Drummer Tony Palermo's career in punk rock has spanned several groups. Tony Palermo has played with Pulley, Unwritten Law, Ten Foot Pole, Hot Potty, and Papa Roach.

Tony Palermo joined Unwritten Law in the studio to record 2005's 'Here's to the Mourning.' Tony Palermo worked so well with the band that he joined them as a permanent member on the supporting tour that followed.

Tony Palermo formally joined Papa Roach in 2008, and it is unclear how he will continue to simultaneously drum for Unwritten Law and Papa Roach.
