"The Skinny: Clock Strikes XII (CSXII)"

The Skinny: Clock Strikes XII (CSXII) is a dynamic high-energy alternative metal band from the Northern VA/Washington DC area. The band's style and level of musicianship rivals the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet for my Valentine, and Alexisonfire. Their live show features anthem-style vocals, melodic guitar riffs, hard driving rhythms, and thunderous double-bass percussion. The band has just completed their EP Gasping for Air produced by Don Debiase (Studio D, Standby Records) and video "Enter-In," which was produced by Sean Babas (Monster, BET, E!, MTV #1 Video - KDrew - "One"). - Pure Grain Audio
