Emerging from the idealistic side of punk rock and inspired by the last 30 years of alternative music, The Static Age have evolved their own sound – one that infuses melody, atmosphere, and a pulsating back beat to bring forth an unmistakable urgency and honesty in their songs. The unique weave of Andrew Paley's beautifully weathered vocals and textured guitars coupled with elegant keyboard melodies sitting atop the backdrop of Adam Meilleur's punchy, chorus-drenched bass and Tim Alek Mulley's tempered drums has resulted in an emotionally resonant and danceable collection of songs that sounds like nothing else before it.
Non-stop touring and shows with dozens of bands including AFI, Interpol, The Explosion, and Hot Hot Heat and a knack for compelling visuals has fueled widespread recognition. The Static Age have seen their anthem "Vertigo" rise quickly to #1 on FUSE TV's "Oven Fresh," and the compelling "Cherry Red" video was in Cum Laude rotation on MTVU for many months. They have also been a Myspace favorite, and a “Fresh Pick” of the week.
Following up on their critically-acclaimed Neon Nights Electric Lives (Tarantulas Records, 2005), the quartet is promoting their new album, Blank Screens (ReIgnition Recordings -The Beautiful Mistake, Drowningman, Ultimate Fakebook). The digital version, available on iTunes, Napster, MTV Urge, Downloadpunk, and elsewhere includes an exclusive remix of one of the tracks ("Trauma") done by Ocelot Mthrfcks, which features members of The Rise (Ferret Music, ReIgnition). Blank Screens is garnering high praise from critics and bands alike. The Static Age is on tour now to promote the new release.
