The Holy Smokes was formed in 2018 out of a chicken coop in West Orange, New Jersey. This four-piece alternative-folk-electric rock band met after being recruited by the CIA to lead a disinformation campaign against the deep state before deciding propaganda was a dying art form, opting instead to play music. The members are Zach Smith (guitar, keys, vox), Ron Seidel (guitar, keys), Angely Melendez (bass, vox), and Mark Steinmetz (drums, vox).
