Sunday Night w/ SHINY TOY GUNS
& Residents: THEE MIKE B, & DJ METRIC
::SHINY TOY GUNS::
Shiny Toy Guns is an American rock band that formed in 2002 in Los Angeles with music that flaunts a sleek, '80s-influenced combination of synth-pop and electro-clash.
Founded by bassist/keyboardist Jeremy Dawson and guitarist/vocalist Gregori Chad Petree, the band's lineup was fully realized with the addition of vocalist Carah Faye Charnow and drummer Mikey Martin.
After building a local following in California, Shiny Toy Guns made its first studio album, We Are Pilots, that featured two singles that peaked inside the top 30 in the Alternative Songs Chart.
The album fared well commercially and critically, eventually earning a Grammy Award nomination for "Best Electronic/Dance Album" in early 2008.
In August 2008, it was revealed that Carah Faye Charnow was no longer part of the band and had been replaced by Sisely Treasure,whose vocals are featured on the band's second album.
Their second album “Season of Poison” was released in 2008 and expanded the band’s artistic palette and fan base, with two Top 20 rock radio singles in “Ricochet!” and “Ghost Town,” as well as a staggering number of placements in film, television, commercials and video games.
Their version of the ’80s classic “Major Tom (Coming Home),” was ranked by Adweek.com as the No. 1 song in a commercial (for the Lincoln MKZ) for 2009 and went on to sell 600,000 units digitally.
Shiny Toy Guns’ musical fingerprints can be found on songs in films (“The Smurfs,” “Wall Street 2″), on networks (HBO, NBC), in television shows (“Dancing With the Stars,” “The L Word,” “Gossip Girl,” “So You Think You Can Dance,” “America’s Got Talent,” “Smallville,” “Ugly Betty”), in video games (Rock Band 3, Grand Theft Auto 3 & 4, Guitar Hero 5, Fifa Soccer 2007, Tony Hawk Pro Skater) and in products (Motorola, Nokia, Apple, Honda, Ford, Burton, Vestal, Volcom).
“III,” their newest album reunited the original four members together in 2012 whose pioneering synth-pop and DIY ethic made Shiny Toy Guns worldwide sensations.
On “III,” their first album in almost four years, the band refines its signature electronic sound with a collection of exuberant, intensely personal songs about life, love, loss and redemption.
