A life of pain. Stalephish lives it and sings about a life of skateboarding, drinking, and moms on their debut album “rock n roll revert”. Recorded & mixed in January of 2013 by Detroit’s own Bill Kozy (Speedball, Grinder, sound engineer for Cheaptrick) and mastered by Andy Patalan (Electric Six, Sponge) it was originally released on their own label “shred to the grave” records in Oct of 2013. Midway thru 2014 “Not Like You” records picked it up and re-issued the full length on LP after seeing the guys roll thru Albuquerque, NM on their two week “shred the southwest” tour in March of 2014.
Stalephish started in October of 2012. Skate, destroy, rock n roll is what it’s about. Vocalist Eric Scott and Bassist Michael Walker (of three chord lords) we’re looking to play some good old skate rock. And that's somewhat of a rare commodity here in the Midwest… Responded was Matt Bishop (of many bands including Disco Assault, Jim Abusive & Cigarette Burns, Scurvies) who recruited old time friend and skate “date” & pro skater Garold Vallie. The two meet way back when Garold was drumming in the short lived Detroit punk sensation captain feedback and matt was screaming with the scurvies back in the late 90’s. The band as a whole had crossed paths skating and local shows in the past and when they finally got together things just clicked…
A very successful shred the southwest tour in the spring of 2014 showed what we are all about: playing 14 shows in 16 days, destroying every dive bar, DIY Venue, and skate spot we passed along the way!
Winter of 2014 will bring skatepark sessions, studio time and a new release planned for early in 2015. An East Coast tour is in the works for late spring / summer and continues where we left off on the West Coast. The skating and music approach follows one rule: there are no rules! Do it with style and have fun… Skate, Destroy, Rock N Roll.
