Birthed in high school music classes and Northwest garages and raised on a heavy diet of classic R&B, Seattle grunge and melodic rock ‘n’ roll, HYPER STATIC UNION enters retail May 9 with an album that is intensely original, instantly memorable and immensely compelling. HYPER STATIC UNION was first discovered by Grammy-winning band Third Day, which has chosen HSU to be the first release from its own Third Day Productions. Third Day Productions recently forged a partnership with new Rocketown Records imprint, RKT, to release debut CD, Lifegiver, guaranteeing HYPER STATIC UNION as a major priority for Christian music gatekeepers this summer.
With influences ranging from Parliament to Led Zeppelin, from Seal to Sade to Sting to Steely Dan, it’s easy to see why Shawn Lewis (guitar/vocals), Ray Burnham (drums), Mike Jackson (bass) and Bryan Albrechtson (guitar) don’t want to limit their sound to just one definition. Instead, this four-piece act from Vancouver, Wash. crafts its own style of pure musical excellence and significant lyrical impact, sure to impress and capture the high school/college crowd. Prepare to meet HYPER STATIC UNION, the band that will redefine modern rock.
"This band is unlike any other out there. Shawn Lewis is hands down the most talented guy I know. And still, it's not just one of those bands with a main guy surrounded by whoever just to fill in the holes. Each guy brings such a vital part that adds to an exciting sound and live performance. People can expect to be rocked by the music and challenged as well by a lyric that is not compromised or stale. This is something totally original." —Mac Powell (Third Day)
“LIFEGIVER is a really exciting record. The songs and sounds are fresh. The melodies are catchy, and this record rocks. These guys are great at weaving so many cool elements together, blending heavy rock guitars, soulful vocals, and infectious grooves to create something original and refreshing. Not only can these guys deliver in the studio, but they also have an incredible live show.”
—Brad Avery (Third Day)
