"Pillowface rocks Poughkeepsie"

Pillowface, a perfect example of how the local music scene has developed, made an exciting appearance at The Chance Theater on Friday night. With a sudden jolt of energy from the fans, the area in front of the stage became more full as the curtain raised and Pillowface entered the stage. Fans partied and had a great time while enjoying the melodic rock tunes of this local giant, which was established in the year 2000.
The band proudly consists of Bobby Weiss (vocals), Ronni Gambino (drums and backing vocals), Steve Ascarino (guitar and backing vocals) and Tom Rimington (bass guitar).

"Trust is a must"

Five stars. It was a pleasure to my ears listening to this band's cd. Melody, Harmony and actually having guitar solos. Great hooks and great songs. The singer is right on, the guitarist one of the best in years and super drumming (who are these guys?), add to the pleasure. They are one of the best unsigned bands I have heard in years. Not one bad song on this cd. Thanks for saving my ears and the music world pillowface.

"Serge's Music Corner: New Releases"

Just picked up the new release by Pillowface, an alt/hard rock band that I thought was worth everyones' attention. Pillowface just has a perfect sound for alt rock, and has been getting heaps of rotation in the cd player.

Tracks To Check Out:
Stand Up
Wonderful World

I could probably list all the tracks for this album as it is pure class.

Trust - 2006



Pillowface has been making waves throughout New York’s Hudson Valley and Capitol Region since the summer of 2000. Formed from the ashes of local band Two Ton Shoes by drummer Ronni Gambino and guitarist Steve Ascarino, the group is completed by former Slipfist bassist Tom Rimington and vocalist Bobby Weiss, formerly of the band Pajamazon. This powerful quartet offers intense, melodic hard rock delivered with high-energy performances, passionate vocals, rib-cracking guitar and a lock-tight rhythm section.

In early 2003 pillowface independently released a 15-song cd entitled “Disorders of Hearing” and through constant live appearances to support the album, gathered legions of fans that faithfully attend every show. Then with the addition of new singer Bobby Weiss, son of former Songwriter’s Guild of America President and Songwriter’s Hall of Fame inductee George David Weiss whose pop standards include “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”, “What a Wonderful World” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love”, the band emerged from a short hiatus at the beginning of 2004 with fresh material and began performing it to extremely enthusiastic response from pillowface fans old and new. They have performed with national acts Powerman 5000, Breaking Benjamin, Saliva, Eve 6, 3 Doors Down, Shinedown, Sponge, Socialburn, White Light Motorcade, Y&T and Joey Belladonna among others, as well as headlining their own shows at a variety of venues.

In January 2006, the band completed work on a new full length album entitled “Trust” that was recorded at Applehead Studios in Woodstock, NY with producer Bill Eisele and engineers Chris Bittner and Michael Birnbaum (Chris and Michael produced major label artist Coheed & Cambria among others). The cd boasts 11 songs and as one reviewer states, will “tear your head off”. It is available online at pillowface.com, cdbaby.com, for download at itunes.com, and at all live performances. It is currently being shopped by the band’s management for major label distribution. In addition to a new record, pillowface are going to be featured in a documentary that’s currently in production called “Back to the Garden: Woodstock, a band and a Journey”. It is being produced by Houseblend Productions and info on the film can be found at houseblendproductions.com.

Pillowface’s growing popularity is evidenced by the ever-increasing attendance of their live performances and hits to their web pages, and the in-person and online sales of their music and merchandise prove that the band is well on their way to surpassing their status as upstate New York’s best band and becoming the powerful and successful national act they are destined to be. Check them out online at pillowface.com and myspace.com/pillowfacerocks. Samples from the album can also be heard at myspace and itunes.
