Listening to Dameon and Gabe Aranda’s music is like hearing an explosive hybrid of the atom bomb and all of Woodstock combined. Marching between swampy gospel, Zeppelin-esque shrieks, and velvety soul, the Aranda brothers create a sound that demands attention.

Aranda is currently on a three-month long, nationwide tour with Tantric. The tour arrives on the heels of the band’s acclaimed self-titled debut, which caught the ear of Kelly Clarkson. Clarkson hand-picked two Aranda songs, “Whyyawannabringmedown” and “All I Ever Wanted”, to cover on her new album and selected the latter track to be the title of her own album. Additionally, World Wrestling Entertainment recently selected “Whyyawannabringmedown” as the theme song for their June pay-per-view event, “The Bash.” Please see reverse for tour schedule.

Aranda’s self-titled debut album is out now and features 11 songs, including “Still in the Dark” and “Whyyawannabringmedown,” which recently broke into the Top 30 on the Active Rock Radio charts. Astonish Entertainment just released a deluxe edition of their debut, which includes live tracks and a radio mix of single “Whyyawannabringmedown.”

Aranda is fronted by brothers Gabe and Dameon Aranda and the band also includes Chad Roper and Mike Walker. Gabe and Dameon have been playing together since they were young children. Dameon has written songs for Grammy-nominated producers Sam Watters, Louis Biancaniello, and Mark Ronson.
