"Spinning an up-and-coming act"

A&R Worldwide-January 15, 2005 KMRQ Modesto/Stockton is spinning an up-and-coming act (also an A&R Worldwide-affiliated artist) called Evil Engine #9. PD/MD Jack Paper says, “This band has such huge potential. I just bumped up their rotation. It's a band that I think could be worked at both Alternative and Active Rock. The song we're playing, “Thorn (Inside Of You)”, is already getting some reaction. In a world of a billion songs, a lot of big names and in a format that is always putting out new music, I think that's awesome. I'd encourage anyone to give these guys a shot. A big deal should be coming their way soon.” KUPD Phoenix, WTFX Louisville and WQRC Ft. Myers are supporting this Indiana-based act as well. WQRC PD Lance Hale, who discovered the band wile programming WLRS Louisville (a station that’s still supporting Evil Engine #9 with airplay) says, “I threw ‘Thorn (Inside Of You)’ into rotationas soon as I got it from the band & the reaction has been astounding. These guys are on to something. It's heavy, but there's no whining. Lyrically, it's extremely positive--and I like that. Instead of it being a song that bitches about what's wrong, it tells you how to fix it.” - - KingsofAR.com - January 2, 2005

Feeling a bit camera shy


Evil Engine #9 was formed in 1999 in a small town in Southern, IN called Corydon (20 miles from Louisville, KY). Band built a large fan base in a small period of time, acquired serious management by 2003 and recorded a two song demo with Producer/Mixer Pete Thornton (Shinedown, Cold) in Orlando, FL. After recording this demo including songs “Thorn” and “Anxiety”, EE9’s song “Thorn” was put into full rotation at Radio Stations WRQC Ft. Myers, FL, WLRS and WTFX Louisville, KY, KUPD Phoenix, AZ and KMRQ Modesto, CA . In many of these markets “Thorn” was the #1 most requested song for weeks. Because of every day spins by these stations as well as “Specialty” spins on many more rock stations around the country EE9’s song Thorn was in the top 55 on Active Rock charts by spring of 2005. Currently EE9 is gearing up to shoot a music video for song “Thorn” with Director Dale Resteghini (Hatebreed, Mudvayne, Fall Out Boy) in NYC late January.

Evil Engine #9 has shared the stage with acts such as Trapped, Flaw, 10 Years, 311, Sum 41, Papa Roach, Smile Empty Soul (EE9 headlined in Louisville), Anthrax, Lit, Socialburn, Yellowcard, 30 Seconds To Mars, just to name a few. EE9 recently played at “LRS fest” in Louisville, KY in front of 10,000 people and The Orlando Music Festival.
