LOUDER, HARDER, and HEAVIER than their debut, 16 SECOND STARE breaks new sonic ground with their new self-titled album releasing April 27 on Goomba Music.
With the aggressive sound of their new self-titled record, 16 SECOND STARE is ready to take their place in the vanguard of the international metal scene. Fueled by the ferocious vocals of Chris Davis, who stepped out from behind his drum kit to prowl the stage like a madman, and driven by the onslaught of guitarist Angry Tim Shanks, the band has been winning legions of fans with its uncompromising stage show. During the summer of 2009, on the road with Crüefest 2, 16 SECOND STARE showed what they were made of winning over huge crowds with their radical onslaught. Now they’re unleashing an equally radical album.
16 SECOND STARE took a year to make and, during that time, the band underwent a transformation. “I started singing lead and everything clicked into place,’ says singer and drummer Chris Davis. “We used to think about radio play, but this time decided to go for the jugular. We’re going to get right up in your face and if people like it, that’s fine. If not, fuck’em. Anyone who’s seen us live knows we kick ass, so we decided to kick ass in the studio too. Making Chris the singer was the best move we ever made.”
Standout tracks on 16 SECOND STARE include the current single, Bonnie and Clyde, a heavy stomping rocker, with the grinding guitars of Shanks complimenting the processed vocals Davis lays down over his own brutal backbeat. The shrieking harmonies of Davis and Shanks add another sinister element to the mix. Bonnie and Clyde is already being played on Sirius Satellite’s Octane channel, AOL’s Extreme Alt Rock station, and is climbing the Media Base Active Rock chart.
