The group's first and only official release, Cuddlemonster, was put out on the now defunct label Dead by 1918 in 2001.[2] Pervavor, a three track EP, was later recorded and intended to be released on CD format; however, due to the group's disbandment in late 2004 it was only released as a free download on their website. In late 2009, the band got back together and began work on new material, recruiting Jon Karel of The Number Twelve Looks Like You fame as the new drummer and Kevin Lowney as the new bassist.[3]

In 2012, the group announced that they had begun work on a new full-length titled Jabberwocky;[4] however, an album never surfaced. Demo material written and recorded during that period has leaked onto the Internet, being referred to by fans as JabberWocky's Demos. Also announced in 2012 were plans to press Cuddlemonster on vinyl; however, much like Jabberwocky it was never released.[5] The band silently broke up later that year, partially due to scheduling conflicts, and members have gone on to claim that it is unlikely for a second reunion to happen since each member is now working on different projects and have families.[6]
