Louder, Harder, and Heavier Than Ever, 16 Second Stare Breaks New Sonic Ground as Drummer Chris Davis Steps Out as the Band's Lead Singer Tearing The Stage Up With His Potent Vocals
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 music 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 "The Judge" 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 of thousands with their radical onslaught. Now they're unleashing an equally radical album.
16 Second Stare has taken a major 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. The LIVE show kicks ass! 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 potent vocals of Davis, brutal beats written and recorded during CrueFest. The shrieking harmonies of Davis and Shanks add another sinister element to the mix. Bonnie and Clyde, written on Crue Fest, all about raising Mayhem 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.
