MAXX12 will also be showcasing their music for a couple interested labels down in Oceanside, California on: 08/30/13 at the well known PIER VIEW PUB: Phone: (760) 757-2827.This is proving to be a stellar year for MAXX12 starting at the beginning of the year with their new release: "LIAR" keeping them at #1 in ALL Santa Clara Counties for several weeks on the local charts. Following upon that release was "HELL'S HEROES" which has been described as a cross between Queen/Beatles and Blackfoot the song continues 2 months later with well above average sales for the song! Look for MAXX12 at a venue near you soon!”

“The ability to develop themes into suitable lyrics requires skill and creativity. Thankfully those abilities can be found in the band MAXX12. The band’s latest release “Hell’s Heroes” is the brainchild of T Michael Riddle. The basis for this honeyed ballad comes from a 1932 film of the same name. It’s the story of a group of men who rob a bank (killing the teller) and flee. In the desert they encounter a woman who is dying after having given birth. She entrusts her son to the robbers in the hopes of getting the child to his father and to safety. Ironically, the father of the child is the very same teller they killed in the holdup. MAXX12 cleverly conveys the paradigm shift in their latest track. The song reveals how life will always test your worth even when you’re destined for Hell. Riddle’s suggestive guitar inflections and tonality take you to the scorching desert and engage you in the race to make it out alive. “Hell’s Heroes” is definitely a song to add to you”

“Recently, the Rock world observed the one year anniversary of the passing of guitar virtuoso and rock legend Ronnie Montrose (1947-2012). The loss of this rock hero left a lasting impression on the members of MAXX12. The friendship formed by T. Michael Riddle (guitar, vocals), Jon Hampton (bass) and Ronnie Montrose back in 1984 shaped a lifelong bond as well as a congruent musical collaboration. The results of that potent partnership are evident in songs such as “Racecar”, “Wild Years”, and “Politico.” The band’s song “He Rocked the Nation” is a tribute to Ronnie and was written using album and song titles off of Montrose and Gamma recordings. The tribute song is a perfect blend of Montrose musical riffs with the distinguishable MAXX12 sound. It is without a doubt that Ronnie Montrose’ legacy will live on in these songs as well as countless other tunes, projects and ventures.”

“And so, in view of the absence of Montrose, MAXX12 has acquired the skills and talent of Aaron Leigh as their new producer. Aaron’s extensive musical background includes playing bass for Echo of Souls and accompanying The Frank Hannon (Tesla) Band on their 2013 National Tour. This new alliance with Leigh, plus the making of a video for “Bang Yer Gone” with close friend and veteran actor Patrick Kilpatrick (The Presidio, Eraser), is keeping MAXX12 busy in 2013. Fans will recall Kilpatrick’s MC duties at the “End of the World Party” at Nine Lives Club in Gilroy, California. Over 300 attendees rocked the venue with MAXX12 as they expounded the presumed prophecy of 2012. It is no wonder that MAXX12 continues to sit at the #1 position on Reverbnation’s local chart for Santa Clara County and maintaining well over 60,000 fans worldwide from all combined sites (i.e. Myspace, I tunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc).”

“Any true Rock music devotee will declare with assuredness that the Rock scene is alive and well in the 21st century. Many of the masterminds of Metal Music have endured the test of time and continue to pack venues throughout the year. New groups are also rising from the embers that sustain this music genre called Rock. MAXX12 is one such band that is keeping the Metal Music scene thriving and successful in this new era. They offer a perfect blend of fresh licks with a touch of timeless timbres. It is no wonder that the dedicated disciples of Rock music are keeping MAXX12 at the top of the charts both locally and nationally. Be sure to catch them at a venue near you in 2013!”

“These days, MAXX12 band members can be found in the studio hammering out some brand new tunes for their listeners. Joining MAXX12 in the studio is Aaron Leigh (Echo of Souls, Frank Hannon Band) at the helm providing his production prowess (and vocals), and Duane Hayes at the boards. If the folks associated with this recording venture are any indication, these fresh tracks promise to propel MAXX12 into the forefront of the Rock Music scene. ”

“MAXX 12's "BANG! Yer' Gone!" is hitting the airwaves at KUKQ out of Phoenix, Arizona!”

“With enlivening tunes such as “Wild Years” and “Mongoose” making their mark on the Reverbnation charts, MAXX 12 (#89 Nationally) is continuing to prove that good quality music with an influential message is still being sought after by the listening public. Rock icon Dave Davies once stated: “Good rock music always tends to be around.“ The timeless reputation of The Kinks has been proof positive that a good rock band’s music will time and again re-emerge to remind us of what attracted us to their compositions in the first place. This assurance seems to be the case with MAXX 12. Their guitar riffs, drum kicks and bass licks have a way of stimulating your melodious senses and keep you longing for more. Requests from the fans for a live show will soon be realized as MAXX 12 is in the planning stages for a multi city tour. More details will follow as the dates become available. Stay tuned to see if MAXX 12 will be making a stop in your neck of the woods!”


“February 2013,San Jose, Ca: Since its release in late 2010, Maxx12’s “Raw” has been ascending the music charts as it amasses multitudes of fans eager to embrace their post-apocalyptic wake-up call. Edgy, epic, and eclectic, are all terms that have been used to describe San Jose based band Maxx 12. Their fervent appeal to their listeners is accruing a fan base that is taking them to the top of online music charts both nationally and internationally. These California rockers are no nonsense when it comes to conveying a hard hitting message about our current state of affairs. In January, MAXX 12’s newest member, drummer Ronnie T. Cascinai, was featured on the Paiste Cymbals Wall of Fame at the NAMM convention in Anaheim, California. This rousing accolade leaves little doubt that MAXX 12 is the band to seek out to get your fist pumping and consciousness flowing in 2013.”

“MAXX12 – a new rock band with a provocative, post-apocalyptic message – will make an unforgettable debut at Gilroy’s 9 Lives Club on Friday, June 17, 2011.

In fact, MAXX12’s entire musical catalogue is based on outrage with the government and serves as a call to action for those fed up with how the country is run. Through songs from its debut CD, Raw, the band will express its frustration with the state of the country, and encourage the audience to stand up for their rights and join the MAXX12 Nation. ”
