"222 Premiere Video for One Night Stand"

Blog Post
Oct. 5, 2015

PureVolume.com - Sometimes a girl can only take so much and drastic actions prove fatal. That is the underlining theme behind the new single/video "One Night Stand," by L.A. alternative rock duo 222. The single / video is off the band's debut album Libretto and chronicles the tale of a one night stand leading to a guy stalking the girl until One Night when she decides to take a Stand for herself by killing him and burying him under her house. The video shows her secret might be out when a friend comes over to visit and the girl thinks she hears what she thought she got rid of. See video here: (http://bit.ly/1KLQZmp)

"One Night Stand" has enjoyed success on Rodney Bingenheimer's legendary radio show "Rodney on the Roq" and is currently being played on college and alternative stations radio across the country. The band is performing select dates this fall to support the release. Dates to be announced. (www.222band.com)

222 is Jade Howard and Dennis Hamlin. The duo wrote, played all the instruments, and recorded the songs on Libretto themselves in their home studio with the only other credit on the album going to Frank Rosato who mixed the record. Howard and Hamlin are both prolific songwriters drawing their musical influences from books, movies and life experiences."One Night Stand" is loosely based on the Edgar Allen Poe story the Tell Tale Heart. The collection of songs on Libretto play much like an opera in that every song is a story. Yet don't let the opera reference fool you, the album is a collection of pop punk / 80s/90s influenced rock mixed with current techno influences that together deliver 222's own power packed take on dance rock. Listen to Libretto here: (http://www.222band.com/music/)

"One Night Stand" and Libretto are available on iTunes, and Amazon.

"Ears Wide Open: 222"

First, this: Los Angeles duo 222 has no relation to The 222s, the first-wave Quebecois glam-punk band from the late ’70s. 222 are Jade Howard and Dennis Hamlin, whose affection for the shadowy electro- and techno-rock of the 1980s and ’90s is on display on their full-legnth debut “Libretto,” released earlier this year. The duo can play relatively nice (“Baby Doll Picnic”), not-so-nice (“If I Tore Your Ti#$ Off You’d Make a Great Pink Lemonade” [yes, that’s a real title]) and downright dark — as in the video for “One Night Stand.” Here, a quick bout of lust leads to a guy turning into an overly persistent suitor, and our heroine rids herself of the stalker in the most savage way possible. - BuzzBands.la


"222 Play at Hotel Cafe - Los Angeles"

222 play at Hotel Cafe tonight

If you're looking for tunes worthy of soundtracking only the coolest Halloween party (obviously, the one at *your* house), 222 has got you covered. This electro-dance rock duo released their self-produced debut album, Libretto, earlier this year. They also recently put out an eerie music video for their single One Night Stand, which stars singer/guitarist Jade Howard as a stylish femme fatale, getting back at a date (played by drummer Dennis Hamlin) who has become a bit too attached.

If you're eager to start the holiday early, 222 are playing at the Hotel Cafe tonight at 9 pm. On Halloween, they're releasing an early version of a new music video to their mailing list subscribers. It's for their song "Headcake", and it looks like the band is aiming to up the creepy-factor this time around. - Brittany Scheffler - The Deli Magazine - LA

Bio

222 is Jade Howard and Dennis Hamlin. Formed in 2014 in Los Angeles, the longtime friends only recently discovered their musical chemistry. With no anticipation of a full length album they started recording in June of 2014 by tracking demos which in turn ended up being used for most of the tracks on their debut album LibrettoThe duo wrote and recorded the songs on Libretto themselves in their home studio with the only other credit on the album going to Frank Rosato who mixed the record. Howard and Hamlin are both prolific songwriters drawing their musical influences from books, movies and life experiences. Their first single/ video “One Night Stand,” is loosely based on the Edgar Allen Poe story the Tell Tale Heart. The collection of songs on Libretto play much like an opera in that every song is a story. Yet don’t let the opera reference fool you, the album is a collection of pop punk / 80s/90s influenced rock mixed with current techno influences that together deliver 222’s own power packed take on dance rock.
