BREAKING THE BARRIER of aggressive rock music synthetic sixteen has reemerged with a bigger sound and bigger aspirations. synthetic sixteen has a 5-year history of impressing live audiences with incredible live shows and memorable songs “lushly orchestrated ballads, buoyantly playful alternative songs and introspective ruminations”.

The New York band was formed in the spring of 2000, with the vision of creating a new dimension to the New York City rock scene. synthetic sixteen brings years of experience to their songwriting and performing with members coming from previous projects such as Lament, Shutdown, and Tonystark.

The band received immediate attention, as their debut album, “Your Water” reached the masses and the critics with astounding praise “For lack of a better word, this release is simply beautiful.” –Poppunk Within one year of the release, synthetic sixteen had been charted with heavy rotation in every major college market in the United States, as well as commercial radio on each coast. The momentum led to the band headlining music conferences throughout the East Coast, and being featured as the main act for the New York City launch of the American Express Blue Music Card. With the release of their 4-song self-titled EP in February of 2002, synthetic sixteen continued to gain more notoriety as one of New York’s premier modern rock acts by playing the Meadowlands Sports Arena twice in 2002, in conjunction with Clear Channel, Q104.3FM, and Jagermeister.

In the summer of 2002 three songs by synthetic sixteen were featured and performed by the band in the Off-Broadway production, “Rockstars NYC”. In September of the same year synthetic sixteen was the featured artists of the M.E.A.N.Y Music Festival kick off party, and an invited performer at the 1st Annual Dewey Beach Music Festival.

synthetic sixteen spent 2003 and 2004 headlining New York City clubs such as CBGB’s, The Knitting Factory, The Continental, ACME Underground and rare acoustic performances at CBGB’s Gallery. By the end of 2003 synthetic sixteen recorded their anticipated follow up album, “Too Far Along”.

Now, in 2005, two of synthetic sixteen’s songs have been featured in the Sundance Film Festival selected film “lbs.” The movie has recently been picked up by Cavu Productions and will be released nationally, accompanied by the release of a full-length soundtrack. The movie and soundtrack have a balanced mix of where Synthetic Sixteen began over five years ago, with one song from “Your Water” and demonstrates how far they have come with a new track from “Too Far Along”. With the release of the movie and soundtrack in the fall, synthetic sixteen is bound to get the same attention from the masses, as they have consistently received from festivals, labels, and clubs over the years.
