After weeks of speculation and online buzz (further fueled by a series of cryptic video transmissions and the appearance of mysterious USB drives discovered at random location across the country) the identities of each member of hardcore/metal rockers Peace’d Out have been revealed.
Peace’d Out hail from both California and New York, and cover many miles and years in between. Coming together from various other musical endeavors, Vinnie Caruana (I Am The Avalanche, The Movielife), Steve Choi (RX Bandits), Casey Deitz (The Velvet Teen) and Roger Camero (No Motiv, The Warriors) are fiercely loyal to being a unified collective and inaugurated as such not contingent on the past, or the present even.
Peace’d Out have blended together a sonic bath of the finest elements in hardcore, punk, and metal. One could even prefix a “post-” to said genres. The result is triumphant, risky, and unapologetic.
The band’s incendiary self-titled release, due out on October 30 on LA indie Siren Records (Silver Snakes, No Motiv) was recorded at Bright Mountain Studios in just about a week’s time, true to the ethos of their core and respective talents as musicians, and the precision of their performing together.
Peace’d Out begins as a musical vessel, but extends its reach as something much greater. Steve Choi says himself, “While everything is planned, we had no idea what was happening once we began. A gentle inspiration transformed and became so aggressive in its delivery that what we thought were moments of calm clarity, quickly became frustrated shouting for most of the address. We stand next to our musical architecture, still trying to figure out what we built. What we aim to do for ourselves is the same thing we aim to do for our listeners; To intrigue and awe, to confuse and frustrate, to release and express, to break necks and dizzy the ears. We pound the ground and flail our arms while trying to seem in control. We make our own accidents purposeful. Our musical foundation has Peace’d Out.”
