Biography

Sometimes it can take a lot more than one window closing before you discover the wide open door that stands before you. Such is the case with the Modern Rock force known as AURORA SKY. After a gallant run for major label recognition from CBS Records, Interscope and others, the previous formation of the band known as FEAR THE CLOWN seemed destined for a non-stop ride to the top. Label showcases and powerful live performances yielded many offers from the majors, but unfortunately, internal complications and differing opinions about the musical direction would cause an untimely dissolve of the band’s relationship with frontman and guitarist Andrew West. Without the talented musician’s vocal and writing ability to lean on, FEAR THE CLOWN crumbled to its demise in 2005.

Flash forward to 2007: Left to pick up the pieces on his own, West began writing what would later become the launching pad for AURORA SKY in six tracks that he took with him to L.A. for studio sessions with the Grammy Nominated Michael Raphael of the band NEVE. With Raphael’s engineering and production genius, West and FEAR THE CLOWN drummer Chris Shy pumped out one of the most stunning releases of their career. Critics agreed, calling the AURORA SKY E.P. one of the “hottest Modern Rock releases since SHINEDOWN”!

Now, nearly four years after the fall of FEAR THE CLOWN, West has assembled the most stunning line-up of his career to launch the AURORA SKY name and International release of their self-titled E.P. On October 27th, the world will finally get a taste of what radio programmers across the U.S. and music critics have been raving about the past year and a half. WOBX-98.1FM program director Cuervo Curtis calls AURORA SKY “One of the most memorable call-outs we’ve seen in years. They’ve got at least three singles on this thing!”

Hear for yourself what is destined to become one of the biggest standout releases of 2009! AURORA SKY’s self-titled album drops at Itunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, Napster & Shockhound on October 27th through Away Team Music. The band is in the midst of assembling a tour schedule to support the release with shows planned throughout their home turf of Oklahoma City, Tulsa and a run through the East Coast as the opener for national and regional acts throughout.
