About Templeton Pek-

The band released “Signs” to critical acclaim in 2013 via Century Media Records. Produced by Shep Goodman (Four Year Strong, American Authors, Bayside) the album was recorded in New York City and contains songs which are now cemented in blistering live shows such as: “Barriers”, “Slow Burn”, “What Are Your Waiting For”, the radio friendly “Wake Me Up” and “Signs”




Having toured most of UK and Europe over their career since the release of their debut “No Association” in 2008, the band are well seasoned whether playing large festivals, Arenas, Academies or club shows. Sharing stages with the likes of: Sum 41, Rise Against, Taking Back Sunday, Bullet For My Valentine, Pendulum, Bad Religion, Alkaline Trio, All Time Low, Pennywise, Four Year Strong, Mindless Self Indulgence, Millencolin, Zebrahead, No use For A name and more.

Built with a DIY ethic engrained into them, the band even self recorded and self produced their sophomore album “Scratches & Scars” in 2011 to critical acclaim.

Whilst “Signs” was their most successful album to date, behind the scenes there was turmoil occurring without the bands knowledge resulting in an unamicable split with their management company as it collapsed mid campaign.

The band began writing again in early 2014, and now in contact with Ken Seaton of LA based label Hardline Entertainment who had expressed interest in the band. Accepting his offer of recording a new album in his studio The Porch in California, the band flew to the US and spent over a month living and recording in Hermosa beach, Los Angeles, hometown of Black Flag, Descendents, All and Pennywise. Following a productive session in LA, Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Sum 41, Lit, Pennywise, Ignite) then came onboard and mixed the album in Maple Studios, CA.

The band states: “Being in a town so rich in punk rock and specifically melodic punk rock inspired us to record “New Horizons” and make it sound the way it does. It’s definitely a new era for us as band on so many levels.”

The album is about using and building on the past, and that’s exactly the drive that the band has. Armed with a new label, new management, a new member and a new batch of songs that represent and sound like a band that has a new lease in life, the album title speaks for itself.

“Primarily it is a positive album about going back to writing songs that made us want to be in a band, or listen to bands in the first place and its an album about moving forward.”

“New Horizons” is set to release July 24th worldwide via Hardline Entertainment.

Death By Stereo Signs With Viking Funeral Records

Orange County, CA hardcore punk veterans Death By Stereo have announced they have signed with Viking Funeral Records, the label founded by Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge, Ken Seaton of Hardline Entertainment, and Suburban Noize Records. Death By Stereo’s sixth full-length studio album, “Black Sheep of the American Dream”, is set for a spring 2012 release.

“I am personally proud to be a part of Viking Funeral because Fletcher, Ken Seaton and the whole Suburban Noize family have the same DIY, never back down mentality that we have. Viking Funeral is a perfect home for us, as we’ve seen how labels work and the majority of them are more interested in making a quick buck instead of developing an artist that puts out great records,” commented Efrem Shulz from Death By Stereo. “Working with Viking Funeral brings us back to our early days in the hardcore and punk-rock scenes that birthed us, because they care about the music rather than what’s trendy. This record is a return to our roots and with the addition of our original bass player Paul Miner as producer we have re-established our signature sound and we managed to forge a new sonic path for Death by Stereo. Every individual in the band is excited to continue to shed light on the issues affecting our world and we plan to storm the globe with this record!”

Balancing chaos and consciousness is no easy task, and few bands will ever do it as well as Death By Stereo. Born in the same Orange County, CA scene that propelled bands like Throwdown, Eighteen Visions and Avenged Sevenfold into the national limelight, Death By Stereo have unleashed some classic hardcore punk-rock records over their 14 year career including 2001’s “Day of the Death” and 2003’s “Into the Valley of the Death”. The band’s relentless tour schedule has saw them tour alongside legendary groups like AFI, Sick Of It All, Rise Against, Thursday and the Vans Warped Tour, while earning a die-hard fan base across the globe.

On their new album “Black Sheep of the American Dream”, Death By Stereo have elevated their brand of conscious, politically charged hardcore punk-rock to the next level. Storming out of the gate harder, faster and louder than they ever have, the band has returned to their hardcore punk roots, and peppered their sound with crushing metal breakdowns and blazing guitar solos to create their most socially relevant and impassioned album to date. Attacking the system with a sonic barrage that only Death By Stereo can deliver, “Black Sheep of the American Dream” is a call to arms for the disenfranchised to stand up and fight back against a corrupt administration.

Death By Stereo will be direct support for Agnostic Front’s Hardcore Worldwide European tour with Naysayer throughout February.
