Instrumental electronic rock band STS9’s meteoric rise to the forefront of the international music scene began nearly 18 years ago in Atlanta, GA, and since that time they’ve headlined America’s most classic theaters, arenas, amphitheatres, and large music festivals. The band consistently lands themselves on Pollstar Magazine’s top touring charts in the country, with recent average attendance of over 5,000 fans per city on full fledged tours.
The band’s eleventh album, WHEN THE DUST SETTLES, keeps with XLR8R Magazine’s exclamation that STS9 is "one of the country's most intriguing, innovative outfits around.” WTDS debuted at #1 on the iTunes Electronic Charts and found itself in Billboard’s Top 25 that same year. Their self-owned record label, 1320 RECORDS, currently boasts 400,000 unique downloads of over 1,500 releases by more than 100 artists including Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Big Gigantic, ESKMO and The Glitch Mob.
STS9 truly does it all: from headlining stages at the countries biggest festivals, to selling out shows around the country as an acoustic set-up in opera houses or as an electronic act in amphitheaters, to even performing with the likes of Jay-Z in arenas, to running their own record label, 1320 RECORDS, to using their voice as a platform for change and raising significant amounts of money towards activism efforts (including $150,000 to The Make it Right Foundation, paving the way to rebuild a house in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans). Pushing boundaries is all in a day’s work for STS9.
STS9 is currently touring with their largest production rig ever, using the latest cutting edge sound and lighting to deliver one of the most audibly and visually stunning shows in all of North America today.
