Scream, dance, reminisce and dream along with Son of Rust as we take you on an intimate, expansive and sometimes frightening electronic journey through a multitude of electronic and rock styles.
Out of the thousands of indie bands out there, Son of Rust stands out as an emerging internet phenomena. Before ever releasing a CD, they were recieving over 20,000 plays a month on MP3.COM and appeared on two of the now defunct Riffage.com's "best of..." CD's. With the launch of "Six Years", they plan to begin their first ever live performances and "real life" promotion.
What is Son of Rust? It's "A unique, fresh sounding artist with depth, emotion, and a style of their own - a genre busting pop groove that stands alone and yet remains accessible. A beat to dance to, or a hard lyric line to scream along with - it's all right here." - Indie Electronic Online (2001). Listeners compare Son of Rust to bands like New Order, Nine Inch Nails, Garbage, and Depeche Mode.
The heart and soul of Son of Rust is Justin Coope, composer arranger, lead vocalist and producer. Ben Purdy adds much needed critique and vocal embellishment, as well as lead guitar accompaniment. Guest vocalists such as Cameron Cartier and Micheal Pacheco round out the mix.
