State Line Empire
Hailing from California, State Line Empire - Tyson (Vocals); Cat (Guitar); Dave (Bass); Jay (Drums) – has been tearing up and down the West Coast with their new brand of no holds barred straight up rock n roll. Add a bit of metal with catchy melody and you have a powerful combination of – looks n hooks that rock.
Meet the band – formed in 2010 – and after a whirlwind first few months of songwriting, the guys found that an exciting chemistry had emerged and the band was born. Making their journey even more exciting was being chosen as the winners of Guitar Center’s Your Next Record with Slash, the groundbreaking unsigned artist discovery program.
The outfit recorded a 4-song EP “Octane” with iconic producer Mike Clink (Guns N’ Roses, Mötley Crüe, Megadeth) with Slash performing on the lead single “Drive Me.” Association with James Michael (Sixx AM) helped develop “More of You” that is included on the original EP as well as being heard on ESPN. Not stopping to rest, the band has gone on to create 2 additional songs that rock hard “Makes You Brave” and “Load Em Up” - available for digital download on iTunes.
The 9ELECTRIC sound is ELECTRONIC METAL.
9E colors their soundscape with cutting edge dance/electronic influences like Skrillex, Nero, Pendulum and The Prodigy, blending the digital mayhem with industrial-rock grooves reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Rammstein, and Static-X.
In February of 2011, the Hollywood based quartet unveiled this new sound in their premiere show at The Roxy Theatre. In their short career, 9ELECTRIC has developed a manic, high energy performance style accompanied by go-go dancers, custom lighting, and synched video projections.
It's a dance party that rocks!
9E recently brought their live show on tour with Island Records recording artists American Head Charge, gaining legions of fans who have taken to the internet and spread 9ELECTRIC's songs and videos like a virus. As of April 2012, 9E videos have been viewed over 800,000 times on YouTube, and 9E have over 10,000 fans on Facebook.
In April, 2012, 9E released their first single DESTROY AS YOU GO - featuring guest vocals by Wayne Static (Static-X) – to online retailers including iTunes. The single was also added to radio stations across the US including some national satellite stations.
Long-theorized brainchild of Billy, former Jetboy & American Heartbreak guitarist; a real no bullshit Rock Band out for nothing more nor less than a good time. And some booze. With members of Exodus, Ruffians, and Immigrant on various instruments.
