The Character Assassins, a local hard rock/metal band, will open the WMC World Championships tomorrow.


The local band Character Assassins will be the opening act at the World Muaythai Council World Championships at Saugus Speedway tomorrow.

The hard rock/metal band was formed in early 2006 and band members are: Aaron Levario, vocals; Mark Benz, guitar/backup vocals; Jim Riggi, bass/backup vocals; and Andy Martino on drums.

The band's lyrics convey personal introspection, social injustices and "anything that invokes a reaction." It has played numerous shows in Los Angeles and surrounding areas, and also made it to the semi finals of the Emergenza Music Festival, bringing more than 100 people on a Tuesday night.

The band has recently finished its new three-song demo and will be going into the studio this fall to record a full length CD. Hoping to capitalize on its local success, the band is also starting to play shows outside of California. With influences ranging from Pantera, to Hatebreed, to Suicidal Tendencies, to Lamb of God, the Character Assassins "are not going to compromise and will definitely leave a trail behind them. Look out for their ‘Retribution.'" Contact the Character Assassins at

The World Muaythai Council World Championship fights will be held at Saugus Speedway, 22500 Soledad Canyon Road, Saugus, CA 91350 on Saturday, Aug. 14. Gates open at 4 p.m. For tickets and information visit
