From PLANK63's inception they decided to go their own way, stepping out from the lines and moving in their own direction not concerning themselves with fitting into the local scene or the current trends in music. Driven by their desire to write songs they would be proud of, they wanted to create something that would stand the test of time and not get lost in the changing winds of what is popular right now and then forgotten about tomorrow. They wanted something that would proudly influence the sound of other bands and that people could attach themselves to. Their goal has always been to create music for the masses, easily marketable songs that would make their way onto chart topping hard rock radio, music that would pound through car stereos and choruses that would be sung with raised hands in the arenas.
Their previous CD, Divisional, gained them instant attention in the New England rock scene. Their songs and their name were quickly adopted by many of the local major market DJ's, receiving airplay, hype and much respect. Soon they were packing venues with enthusiastic fans, being offered local shows with national acts and being courted by club managers to headline their best nights.
With the release of their new CD, Symmetry, Plank63 is embarking on a new journey. You can hear it in their music, their performance, and their words. More aggressive, energized and focused than ever, they have widened their range and market appeal. With the release of Symmetry's first single, Patchwork, Plank63 has made an undeniable statement. Patchwork remained in the Top 3 of the Hard Rock category of Garageband.com for a record-breaking length of time. They have received countless national and international inquiries about them and their music. Scores of companies releasing compilation CDs have sought out to include Patchwork in their marketing materials. It's even been adopted by some local sports organizations as a their unofficial theme song.
The band prides itself on being more than just a solid writing and recording machine, but a powerful dominating live act to be reckoned with too. Much of their reputation has been spread due to their intense and exhausting live show, where they adopted the saying: "Bring it and leave everything you've got onstage." They are something to see and experience, not just heard.
There are bands you like, there are bands you love, and then there are the bands that become a part of you.
