"A Newmatic Army Drops in on SXSW"

Nashville band Newmatic, like many of the bands descending upon Austin for SXSW 2010, were eager to promote their music. Adopting a unique alternative to face-to-face interaction with festival-goers, Newmatic took to the skies, sending hundreds of little plastic paratroopers from rooftop bars into the crowd below. Each mini-man came equipped with a business card containing the band's photo one one side and an offer for a free song download on the other, all sent from above.

The band passed through Austin during a 13-day mini-tour, their first together since forming in late 2008, making new fans and learning valuable touring lessons along the way. "We didn't know what to expect. Some nights there was nobody there and some nights there were 150 people," said Brian Fuente, the band's lead singer. "It was more of a learning experience than an official work-your-a---off tour."

"Newmatic | Clarion Ledger"

With radio ready hooks and some experimentation with synthesizers, the band's sound recalls groups like the Strokes and The Killers.

With an EP slated for release in the near future, Newmatic should definitely be on music lovers' radar.

From the heart of Music City-- treading alongside country music's biggest stars-- is Newmatic; a unique powerhouse of skilled musicians packing a blend of indie, pop, electronica and classic rock and roll that stays with you long after the smell of cigarette smoke fades from your t-shirt.

Though bits of influence from Duran Duran, Muse and Mute Math can be heard in their music, Newmatic's sound is unparalleled. Newmatic offers high-energy and engaging live performances, catchy lyrics, and a great passion for the stage.

"We really bank on our live performance; we engage the crowd. Blending three guys from totally different backgrounds-- from totally different walks of music-- into a project like this is what makes it so unique. We're not trying to sound like anybody; we're creating the sound that just happens to come out," says frontman Brian Fuente.

Since the release of their EP, "Yours Truly," in 2009 and extensive touring throughout the U.S. in 2010, Newmatic has gained the dedication of many new fans with their infectious sound. The band performed multiple showcases at Red Gorilla Music Festival 2010 in Austin, TX.

Currently unsigned, Newmatic is determined to establish themselves in America's new rock music scene.
