ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nominated "Rock Album of the Year" L A Music Awards

"Any Race Of Man" Inspirational Song of the Year and nominated for Rock Single of the Year by L A Music Awards

Sixty 8 sounds like a band you’ve heard before, but you just can’t figure out who it is. This is because Sixty 8 incorporates many elements from classic metal and rock bands of the past into their new songs. Sixty 8 refers to their genre as Retro-Metal or Nu-Classic Rock. The band came together in 2004 and released their self titled EP later that year. Becoming famous was never the objective. Sixty 8 just wants to play and write what they were not hearing on radio and then test it out on live audiences.

After playing out quite a bit over the next couple of years, the band’s sound matured. The bands writing became more diverse as each band member added more of their past influences into the mix. Sixty 8 really hit stride in 2007 when they received a series of positive endorsements from licensing groups, promoters and online radio. The band’s song “Over” was played in over 6,000 movie theaters prior to Spiderman 3. Sixty 8’s song “I Won’t Play” was featured at the 2008 Midem Convention in Cannes, France and recently their song “Alone” was added to the DVD/Online release of an episode of the WB’s show “Everwood.”

Sixty 8’s most recent effort is their full-length CD “Before The Fall.” The 12 song disc encapsulates a 5 year period and shows how the band has diversified over the course of time. What makes this disc compelling is the stylistic differences between each song and that every cut has its own atmosphere. Sixty 8 can tone it down and take comfort in melodic dwellings and then turn around and blow up everything in their path with the next song. There may be no rhyme or reason for how one song relates to the next, but Sixty 8 makes each song a member of the same tribe. The first cut “Blood Red Sky” has already received airplay. For those of you who feel that we have left behind some of the better attributes of our musical past, Sixty 8 may well be your connection.

Sixty 8 Press
DangerDog.com / - Craig Hartranft
“…This is simply solid American melodic hard rock and metal they way it should be done. I knew it existed somewhere. Why people wallow in the mud of Hinder and Nickelback when they could be living in the green grass and high tides of Sixty 8, I'll never understand. We just got to get the word out.”

Rock Zone Productions / Jason Houston
“…Do yourself a favor and pick up their latest release Before The Fall and you'll become an instant Sixty 8 fan as I did.”

MuzikReviews.com / Susan Evani –
“…suddenly Sixty-8 sounds a bit like Whitesnake, in a good way, crafting homage.

Rock Report
"Before The Fall' is a highly enjoyable cocktail of Dokken, Whitesnake and Skid Row all jamming together in the beginning of the 90's"

Sam Mc Caslin / Retrospect Records –
“I gotta say - I am very impressed with the songs / the band.”

Fireworks Magazine / Nicky Baldrain –
“…the band needs to get this sent over to the indy rock labels pronto.”

HM Magazine "Appreciate the musicianship and the vocals, too...Love the guitar tones..."

Keith "Muzik Man" Hannaleck -
"Rockin' guitar and powerful vocals, love it!"

Mastering God Brian “Big Bass” Gardner (2 Pac, Avenged Sevenfold, Beck, David Bowie, George Harrison, Jay Z, Christina Aguilera, Jimi Hendrix, Madonna, Prince, Queen, Rush, Van Halen etc.) -
“Good stuff!”

Producer Rob Tarango (Lynch Mob, When Darkness Falls, Souls Of We, Tiffany) says "Like the tunz!"

Fireworks Magazine / Sonia Waterfield –
“This is certainly an album that I will be adding to my collection due to
its impressive quality throughout.”





Babylon Magazine (Italy)
“Before the Fall is done in a variety of styles that makes it a special and original album, the bands talent is beyond dispute.”
