8MM continue West Coast tour

Husband/wife duo featuring Grammy-nominated producer/mixer Sean Beavan(Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, No Doubt) and Stop Staring! celebrity model Juliette Beavan, 8MM are gearing up for their inaugural full-band national tour. Building on their already all-star lineup, the Beavans called on Tim Kelleher (30 Seconds To Mars, My Darling Murder) to slide and slither on the bass and Elias Mallin (Ke$ha, Kill Hannah, My Darling Murder) to add power to the sexy on the drums. The tour will kick off at The Griffin in San Diego on October 30th followed by their wedding anniversary celebration show on Halloween (yes, they were married on Halloween) at The 3 Clubs in their hometown of Los Angeles and continue up and then down the West Coast.

Lead vocalist Juliette was very adamant about self-releasing their new album Between The Devil And Two Black Hearts: “We refuse to believe that, in order to make the music that continues to earn a place in your heart, we must dip ourselves in sugar and plastic of a color that a corporate image consultant chooses." "Our music is about grit and glamour," echoes Sean. Utilizing Sean’s production expertise and fueled by famous backers including Marilyn Manson, legendary author/activist Margaret Atwood, actress/singer Jill Hennessy (Law & Order, Crossing Jordan), and actress Kate Moennig (The L Word, Young Americans) among many others, the band raised a total of $39,503 via Kickstarter. Now, it’s time to fill their end of the bargain – touring.

Championed by some of the industry’s leading tastemakers, such as Nic Harcourt of KCRW, and being named one of the Bands You Need To Know in Alternative Press, and a “Buzz Band” by the Los Angeles Times, 8MM’s music has been featured on Grey’s Anatomy, One Tree Hill, Shark , Underworld: Awakening, Nip Tuck, Nikita, and the Mr. And Mrs. Smith soundtrack, amongst many others. Sean’s credits as a much sought-out producer/mixer include Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, No Doubt, Slayer, Thrice, and Depeche Mode. Juliette Beavan has been has been tapped as a celebrity model for the popular red carpet line, Stop Staring!, joining other celebrity A-listers, such as Nicole Kidman, Eva Mendes, Trisha Yearwoood, Christina Aguilera and Meg White (White Stripes).

8MM is Juliette Beavan (vocals) and multi-instrumentalist Sean Beavan (vocals, guitar). Their fifth studio album Between The Devil And Two Black Hearts was released on September 15, 2012 via ChelseaGirl Records.
