The Space Sharks – Driving Rock and Roll.

Based in Maryland USA, The Space Sharks’ big guitars and hard-hitting drums are in full swing on their independently-produced self-titled debut CD. Opening with the fast and heavy "Run For Cover," and closing with the acoustic/electric "Perfect," it’s gaining fans everywhere.

“I'm really glad people are digging the music!” says guitarist/lead vocalist Lonnie Richard. "It might be because of the way we recorded the songs--going for takes that kind of hit you in the gut, rather than thinking about things in a way like ‘Okay, here comes this part, and I'm going to do this thing I've worked out for hours until all the spontaneity and life have been sucked out of it.’" He laughs. "Instead, we went 'Yeah, this feels right!' when we had a take we all liked, which most often was the first or second take."

“Yeah, the response has been amazing! We are forever grateful to the people who like the songs." says drummer/backing vocalist Mike Martino. "We definitely tried to keep that live feel and energy, even on a slower song like ‘Fools,’ which actually might be my favorite.”

Together with bassist Bob Bergeron, the power-trio kicks into high gear. Lon adds "Bob's a melodic madman and probably the loudest bass-player I’ve ever heard! It's really a blast with the three of us rocking out; we’ve all been friends since high school, so this is a dream come true. We’ve been in different bands over the years but decided to form The Space Sharks in 2010 and never looked back!.

Mastered by Jonathan Wyner, whose talents can be heard in the music of Aerosmith, David Bowie and others, "The Space Sharks" sound is crisp and big. Slap on a pair of headphones for trippy panning effects and swirling guitars. It's The Space Sharks at their best. Yeah, baby.
