Feeling a bit camera shy


Heavy Melodic Rock. That is the only way to describe the waves of sound that pulse from 420. Emerging from the midwest city of Rockford, IL, this rock is ready to roll. With the powerful songwriting and singing of Mike Kerry, this group blends the heaviest of heavy with the tripped-out sonic sounds of experimental rock. Guitarists Tom Parrott and Ted Jacoby wrap intertwining textures together, while the rythm section of John Pond on bass and Bunj on drums keep a solid backgroove. Chris Kerry rounds out the sound with percussion and backing vocals. With an EP and a full-length CD to their credit, 420 has charted nationally on over 300 college radio stations over the past year. Poised to break nationally, 420 has begun work on their third CD. The sound has more aggressive muscle than ever before and will build momentum to drive them to the next level. 420 cannot be stopped. Get in or get out of the way!

420 is set to release a 4-song EP due Summer 2004. This interactive release will include a video for the single "Divinity". We plan on shopping hard with this release and getting the attention the music deserves. Also included on the disc will be a cover of the Phil Collins song "Don't Care Anymore". The band has 20+ songs written and demo'd and will enter the studio to record a new full-length CD for release at early 2005. live shows are a must see, hear, feel to believe.

In 1998, 420 released the four-song CD "In For Twenty". The disc was praised by critics and fans alike and earned 420 a 1999 RAMI Critics Choice for best Composition of the Year and a 2000 RAMI for best Hard Rock Band. This helped solidify a strong fan base in their home town of Rockford, Illinois.

In 1999, 420 entered The Noise Chamber recording studio (Cheap Trick, The Pimps, Big Hello) to complete their long-awaited follow-up, "Desensitized". This 10-song CD has a more mature sound and first-rate production. With a new and improved line-up, live shows are more powerful than ever.
