Since forming in Atlanta, GA over 15 years ago, instrumental electronic rock band STS9 has experienced an unceasing meteoric rise to the forefront of the international music scene.
STS9 is Hunter Brown (guitar/sequences), Jeffree Lerner (percussion), David Phipps (keyboards/synths) and Zach Velmer (drums) and Alana Rocklin (bass).
From headlining stages at America’s largest festivals, to selling out shows around the country as an acoustic set-up in legendary opera houses or as an electronic rock act in amphitheatres, to even performing with the likes of Jay-Z in arenas, to running their own record label, 1320 RECORDS, STS9 truly does it all. The band consistently lands themselves on Pollstar Magazines top touring charts in the country, with recent average attendance of over 5,000 fans per city.
In 2015, fans will be treated to STS9’s largest touring production rig ever, using the latest cutting edge sound and lighting to deliver one of the most visually stunning shows on the road today with undeniable sound to match it.
The band’s last studio EP, WHEN THE DUST SETTLES (the eleventh album in their full discography), keeps with XLR8R Magazine’s exclamation that STS9 is "one of the country's most intriguing, innovative outfits around.” It debuted at #1 on the iTunes Electronic Charts and in Billboard’s Top 25.
STS9’s self-owned record label, 1320 RECORDS was founded on the principles of collaboration, cooperation, and community. The goal is clear: bring the music to the people in the most conscious, unique innovative and savvy ways possible. 1320 currently boasts over 300,000 unique downloads and over 1,000 releases by over 100 artists including Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Big Gigantic, ESKMO, The Glitch Mob plus dozens more.
