Jerk was an industrial metal band from Sydney, Australia, comprised of Johnathan Devoy (vocals), Lamar Lowder (drums), Charles Cilia (guitar) and Leeno Dee (bass). They released a self-titled 6 track EP in 2001, which led to an appearance at the long-running Metal For The Brain festival in Canberra in 2001. In April 2002, they got signed to Sony Records. Their full-length debut album, When Pure Is Defiled, was released in 2003. Music videos were produced for “I Hate People Like That”, “Just What You Need”, and “My Friends All Lie”. These videos received heavy rotation on popular Australian music television station Channel V and the band also played live on that channel a few times. Jerk’s first exposure to the North American market came when their song “Sucked In” was featured in the soundtracks of the video games NHL 2004 and Need for Speed: Underground. Soon after, the band broke up in 2004.

Jonathan (original vocalist), Charles, and Leeno have since teamed up with Zotty Cilia (drummer) and Brendan Marcii Ebens (guitars) to form Ink. Sounding very different from their original band Jerk, they have mainly lost their industrial roots. Ink has since release an EP and a studio album called Black Water Reign.
