Stellar Corpses debut album Dead Stars Drive-In (Santa Carla Records) is available in stores and online now! Produced by the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning Joe McGrath (AFI, Morrissey, Green Day, Blink-182, Alkaline Trio), the band blends a musical amalgamation of punk, rockabilly, hard rock and melodic rock, thrown in for good measure, on an album that defies musical expectations. Stellar Corpses have been supporting punk rock legends TSOL, Tiger Army, Nekromantix, Voodoo Glow Skulls, and classic horror punk rockers The Misfits, on tour.
“Vampire Kiss,” the groups’ new video for their first single off the album was recently filmed in Hollywood at a raucous house party, by director Jared Sagal (Rockerrazzi Films), check out the band performing the track singer Dusty Sheehan calls “a tribute to the greatest vampire movie of all time, The Lost Boys, filmed in our hometown of Santa Cruz.” View everything online at http://www.youtube.com/StellarCorpses.
Stellar Corpses, which literally means “dead stars” in astronomy (Dusty’s idea from studying astronomy in college), have become a fixture in the Santa Cruz hard rock music scene over the years, playing clubs, building their fan base one-by-one with their dynamic and interactive live shows.
Stellar Corpses is Dusty Sheehan on vocals and lead guitar, Dan Lamothe on backing vocals and upright bass, Emilio Menze on backing vocals and guitar, with Kyle Moore on drums.
