New Zealand Rock Band 'Like A Storm' Making Their Mark on U.S. Billboard Chart

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 4, 2009) - LSI -- New Zealand natives Like A Storm, fresh off a stateside tour with Grammy winners Creed, are turning heads with their debut album "The End Of The Beginning" by opening at number 61 on Billboard's New Artists Chart.

Now based out of Vancouver, B.C., the quartet took little time to rest as they enter the Midwest leg of their current tour and continue to fill up venues around America's heartland with fellow Vancouver-based rockers Veer Union. Through the hard-hitting grooves of their first radio single, "Chemical Infatuation," Like A Storm's U.S. presence is growing larger by the day, as their adrenaline-packed song "Enemy" can already be heard accompanying ESPN's College GameDay football montage, as well as providing the theme song for TNA Wrestling's Pay-Per-View show "Genesis" with the featured track "Lie To Me," airing on January 17th.

Future collaborations are currently in the works including an "artist one-on-one" with actor Eric Bossick, star of the upcoming movie "Tetsuo: The Bullet Man," directed by cult filmmaker Shinya Tsukamoto. Additionally, fans nationwide are encouraged to enter the band's current Paul Reed Smith Guitar Giveaway contest for a chance to win an autographed guitar from the legendary craftsman.

Like A Storm stir up a torrent of infectious hard rock through electronic textures and string flourishes that cascade into a wall of distortion as vocal melodies hypnotize. Brothers Chris (Vocals/Guitar/Programming/ Didgeridoo), Matt (Vocals/Guitar/Programming) and Kent Brooks (Bass/Vocals/ Programming) conjure a dynamic rock sound that's simultaneously ethereal and edgy.
