Poopie Sanchez


Poopie Sanchez started playing drums at age 16 or so during the summer time of 7th grade as a hobby and because drums were so interesting to him. During 9th or 10th grade thumbscrew was formed with Daniel Maldonado and Cousin Derek Gonzalez who are still in the band as of now. The band was just something fun at first and was just to keep us doing something positive but after a while we were destined to play big shows
and to pursue his and the bands music career and sothe goal was set.


As far as drummers go Chris Pennie of dillinger escape plan and Ben Koller from Converge or really just any kind of drummer who is jazz influenced or just really tech has really helped his style out alot and helped him shine out from the rest. Poopie has only played drums for thumbscrew full time but at once played drums for a metalcore band from tx called They Came Burning with former guitar player  Jason Hale who now plays guitar in Chiodos, and alot of success has came to him and the band. With years of drum experience and playing Poopie recently started a drum company making an amazing assortment of drums at an affordable price. www.myspace.com/xmilitiacustomsx

As said before Poopie is known for his intense drum technique and hard playing in Thumbscrew and is known for his weird fills and crazy stage show that people find really enjoyable and entertaining and what brings kids back for more. Thumbscrew was first signed to Counter Intellegence  which is now a pretty nice sized label and now signed to Imagine it which is where theband lies now.


Poopie’s style is best described as really jazzy and really intense and “pissed off” is what he likes to call it. The Beats are really simple they seem, but, they are used in really weird timings and situations in songs  which makes the music and the drums stand out more. Thumbscrew will continue to tour and Poopie shall continue to play until he possibly cant anymore
