The website notes Marth joined the band in 2005, four years after Brandon Flowers and Co. started playing together. Marth played on albums Sam's Town and Day & Age before joining them as a touring member in 2008. E! also says Marth played with Vegas bands the Big Friendly Corporation and Black Camaro.
