Miniaturized was founded in 2021 as a one-off project for a MusiCares charity show honoring Tom Petty. Guitarist/vocalist Timothy Joseph (Buckfast Superbee, The Palace Ballroom, Phasers on Stun) decided to continue the project, recruiting drummer Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless, Rocket from the Crypt, Hot Snakes), drummer Chris Prescott (Pinback, No Knife), bassist Brian Desjean (No Knife, Mistress 77) and bassist Chris Torres (Ron Blair band, Chris Torres Band). They made their concert debut at the Casbah in July 2022.
Their singles "Why Don’t We Play God," "Cave In," and "The Most" preceded a self-titled debut album that dropped in March 2023, recorded and produced by Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Pavement, Wilco).
