Static of the Gods: One to Watch in 2008

When Static of the Gods takes the stage in Portland, Oregon tomorrow night - they bring a little Boston with them. This most-promising band have a special something - a talent level, their tight play, an enigmatic charm - that lends me to believe they will be the next Boston band to make a mark on the national level. When I recently saw Static of the Gods in Cambridge, I was very impressed by how effectively singer Jen Johnson (voice, guitar, & keyboard) worked the crowd. All-the-while, she never missed a beat with the band (Mike Latulippe on drums and Ben Voskeritchian on bass & guitar). That, of course, raises my next point... That's a whole lot of beautiful rock 'n' roll to come out of just three people!

Static of the Gods just finished recording a new 2008 album. ("Peluche" - the first single EP has been released in anticipation...) It was just last year that Static released the thoroughly impressive LP, Cycles Follow Signs, which peaked at #103 on the CMJ charts. Expect even bigger things from the band this year.

This band has a bright future! You can find out for yourself on tour - and if you're reading this in Boston that will be on March 21st for a show at Bill's Bar. A hand numbered limited edition litho exclusive to that particular show will be given with every pre-sale ticket purchase.
