2 EPs and 3 drummers in, Vancouver rock group Stars Of Boulevard is stronger than ever, with a big year ahead of them.

Walking triumphantly out of the courtroom after winning a legal battle with one of their ex-drummers, the boys look unphased, as if this weren’t their first run-in with the law (we’re sure it wasn’t).

Frontman Joshua Helgason, ex-singer of The Sessions (2006 winners of Emergenza, the world’s largest Battle of the Bands), lights a cigarette as they get into a cab. SOB have now acquired a new drummer in Matty Carolei (Lost Vultures), and after speaking with the 4-piece band at their local hang out spot — Whineo’s on Granville in Vancouver — they seem to mesh musically and emotionally, as if they had been together for years.

SOB just signed on with RockGamer Studios to release several of tracks on the smash hit video game Rock Band, including “Limousine”.

In early November of 2009, they are going into Mushroom Studios to record a single with worldclass production duo Jeff Dawson & Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Metallica).

“We’re excited as hell to work with talented people who know what the end result could possibly be in this business,” says guitarist Ken Abbey, when asked about the Rock Band opportunity, as well as working with Mike Fraser.

SOB is Joshua Helgason (Vocals), Ken Abbey (Guitar), Johnny Kaye (Bass) & Matt Carolei (Drums).

Bio

Stars of Boulevard is composed of members of three formerly "enemy" Vancouver bands. Formed in the summer of 2008. SOB signed on with RockGamer Studios to release several tracks on the smash hit video game Rock Band, including “Limousine”. As of March 3rd 2010, the RockBandNetwork Store is up and running, and Limousine is doing great sales with a lot of positive YouTube fan support.

In early November of 2009, they went into Mushroom Studios to record a single with world-class production duo Jeff Dawson & Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Metallica). The song is called "You Can Take The Money". The mix was done at the legendary Warehouse studios.

A band knows they're making solid progress and generating some buzz when they're invited by the manager of a multi-platinum selling rock band, Disturbed, to represent Canada at Rock Saga Festival in Negril, Jamaica. The all expenses paid gig was for May of 2010, with Stars of Boulevard headlining the main stage on the beach, but the festival was postponed to 2011 citing the island's gang vs. authority war that's claimed the lives of civilians and soldiers. Another positive indicator came following their show at Whistler's Telus Ski and Snowboard Festival when Stars Of Boulevard was offered a three album record deal. The label execs and the band shared similar visions and got along well, but upon submitting a non-negotiable contract to the band, and after review by SOB's lawyers, the band respectfully declined the offer.

Out of over 400 bands and singer/songwriters, SOB's made the Top 3 in 2010's Fox Seeds contest. Some notable Top 3 bands from previous years have been Nickelback, State of Shock and Art of Dying. On August 27th, Stars of Boulevard will play the Commodore Ballroom and will aim their sights on the coveted "Platinum Award".

Stars of Boulevard is Josh Helgason Abel(Vocals), Ken Abbey (Guitar), Johnny Kaye (Bass) & Matty Carolei (Drums).
