"America is this beautiful, incredible place, but it has a dark underbelly," bassist David Murphy said upon the new album's release. "And even on Peaceblaster's most ethereal songs, there's a darkness that reflects what's going on in society-it ain't all bad, but it ain't all good."
"Music measures the temperature of the people," adds guitarist Hunter Brown. "Consumerism and the corporate media have taken us all down the path of cynicism, apathy, and nihilism. If the message on the new record is anything, it's to blast that shit."Like most jam-oriented bands, live and in person is the best way to experience STS9. Unlike most jambands however, the group's sound doesn't revolve around classic rock-oriented lead guitar, but rather around a collective groove sound where the band's five members come together to form a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Those not familiar with the band's sound can check out some tracks from the new album at STS9's MySpace site.
