Johnson City, TN’s Star City Meltdown has signed with Standby Records (Black Veil Brides, Modern Day Escape). The band’s label debut 'Razorblades & Handgrenades' was produced by former Creed bassist Brett Hestla (Framing Hanley, Dark New Day, Tantric) and is scheduled for release in November. Joining the lineup as the newest member of the band is former Black Veil Brides guitarist, Chris Stewart.
With an explosive stage show, an uncompromising confidence, and a sound described as "Journey meets Avenged Sevenfold", this 5 piece rock act has been winning over audiences everywhere they perform. The band’s 2009 debut album “Stick in the Eye” (also produced by Hestla) and a tour with Saliva gained the band a rabid underground fanbase, which spurred impressive sales through live shows alone.
Watch for Star City Meltdown to build on their earlier success with upcoming shows supporting Art of Dying, Crossfade, and Korn. Headline dates and festival appearances will round out the band’s touring schedule through the rest of 2011.
