It's Time to Break the 'Static Cycle'

Anchorage, Alaska's Rhythmic Alt-Rock Power Trio, Static Cycle, Plays on Their Home State's Chilly Imagery to Release "Inside This World Of Mine," the Debut Single From Their Upcoming EP

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 20, 2010) -  Before the 2008 election made the people and politics of Alaska headline news, those of us in the "Lower 48" were cozy in our stereotypes of everyone there freezing their buns off sliding down immense glaciers. Quickly melting that chilly imagery is rhythmic power alt-rock trio Static Cycle who has been burning up the indie music scene in Anchorage, Alaska since 2007, rocking everything from local clubs to the Egan Convention Center. Over the past two years, the band has not only become the biggest band in Alaska, but also a nationally recognized act, touring 14 states in the U.S. (including dates in New York, Boston, Denver and L.A.) and sharing stages with major artists like Seether, Puddle of Mudd, Eve6, Emery and 36 Crazyfists. In late August, the band brought its explosive mix of rock, hip-hop, R&B, pop and world music to the Alaska State Fair, a 12 day event whose lineup included Collective Soul, Shinedown, Kenny Rogers, Lonestar and BoyzIIMen.

The sonically innovative sounds of Jared Navarre (vocals, guitar), Josh Witham (lead guitar) and Dennis Smith (drums) have been bringing the heat -- and breaking the "static cycle" of mundane, cookie cutter indie rock. Yet the three riff brilliantly off the cold imagery as they get set to release "Inside This World Of Mine," the compelling, symphonic-rock driven debut single from their upcoming EP, Part 1: Hydrate.

In mid-September, the rockers will be shooting the video for the track in two very wintry locations, starting with the world renowned Ice Museum/Hotel in Fairbanks -- a structure that is built completely out of ice, including the building's walls, floors, ceilings and bar area. The second locale is literally on an ice glacier.

Their notoriety helped them snag superstar producers for both the new collection and their 2008 debut project When We Meet Again. The first was helmed by Mike Brown (Papa Roach, Breaking Benjamin, Garbage) and they worked on Part 1: Hydrate and Part 2: Rehydrate with Josh Weaver, aka "Tone," whose credits include Green Day and Santana.
