--Rolling Stone

July 24th   Boston, MA – Bang Camaro, hailed by MTV, Blender, Rolling Stone, Spin, and Billboard as one of the “Top Buzz Bands of the Year” are keeping very busy this summer. The band is gearing up for a new release, a U.S. tour and “Camaro Thursdays”; the release of new music every other Thursday in August through to October  to be unleashed online. The first single “Night Lies” from the forthcoming record is also featured in the hotly anticipated Rock Band II video game. Bang Camaro has also been featured in other popular video games including Guitar Hero II and Rock Band as well as Phase and Titan Quest.

Formed by Alex Necochea and Bryn Bennett, the philosophy behind Bang Camaro was to focus on the big anthemic choruses and screaming guitar solos reminiscent of 80's era metal. What brings the band into the new millennium is the decision to ditch the overdubs and create their huge vocals and distinct harmonies using a choir of 10-20 singers. The end result is just that: big and bombastic whether in the studio or the live show which has been described as "Headbanger's Ball meets the Polyphonic Spree" by their hometown paper The Boston Phoenix.

Alex Necochea says of the upcoming release: "This time around our material is darker and more honest.  I think this comes from spending a year together out on the road, experiencing the country, and learning more about the music industry.  Everything is in such a state of change right now, and I think our involvement with video games has given us a bit of an edge.  It's like we're barbarians conquering Rome, but instead of wealth and glory when we've finished, we just head back to a hotel room with 15 other dudes."

Bang Camaro will be hitting the road this fall in support of the new record and prior to that they will play at Lollapalooza on August 1st kicking off the MySpace stage. Bang Camaro will continue their tradition of recruiting singers from across the nation to join their choir. For this tour, they will join forces with to find some of the best talent in each city.
