Biography

Static in the Stars Bio

“Static in the Stars blast right out of the garage and into your stereo at a ferocity best experienced with your volume knob cranked. The Vancouver-based quintet plays loud stadium-ready rock n’roll with huge guitars and soaring vocals.”
- Ben Conoley – Canadian Musician Magazine

“Big-sounding alt-pop from this Vancouver band. To my ears, they sound like the Trews on super-overdrive”
- Alan Cross

"Hearing Static in the Stars between Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters sounds totally natural on the air and listeners love it. Undeniably catchy, melodic rock that’s a perfect fit for any modern rock station. We’re the lucky ones that they are Fox Vancouver Seeds winners."
- Cory Price, 99.3 The FOX

“The best way I can think to describe a Static In The Stars show is guitar-shredding, drum-smashing, epic rock n’ roll you can dance to with catchy vocals that leave you singing the lyrics days later.”
