Bio

8HEAD is a story of passion and determination. The band was founded by Dave Moore and Ethan Piper -- two dedicated musicians pursuing music without a band, a record deal or a snowball's chance in hell of ever being heard.

Based in New York City, Piper and Moore committed themselves to compile an album's worth of material, rehearse it, record it, produce it and promote it locally and on the Web. At the time, both Piper and Moore were solely a drum and guitar combo, with plans to play out and record by themselves.

After spending months in pre-production rehearsals, Piper and Moore hit the studio to capture a stripped-down, acoustic version of their best material. Though electric rockers at heart, both pursued acoustic arrangements because they planned to play out as a duo (much like established acts such as the White Stripes and Local H), and a trio when they gained more momemtum. But most importantly, Piper and Moore believed: “if the songs rocked acoustically, how cool would they sound with an expanded band -- namely adding electric guitars and bass?”

Felix Chen, who played on the band's demo, eventually popped in again -- this time to track bass for the project. Armed with a variety of sounds and songs, 8HEAD and producer Craig Randall, buckled down and took on editing, mixing and mastering the new acoustic tracks--while carefully blending in some of 8HEAD's heavier and dirtier works. The final product is a solid blend of rocking songs executed with sophisticated musicianship.

In 2002, 8HEAD spawned Noize Merchant Records, after a very successful test of their song “Ground Zero” on the soon to be re-opened mp3.com. During the course of one week, 8HEAD generated over 4,000 hits for the song and the band, with fan mail coming from as far as Japan and Brazil.

The debut 8HEAD CD is out now, distributed by Noize Merchant Records, and can be purchased through Amazon, iTunes, cdbaby and cdstreet.

Prior to the 8HEAD CD release, the band augmented its lineup to a four piece act, with Piper (guitar and lead vocals), Moore (drums and vocals) and Chen, (bass), joined by Alex Gomez (guitar and backing vocals), an alumni of the established Los Angeles rock band (and Warped Tour veterans), Your Mom...
