"FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE"

UP-AND-COMING FUNK/POP/ROCK BAND

THINK SET TO OPEN FOR KISS

Local band will open for the celebrated rockers on August 29 at The Pearl

LAS VEGAS – July XX, 2008 – THINK, a Las Vegas-based band, has been chosen to open for the iconic rock band KISS. THINK will take the stage on Friday, August 29, 2008 at 8 p.m. at The Pearl Concert Theater. Prior to the show at the Palms, THINK will open for KISS at the Rock N’ The Rally in Sturgis, S.D. on August 4th, 2008.

Since inception, THINK has demonstrated a commitment to create songs which have an impact on their audience, describing their sound as “funk/pop/rock.” The band spent the majority of a year writing their debut album before joining together with Darren Sher and Cris Judd of Lee Grant Productions. The two producers were immediately captivated by the band’s sound and asked them to record an 11 song CD. Soon to be released, the debut album Odyssey was mixed by Jeff Juliano who has worked with musical talents such as John Mayer and the Dave Matthews Band. The song “Apollo” off the CD has been chosen for the soundtrack of the surf movie “The Outside,” due out later this summer along with music from Linkin Park and POD.

THINK consists of Brandon Knaff on guitar and lead vocals, Phillip Seaton on lead guitar, Adam Knaff on bass, Sam Riddle on keyboards and Billy Carmody on drums. The dynamic band has quickly built a fan base by playing at several prominent clubs and festivals across the United States.

“We’re so honored to have the opportunity to play with such a respected and legendary band,” says THINK lead singer Brandon Knaff. “KISS has helped launch many new bands in the past and we hope that this will encourage more people to listen to our music.” For more information on THINK, go to www.myspace.com/thinktheband.

Tickets for KISS with special guests THINK are $153.00 and $303.00, plus any additional service fees and are on-sale now. Please visit any Ticketmaster location, call 702-474-4000 or visit www.ticketmaster.com to purchase tickets.

"Vegas Rocks Magazine August 2008 Issue"

THINK'S STAR CONTINUES TO RISE

We discovered teen "funk-pop-rock" band THINK at the Cheyenne Saloon in March '08, right before Joe Brown featured them in the LV Sun in April under the caption "Young Vegas Rockers Out to Change the World". So
impressed we were with their unique and charismatic style that we chose them for our June cover devoted to "The Incredible Vegas Music Scene", selected from among hundreds.

Since then, their star has continued to rise, with a pivotal performance
at L.A.'s world-renowned Whisky A Go Go rock club, to which they've been asked back to headline shows in October AND December. Indeed, heads spun so fast that THINK was invited to open for 38 SPECIAL and THE CHARLIE DANIELS BAND several weeks later at the Fantasy Springs Events Center
in Palm Springs, then for KISS at the huge, half-million strong "Rockn
The Rally" rock event at Glencoe Amphitheatre in Sturgis, South
Dakota, August 4.

Looking ahead, they're set to open for KISS again at the Pearl here in
Sin City August 29th and they're playing at the Vegas Rocks! 4th Year Anniversary Party on 8/16 at the Canyon Club, headlined by '80s
sensations ENUFF Z'NUFF. Talk about a diverse and dynamic band -- THINK can play anywhere, anytime on any stage!

And that's not all: look for their debut CD, "Odyssey", produced by
Darren Sher and Chris Judd of Lee Grant Productions, mixed by powerhouse
Jeff Juliano (who's collaborated with greats like John Mayer and Dave Matthews), to drop soon, with fresh, original, next-decade songs written by band members Brandon Knaff (frontman & guitarist), brother Adam (bass),
and Phillip Seaton (lead guitarist), melding lyrics and craftsmanship
far beyond their years and a chemistry that you'll have to see to believe.

Not to mention, their single "Apollo" will appear on the soundtrack of surf movie "The Outside", together with songs from LINKIN PARK and POD,
set for release later this summer. So catch their shows and get your
signed merch before this Vegas band hits the big time --

"Thinking Big - Las Vegas Weekly 8-28-08"

Stepping onstage in support of theatrical rock legends Kiss—and staring into the painted faces of their fanatical legions—would rightfully daunt any fresh-faced band. It would probably scare the hell out of Think, had the Las Vegans not already done it, in far more intimidating environs than they’ll likely experience this weekend at the Pearl.

KISS with Think @ The Pearl
KISS “Playing in front of 50,000 people was completely different from playing in front of 50,” vocalist Brandon Knaff says of the August 4 concert that saw Think open for Kiss at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota’s Glencoe Amphitheater.

“We were in our awesome trailer with furniture and drinks and chips and a kitchen with a coffee maker and a fridge, and we woke up and went, ‘Whoa, we’re in South Dakota playing on one of the biggest stages in the country.’ We stood in the crowd, watching [fellow Las Vegans] Searchlight. Then we went backstage, and they started counting down the minutes before we went on—‘Three minutes to go.’ And then instinct kicked in when we hit the stage.”

Together the past two years, Think’s core lineup—Knaff, 19; his younger brother, bassist Adam, 16; and guitarist Phillip Seaton, 19—caught their biggest break to date when Kiss’ management team scoped them out during a June gig at LA’s Whisky a Go Go. Soon after, the band, which is supplemented by keyboardist Sam Riddle and drummer Billy Carmody onstage, found itself signing on to open for Kiss in both South Dakota and Las Vegas.

“It’s an honor,” Knaff says. “They’re such a legendary band, and they’ve helped launch a couple bands in the past.” Adds Seaton: “We’ve had hits on MySpace from people saying they loved us at Sturgis, so we feel we made a good impact there. And hopefully, the couple-thousand people [at the Pearl] will be encouraged to listen to the music of an up-and-coming band out of Las Vegas.”

Think’s June debut album, Odyssey—produced by Las Vegas duo Darren Sher and Cris Judd of Lee Grant Productions—showcases a funky alt-rock sound reminiscent of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. During the band’s recent Amplify!! music conference set, the afro’d Knaff bared his chest and threw himself into his performance physically, not unlike one Anthony Kiedis. Still, the young frontman bristles at suggestions he might be mimicking his heroes.

“My style comes from me, just me,” Knaff says. “I do watch the greats and take a few notes here and there, but every one of us tries to go out there and create something totally new and different. I don’t want to be considered a Jim Morrison or Robert Plant, even though they’re great.”

Mighty big names to toss around. But then, so is Kiss, and Think will share its second bill with Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons on Friday night. “I do step-by-step goals,” Knaff says. “My last goal was to play the Pearl. [Then] I’d like to do something with a label or a distributor and tour Europe or the United States. I think our music is great for every generation, and I think that’s what’s gonna separate us from some other bands.”

Opening for Kiss. August 29, 8 pm, $150-$300. The Pearl, 942-7777.

Bio

THINK took the approach of finding the right producer to record their music as a first step towards developing into a successful band in today's entertainment business.

Brandon, Phillip and Adam have always believed that they had the songs to make a difference. They spent the better part of a year writing, before finding the producer, they believed, would help record and capture their sound. Producers, Darren Sher and Cris Judd, of Lee Grant Productions heard the band in rehearsals and immediately committed to a major project, an 11 song CD, with THINK. Six months later the CD is finished having been mixed by Jeff Juliano who has worked with the Dave Matthews Band and John Mayer. The song” Apollo” on the CD has been chosen to be on the sound track for the movie, “The Outside” with Linkin Park and P.O.D. which will be released in late summer of 2008.

Their writing ability positions THINK for long term success. Having already written enough songs to complete two cds the band finds itself in the unique position of having multiple invitations to perform at prestigious clubs and festivals throughout the United States. Their dynamic theatrics and confidence propels their live performance. THINK is pleased to know that they are on the path to success, and it is apparent when they perform. " We have a way of strongly communicating with our fans", says lead singer, Brandon Knaff.

In closing, the success of THINK, in such a short time signifies something very exciting is in their future. The band believes their sound,” funk pop rock”, is setting a new course for this musical generation.
