Stars In Stereo Announce Tour With Hoobastank/debut Album Coming
Refusing to slow down, L.A. based Stars in Stereo are enjoying a summer of relentless touring, recently they wrapped up a sold out tour with The Used and currently on the road with Foxy Shazam, the band will join Hoobastank for a trek of July dates in anticipation of their self-titled debut album coming later this year.
Stars in Stereo are: Bec Hollcraft: Lead vocals, Jordan McGraw: Guitar, Justin Siegel: Bass, Ryan “Frogs” McCormack: Guitar, Drew Langan: Drums. With their live show the quintet comes out swinging as they bring a flurry of pummeling rhythms, clench-fisted chords and meaty hooks that connect with each listen as they deliver fast, catchy and sexy rockn’roll. “the tempos were paced at turbo rate yet the crowd fell in love with the combination of sex, punk and stage diving that Stars in Stereo brought” – Noise Image
The Examiner.com says of the band’s first single, The Broken, available now at iTunes “The complexity of this very upbeat song THE BROKEN had me swaying as it played. As in life, it isn't always clear what is broken, but it is usually us.” “That’s our mission statement,” explains guitarist McGraw of the song, inspired by the website postsecret.com, a place for those who wish to share their innermost fears and phobias anonymously. “Everyone is broken in their own way. Instead of seeing it as something isolating, or a reason to be put down, it unifies us with everyone else.” says McGraw.
The band’s beliefs are clear on the songs from their upcoming album out later this year, “It’s all about, if you’re going down, we’re coming with you,” says McGraw. “If we’re going to lose it, we’ll do it together. It’s a ‘live for the team/die for the team mentality.”
That one-for-all and all-for-one mentality saturates the live show as well, as they win over crowds and leave the masses singing along. “I always love seeing a band put aside the popularity contest associated with the music industry to genuinely rock out with one another and their audience” says Social Symphonies.
