Scott Stapp is known as a Grammy winning songwriter and front man for Creed (over 50 million albums sold worldwide), and for his work as a solo artist who released the platinum-certified The Great Divide (2005) and Proof of Life (2013) which featured his first solo Billboard #1, “Slow Suicide.” His next solo venture reflects a new outlook after the biggest fight of his life – five years and counting. With new single “Purpose for Pain,” one of rock’s biggest names roars back to the scene with a driving, introspective new single. It is the first song from Scott Stapp’s upcoming album, THE SPACE BETWEEN THE SHADOWS, set for July 2019 release on Napalm Records. The album documents a five-year journey to find meaning – and redemption – in a world where shadows lurk and the space between is a gauntlet towards the light.
Scott’s evolution, both personally and professionally, now reflects a powerful vocal style from an artist with a strong sense of purpose in sharing the silver lining of his survival. As such, he is an inspiration to others who struggle with the often over-lapping illnesses of addiction and depression. Scott Stapp’s With Arms Wide Open Foundation helps military vets and their families with issues of drug addiction, PTSD-triggered mental health issues and suicide prevention. In 2017, the Florida Association of Broadcasters awarded Scott Stapp with the Florida Service Award and in 2018 he was inducted into the Florida Music Hall of Fame.
Weapons of Anew
Key to the band’s recent “live” success: the professionalism of the band’s musicians led by former Axiom and HavocHate guitarist Freddy Ordine—and former Spread Eagle vocalist Ray West, a born frontman whose confidence and command of the stage has attracted a growing fan base now eagerly awaiting the arrival of the aforementioned debut.
Musicianship coupled with powerful vocals are obviously important, but even the most talented artists stumble without creative, catchy songs. But, as “The Last Hero” tour audiences will attest, each of the band’s songs resonate. From their first single and music video “Killshot” to their debut’s closing track—the potential radio hit--“Undone,” Weapons of Anew never relent. They are not afraid to sonically paint outside the lines and refuse to be “boxed in” or categorized. Their brash, bold sound is colorful, layered and textured; a testament to each member’s vast musical background while maintaining a strong nod to the new.
MESSER means "knife" in German, and the Dallas, Texas band cut a memorable swath through the Rock world in 2018, starting with their debut single "Make This Life” and followed by a second, “Save Myself”. Both songs reached the top 20 Billboard ‘Main Stream Rock’ charts.
The band's cutting edge modern rock sound was born through serendipitous connections in Deep Ellum’s thriving music scene, a Dallas area that has given rise to iconic bands like Pantera, Drowning Pool, Tripping Daisy, King’s X and Hellyeah.
