A Million Pieces Announce Free Release Party

04/22/2011
.
A Million Pieces will celebrate the release of their self-titled Scallywag Records EP debut with a Key Club Record Release party on Tuesday, April 26, offering free admission to the general public before 9 p.m.

A Million Pieces was produced by Jerrod "Skins" Bettis (original OneRepublic drummer), who will also perform with the band that evening. The creative partnership has proved to be seamless, with Skins capturing the band's musical vision and bringing their Pop ambition organically to the forefront.

Regarding the band's sound, A Million Pieces guitarist Peter Vanderloos says : "I'm a big fan of Pop music and we're from different Pop genre backgrounds, always looking to blend new and unique influences. As a band, we're open to the bigger audience and our goal is to crossover without selling out."

Skins, who is signed to Ryan Tedder's Patriot Games Entertainment, delivered performances that maintain the band's raw, energetic stage presence and sound, while adding just the right mix of studio polish.

Comments Skins: "After producing pop record, after rock record, after hip hop record, it was a natural progression to be involved with a young, up-and-coming rock band. These guys are awesome and talented. They're really cool guys. It became a personal project for me and it was really awesome to be a part of it."

A Million Pieces share a genuine bond of brotherhood and write fearlessly autobiographical songs. Guitarist/vocalist Peter Vanderloos says honesty inspires their songs and fuels their performances. "Our lives have gotten 180 degrees better and we're growing everyday," he says.

Along with Vanderloos, A Million Pieces is Morgan Freed (lead vocals), Ryan Brown (bass) and Stephen Soss (keyboards and assorted instruments). Their Scallywag debut EP, which features six solid, catchy and extremely well-crafted tracks, is their first outing as a band, but they're all highly accomplished and serious musicians. Soss, who is viewed as the band's consummate musician plays drums, trumpet, banjo and accordian (in addition to keyboards). "I never thought from playing in Metal and Ska bands in Denver, that I'd be in Los Angeles playing Pop/Rock with three dudes I absolutely love," he notes.

In celebration of A Million Pieces' EP debut and Key Club Record Release party, the band is offering five lucky pair of fans VIP entrance and gifting of complete band/swag packages. Please visit Facebook.com/pages/A-Million-Pieces or twitter.com/ampmusicla for more information.
