BREAKERBOX opening for SEETHER at The Harbor, Buffalo, NY 7-12-12

Rock outfit Breakerbox (Christina DeNee and Scott Calandra) collaborated with producer Chris Baseford (Rob Zombie, Tommy Lee, John 5) on their brand new single “Summertime,” recorded at Tommy Lee’s Atrium Studios.  “Summertime”  is available on August 14 exclusively on Breakerbox.tv and on iTunes August 28th.  Breakerbox  reveals a behind-the-scenes video chronicling the recording of the song today (August 10) on YouTube.  See “Summertime” video here.

“Breakerbox is a talented, hardworking band and being able to dive into the studio with Scott and Christina was an absolute pleasure,” said producer Chris Baseford. ” ‘Summertime’ is going to blow some minds.  We were able to create a heavy, aggressive yet melodic, hooky sound which a lot of people are going to dig!  Can’t wait to finish the rest of the new songs in the works.”

Summertime,” is a departure from their darker debut album These Are Strange Days and captures the feeling of driving around in the summertime with your crush and just having fun.  Don’t let them fool you…the Breakerbox signature sound of hard driving guitars, integral rock drumming , unique funk synth work and DeNee’s powerhouse vocals are all there to prove #RockisAlive!  Even Tommy Lee praised the song when he messaged the band from the Motley Crue Tour giving them his rock stamp of approval.

“We are in a totally different place, a different mindset than at the time we recorded These Are Strange Days — it was in the midst of a bad Buffalo winter and we felt like we were on a little dark island,” said Christina DeNee. ” ‘Summertime’ was recorded in the middle of a Southern California summer, it is uptempo and reflects how we feel today..it’s a bigger, bolder rock sound and we weren’t afraid to take some chances.”

Adds Scott Calandra, “We have surrounded ourselves with great collaborators and players ,and with Chris, were able to take our music to a new place.  We truly are enjoying the fact we have found our sound and others get it and want to be a part of it.”

In addition to recording new material, the Buffalo, NY natives recently fronted a sold out show with  Seether  at the famed “Thursday at The Harbor,” concert where over 10,000 people were in attendance, the biggest turn out ever for an opening band in the history of the venue.  More dates coming soon.
