Tired of not being able to go anywhere in the Chicago area to enjoy the beautiful sounds of The Smiths and Morrissey, vocalist Joseph De La Mora and his band Terraforma decided to give it a shot in 2008. Originally just for an ICON show with other bands paying tribute to the likes of DM, the Cure and Joy Division. The chance to emulate the Smiths and Moz was just too addictive to do just once. Thus, The Handsome Devilz were born to bring to life the live sound that was once the Smiths and still is Morrissey. Striving as time passes to resurrect as many songs as possible from the catalog of The Smiths and Moz. For all to enjoy.
