Some artists are only associated with one band, while others are linked to several bands. In some cases, a band splits, and its members join other bands, or they decide to switch genres and go separate ways, but there are also situations where artists choose to become part of two groups at the same time. When a band is formed that consists of experienced artists from several other bands, it is often referred to as a supergroup. One example of a supergroup is Gizmodrome, which is a band formed in Milan, Italy, in 2017. There are four band members who are all highly experienced performers with long histories in the music industry. Here is a chance to meet the band members of Gizmodrome.
