Argentinean rock journalist Lucas H. Gordon, who currently resides in Hollywood, California, recently conducted an interview with the Los Angeles band CARBON 9. Watch the chat in three parts below.
Freshly signed to WorldSound Music, CARBON 9 released its new album, "The Bull", on February 24. Mixed by Frank Gryner (ROB ZOMBIE, A PERFECT CIRCLE, TOMMY LEE), the CD manages to balance electro rock sounds with strong pop melodies and anthemic choruses — resulting in a sound that sounds custom-made for crossover success.
Comprised of Stacey Quinealty (vocals and sequencing), Danny Cistone (backing vocals), Darwin DeVitis (guitars and vocals), Omar D. Brancato (bass and vocals), and Matty Milani (drums), CARBON 9 has sold over 5,000 copies of its earlier releases, while the band's Myspace page has over 14,000 friends signed up.
If you're still unsure, just check out the handful of songs from "The Bull" that are currently posted on CARBON 9's label page for the proof — including such originals as "My Friend" (a song that, according to Stacey, is "directly about that one person that constantly stabs you in the back yet we continue to keep them close within the circle"), "Somebody Like Me" (which is "a very egocentric song that states the fact that we need a significant other but usually demand someone to follow our ways and do as we do"), and the title track ("It is about the strength in belief of the self"), as well as a rockin' version of "Mother" ("This was our first cover song to ever record and we chose it very carefully").
