Trashlight Vision was a trash punk band from the United States. They featured the guitarist from Murderdolls, Acey Slade and Steve Haley from the Philadelphia-based rock band HALEY.

The band released their debut album in April 2006 on UnderGroove Records in the UK, entitled "Alibis and Ammunition". The album features 11 original songs as well as a cover of the Ramones song "My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down (Bonzo Goes to Bitburg)".[1][2]

After releasing "Alibis and Ammunition", Trashlight Vision gained a strong and increasingly big fanbase and toured many different countries including their home country, various parts of Europe, the United Kingdom and Japan. The band's last ever Glasgow (Scotland) date was the only UK show to be filmed in its entirety and was filmed by GUILTY.x.DESIGN Productions.

Trashlight Vision signed with Rock Ridge Music in the USA and released Alibis and Ammunition in the United States on July 10, 2007.

The group disbanded on September 12, 2007.[3]

On 18 August 2011 the band announced that they would reunite with the original line-up to play a single show in Philadelphia, PA, on 29 September 2011.[4] The show was set up as a benefit show for drummer Jonny Chops who underwent emergency surgery to remove a brain tumour in July 2011.
