Descending New Angels / Bio

"It's amazing what can happen in a few short years when the people around you believe in you and you follow your passion!" --Randy Shanks/Descending New Angels

The fall of 2010 was one awesome ride for Descending New Angels! The band opened for National Act Cracker at Alton's great amphitheatre. DNA members were teen fans of Cracker well before taking the stage with them. The band shared a trailor with Devon Allman, who is fast becoming a legend in his own right. What a Ride.

In September and October, DNA was interviewed and performed live on St. Louis radio stations and a few internet stations too. The band also performed live on Fox2 in Morning Show.

DNA is currently focused on recording its second album. January and February they will remain in the St. Louis area at the studio, with only a few local bookings. Late spring they are planning a southern tour.

Just two weeks after their album release, Descending New Angels was contacted for a live radio performance and interview. Soon after five songs featured on the album were aired on two St. Louis radio stations. DNA offers a blues-rock alternative with hints of classic and southern rock, blues and grunge, a symphonic style and constant dance between acoustic and electric guitars. Acoustical starts build into an intricate classical texture throughout each song. Enters an impressive lead guitar with speed, agility and alternating rock riffs and blues bends. The lead vocalist silences a noisy club with passionate delivery and amazing control, moving from soft melodic tones to soulful bellows. DNA has played nearly 200 shows along the Mississippi. KDHX radio host Dan Kinney compared them to Gov't Mule. If you enjoy Pearl Jam, Sound Garden, Staind, 3 Doors Down, check out DNA.
