10/11/2006: Many thanks to all the Strand fans for continuing to support our music in the clubs, on their playlists, at the concerts, and via myspace. Recently I’ve received many questions regarding upcoming shows, and upcoming musical releases. Currently I am spending as much time as possible in the studio, banging my head against the keyboards, and gritting my teeth. This is my normal behavior during song writing. In the meanwhile, we will be laying off any local Arizona concerts and focusing on producing some energetic, passionate, inventive, industrial music.
Six quirky friends band together to bring you fun, dancy, riff driven industrial music. Since their inception in 2000, The Strand has produced three full length CDs, and received massive acclaim from promoters, journalists, and fans across the globe with their catchy, aggressive hits. The Strand gets airplay in numerous clubs worldwide and has appeared in a variety of magazines, websites, and movies. Featured on four nationally distributed compilations, The Strand has launched from being a small home-based production into the ears and eyes of industrial fans across the globe. The Strand has supported several national acts, and performed on the main stage at Convergence 11 2005, as well as the Dark Arts Festival in Salt Lake City 2004.
The Strand does not take the conventional techno approach when bringing the music to a live scenario. Instead, a majority of the music is performed live with a drummer, four keyboardists, male and female vocals. If you have not seen a live performance by The Strand, it is really something to consider checking out. Currently The Strand is booking shows and hard at work on their next CD release, slated for mid 2007.
