With an explosive stage show, uncompromising confidence, and a sound described as “Journey meets Avenged Sevenfold” that will appeal to fans of Staind, Breaking Benjamin and Godsmack, East Tennessee’s STAR CITY MELTDOWN released “Here With You,” the first single from their hotly anticipated sophomore album, on June 5 as a free download, via Microsoft SkyDrive, at http://j.mp/herewithyou.
Also available via scannable QR code on full page ads in the latest issues of Alternative Press, Revolver, AMP, Hails and Horns, Substream and Outburn, “Here With You” appears on the band’s Razorblades and Hand Grenades album due September 25th on Standby Records (Black Veil Brides, Modern Day Escape). The companion music video, directed by Sean Babas, will make its world premiere on BlankTV on June 25 (http://www.blanktv.com/index.php/videos/special-presentations/37-premieres/233-star-city-meltdown-qhere-with-youq).
Standby Records President Neil Sheehan developed the rollout for the single, “Here With You’ seems like the perfect way for Standby Records to kick off the summer! Its addictive hook and passionate lyrics will certainly get stuck in anyone’s head, while its message just oozes the vibe of a typical budding summertime relationship. What better way could we find than to introduce Star City Meltdown to the masses than to offer this excellent song to fans for free? What better way is there to introduce the latest band to our Rock N’ Roll 2.0 movement? Click the link, and Star City Meltdown will be ‘Here With You’.”
Reuniting for round two with former Creed bassist/producer Brett Hestla (Dark New Day, Framing Hanley, Tantric), Razorblades and Hand Grenades is the follow-up to the group’s 2009 release Stick In the Eye which featured the hit single “Ready or Not”.
Star City Meltdown is comprised of singer Brad Dills, guitarist/vocalist Lukas Patterson, bassist Cody Cupp, drummer Dean Andrews Jr. and guitarist Chris Stewart, whom as one of the original members in Black Veil Brides, co-wrote the smash hit “Knives and Pens” which has garnered over 40 million views on You Tube.
Having built a rabid fan base over the past three years while touring with Art of Dying, Saving Abel, Crossfade, Saliva and Korn, Star City Meltdown are locked and loaded to unleash more explosive shows for the remainder of 2012 and well into next year.
