Named for their approach to the music business, “No 1 Left Standing” is leaving just that in their wake. 2 time winner of 106.7 KBPI’s Best Band in Denver Contest, this “Aggressive Hip-Hop”, 6 piece live band has left the competition in their seats time and time again. Formed by front man James Belarde, this diverse collection of musicians screams talent and originality. Often compared to
“Rage against the Machine”, most likely due to the politically charged, no holds barred nature of their music, anyone who spends time near this group can sense success on the horizon for the “gas mask society”.
Live and on stage is the place to catch No 1 Left Standing if you truly want to get the full picture of what this band is all about. Energy and intensity are their trademarks and they bring it to the stage on every occasion. You may have seen them on a number of KBPI bills opening for the likes of Korn, Avenged Sevenfold and other industry names. You might have also caught them amongst the ranks of monthly showcase performances from 8th ElemEnt Entertainment, a Colorado-Based Independent Record Label with which the band teamed up in 2011 to release their first full-length album: “Fine American Mental Product” or “F.A.M.P.”. Since joining the team, “No 1 Left” has continued to flourish, adding new dimensions to their repertoire and finding a home amongst the confines of what is quickly becoming Colorado’s largest and most prominent entertainment organization.
Plans for the future show signs of nothing but further progress. Tour locations are being opened all over the country and you are likely to see No 1 Left Standing in your city very soon. Physical and digital distribution of the current and future projects provides mass access to this once underground treasure. The band’s next album, titled “Day of the Dog” is slated for release in December 2012 with production from Colorado Sound, Denver’s premier recording studio and release under 8th ElemEnt Entertainment.
