Bang Camaro Announces National Distribution Deal With Fontana/Universal And Recording Contract With 8th Impression Music
Performance on Late Night With Conan O’Brien in January
December 19th – New York, NY – Metal powerhouse, Bang Camaro has just signed a recording deal with Ramsey Dean's 8th Impression Music out of Chicago which is a division of Spank Music, one of the nation's top advertising music agencies. The label is nationally distributed through Fontana/Universal and will release the group’s explosive sophomore album Bang Camaro II on January 13th. The band will also kick off 2009 with a performance on Late Night w/ Conan O’Brien on January 6th.
The band continues to make big moves in the video game world. The track “Revolution” will be featured in the highly anticipated The Sims 3 coming out in February. The track “Night Lies” was featured in the wildly successful Rock Band II. 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. Rock Band’s developers have also chosen the band to exclusively unveil The Starter Kit which creates a light and smoke effect that synchronizes with the music for the ultimate rock star effect. The program is sure to be a big seller this holiday season which will add to the band’s buzz.
Resonating with various audiences, their new song, "Rock Rebellion" is featured in the newly released Teton Gravity Research(TGR),16mm & HD Ski and Snowboard film Under The Influence. This is the second year in a row that TGR has picked Bang Camaro's music as a part of their award winning extreme skiing and snowboarding films.Formed by Alex Necochea and Bryn Bennett, the philosophy behind Bang Camaro was to recreate that anthem rock sound 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 the paper The Boston Phoenix.
