The Sam Chasewith guests:
The Neckbeard Boys
The release of his first album in 2009, "Hella Solo," was an amalgamation of many of the songs that he wrote and recorded in his room from the ages of 19 to 25. Most songs were recorded late in the night. Most times there was alcohol involved. What came of those 19 lonely, depressing songs became the jumpstart to The Sam Chase and the many live shows that followed. In 2010, he came out with his second album, "Testicular Fortitude," which was more of the same. They were songs that would pull your heart strings and songs that would make you feel like you were just as drunk as the man singing these songs. Now, in 2012, comes the release of his long awaited first studio album, "The Sam Chase Will Lead Us To Victory." Its aim is to blow your mind. Its goal is world peace, where everyone wins, where victory is a basic human right. If all goes according to plan, The Sam Chase will lead you there.
When your band is called Cosmic Suckerpunch, you had better be prepared to back that name up with some pounding, stellar rock and roll. Good thing songwriter Ari Welkom and company deliver on spacey licks and heady songs, rooted in blues and funk, and indebted to imaginative fantasy rock music in the spirit of Led Zeppelin. With a driving rhythm, Cosmic Suckerpunch has invaded the L.A. scene, and with their self-released debut, Good Morning, the band plans on waking up the rest of us with a primal scream.
