7 MiLE STARE is the NEW sound of East Coast Rock! This diverse band from Dartmouth, NS is tearing up the local scene and with the release of their debut Independent album, they've proved they are the "real deal." The music speaks for itself! The idea for 7 MiLE STARE began in late 2009 with front man Chris Ricketson and drummer Rick Ruth. After playing around on the open mic scene as an acoustic duo, Ricketson and Ruth would officially form the band in February 2010 after adding friends Donnie Watson, Michael Cormier & Darren Crandall. Immediately, 7 MiLE STARE was generating a buzz on the music scene with Ricketson's powerful vocals and the bands high energy performance. The STARE soon began to establish a following, which would come to be known as the 7 MiLE ARMY, and from here the future success of the band.
In March, after only 2 months as a complete band, 7 MiLE STARE would quickly attract the attention of award winning producer Dennis Field of Denmark Productions, who would enlist the band as part of the line up for the Halifax Plugged - In 9 compilation album. The album, featuring "Upside Down" and "OVERATED" was released Friday May 14th, 2010 and is set to be the launch pad of their career. To date, "Upside Down" has gained radio play all across Canada as their success continues to grow as an Indie band. 7 MiLE STARE would soon lose member Donnie Watson over the summer; however, they would continued playing as a four piece, rocking the east coast music scene with an intensity, charisma and sound that keep people wanting MORE.
After being labeled by many as, "The New Sound of the East Coast," they set to record their debut album in June. In a few short months, these four brothers from different corners of the country, had accomplished something magical. The Independent release of their debut album "Organized Chaos" has been welcomed with great reviews coast to coast. Now its time to share it with the world!! "Rock hard and lets build the ARMY!"
