Music is a source of life for the members of this Central New Jersey group called Sekond Skyn. It was perfect timing for former members of local act Backhand when they joined forces with charismatic front man Jon Follet, after the dissolve of his band Bind. They began performing as a 5-piece experimental hard rock band in late 2005.
They have collectively performed with such national acts as Korn, Deftones, Stone Sour, Godsmack, Taproot, Flyleaf, Mudvayne, Slipknot, Atreyu, Bloodsimple, evanescence, Hell Yeah, Trivium, Machine Head, Nothing Face, Suicidal Tendencies, Sevendust, Chevelle, Breaking Benjamin, Saliva, Lacuna Coil, Skid Row, Anthrax, Coal Chamber, Five Finger Death Punch, Sponge, Testament, The Vans Warped Tour and others.
Sekond Skyn quickly developed a thriving, loyal fan base with their aggressive and dynamic live performances. Their hard work and dedication led them to earn the title of the WRATfest Opening Act Band Search Winner in 2006 And 2007, outshining hundreds of bands 2 years in a row for the prize of opening the Family Values Tour with Korn. The contest's, which were hosted by major market radio station 95.9 WRAT, proved to be great accomplishments. It eventually led them to win the hearts and ears of the station's disc jockeys and they were rewarded with a prime-time interview, radio airplay and plenty of exposure.
When it came time to release their first full-length album Let the Fire Burn mastered by Danny Schuler of Biohazard and mixed by Ray Pond in December 2006, 95.9 WRAT quickly agreed to host the release party. It was a major event which drew more than 400 fans to the famed Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
Sekond Skyn has recently signed a contract with MTV/ Via-com so that MTV and MTV 2 can use the 2006 Release Let The Fire Burn on upcoming episodes of "Cribs, Juvies ,My Sweet Sixteen and others MTV and MTV 2 shows" .
In 2008, they released a self titled EP to hold fans over while they decided on songs for the next full length album. "The Blue Album" was well recieved by long time fans and also gained a new group of Sekond Skyn fanatics. Partially based on the EP's success, Sekond Skyn was named the top Hard Rock Act of 2008 by the Asbury Music Association.
The powerful lyrics are executed with an expressive vocal performance. You can find an overwhelming diversity in the music with melody, aggression, anger and even some riffs with progressive Blues influences. It's an extraordinarily refreshing sound that is truly unclassified.
March 2009 will see the release of Addicted to Chaos, the bands third release. The album was co-produced, mixed, and mastered by Grammy Award winner Ed Reed (Type O Negative, Life of Agony, Naughty By Nature). Sekond Skyn will embark on a tour of the east coast in late February beginning in Allentown, Pa. and heading down to West Palm Beach, Fl. Addicted to Chaos entered FMQB at #6 most added with 28 adds and CMJ #6 most added with 53 adds the week of 3/31/09. The band will also have a song on the upcoming European compilation BORN TO ROCK 2009 (ZYX Records) featuring AC/DC, Kid Rock and Metallica due out in mid 2009.
