I SEE STARS exploded into the mainstream in 2011 after making their national television debut on the ABC late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” This coupled with being featured on the covers of Alternative Press and Substream Magazine and touring all across North America with Black Veil Brides on the “AP Tour” helped the band gain legions of devoted fans.
However, in 2012 the group have had their most successful year yet with the release of digital_renegade, their third full-length album. This new effort was recorded with acclaimed producer Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, Emmure) and the end result is a propulsive blend of aggressive music alongside build ups that spawn from the core of techno/dub-step/electro. The disc was highly regarded by fans and media alike as their best offering yet and yielded AMP and Outburn Magazine cover features.
SEE STARS` willingness to push genre boundaries-and challenge themselves- is
most evident by the deft electronic elements throughout ditigal_renegade. Unlike
other band who combine disparate styles, I SEE STARS do so in unexpected ways;
the mash-up of programmed effects and crushing rock elements sound seamless and
exciting. The album`s first week sales were also reflective of just how
creatively charged and ferociously ambitious the band is as it scanned an
impressive 8,632 units debuting at #39 on the Billboard Top 200 charts. This
marked the highest first week sales of I SEE STARS` already impressive
I SEE STARS spent most of this past year on tour
alongside such renowned artists as Asking Alexandria, Trivium, Motionless In
White and Suicide Silence, among others. They will put a cap on the year touring
with Falling In Reverse across North America Oct/Nov. The band will continue
well into 2013 supporting digital_renegade campaign.
I SEE STARS first captured the hearts of America`s youth in 2010 on Warped Tour and a highly acclaimed run with A Day To Remember, supporting their groundbreaking 3D release. That album strayed away from all the musical cliches blending all musical genres to set the bar for a new unique sound, which quickly resonated with kids across the world.
