"Stiletto Red's debut CD is addicting"

“Her Love is a Lie” is a 10 song blast of catchy, classically styled, guitar heavy power rock, complete with bad boy attitude bleeding through the music. Gio Panagiotakis’ dynamic vocals are backed by steady, rolling drums, throbbing basslines and ear-catching guitar solos. While playing it for the first time, the listener won’t want the current song to end but yet can’t wait to hear what’s coming next.

The CD opens with the edgy “Into the Night” leaving no doubt this is a power rock album. On “Out of My Head” the rhythm section gets a workout with the prominent bassline and pounding drums throughout the song. The title track features Panagiotakis’ expressive vocals coupled with in and out guitar riffs. “Further Addiction” is a soaring ballad with a screaming guitar solo.

Stiletto Red "Out Of My Head"

The energy on “Bigger Man” escalates with surging guitars and soaring vocals to the climactic end. “Hey You” is dark and intense. Both “Ending of Days” and “World on Fire” are a challenge to anyone who tries to listen to music while sitting still. “My Life” has so much going on that it takes a few listens to appreciate all the combined action from the hard edged vocals, frantic guitars, driving bass rhythms and the slamming drums. The shifting, twisting sounds of “When You’re Gone” close out the CD.

“Her Love is a Lie” is terrific debut effort for Stiletto Red, most bands would be proud to release a CD like this at any stage in their careers. The band’s high-energy, ultra-catchy power rock music can draw in fans from multiple genres and will keep them addicted to the music. The official international release date for “Her Love is a Lie” is February 17, but music fans can currently stream all tracks from the CD on the band’s Soundcloud page.

Stiletto Red is Gio Panagiotakis (vocals), Jared Grey (rhythm guitar), Angel Graves (lead guitar), Sean St. John (drums) and Ryan Salamone (bass).

"Stiletto Red Announce New Album, US Tour in 2013"

After nearly 10 years of friendship, songs and near-tragedies, Orlando, Florida’s Stiletto Red sets out to release their first album in early 2013 before a long-awaited tour spanning several months. Now a part of the In Demand Talent booking network that features rock acts like Chevelle, Eye Empire and many more, M7 Agency is scheduling Stiletto Red for a Southeast-Midwest US tour beginning immediately after the album’s international release.

Being young on the scene didn’t stop Stiletto Red from turning out huge numbers at their first show ever at Downtown Disney’s House of Blues on December 21. They opened the End Of The World show that night to a crowd totaling almost max capacity.

Now with so much work to be done amidst the carnage of being a functioning band with a huge turnout, their next shows will be in mid-February as they kick off their first tour. The band can’t wait to knock out America.

In the meantime, they’ve been busy getting their music featured on radio stations across the country. They were also lucky enough to be invited to an impromptu interview and acoustic session on Channel 6 News in Orlando early one Sunday morning, making Stiletto Red the first of its kind, as this had never been done at the station before. The band’s interviews and singles can be found at their Facebook page.

Still working on that hot first release.



There is no substitute for straight up rock n’ roll with punchy grooves. Pair this purist approach with melodic hooks and an artistically relevant, yet classic sound, and you get Stiletto Red. The band is comprised of Gio on lead vocals, Jared on rhythm guitar, Angel on leads, Ryan on bass, and Rob on drums.

Gio and Jared began their pursuit for the perfect band back in ’08. All coming from different bands and busy schedules, a fate was tied therein. Out of the chaos arose an inspirationally unified vision that drove them all through thick and thin laced with unforeseen setbacks wrapped in near tragedies. The band is now emerging from the rubble with an full length album including a couple of epic, soon-to-be singles. With songs you can hear and feel loudly, the album handles topics like angst, rage, rights of passage, and finding hope.
