IAMDYNAMITE Armed with a single guitar and basic drum kit, IAMDYNAMITE have quickly established them selves as a rock and roll force to be reckoned with. The musicianship is solid, the tunes are irresistible and infectious and their energy on stage has been appropriately described as "feverishly fun". After spending much of 2012 criss-crossing the United States including a tour with Sum 41, the energetic twosome Iamdynamite will be hitting the roads of Europe with a free showcase gig at the Rockhalcafe on 4 March 2013. Iamdynamite are Christopher Martin (Guitar, Vox) and Chris Phillips (Drums/Vox). The band's distinctive sound is influenced, in part, by what Chris calls "the power rock of the 90s", while Christopher points to "strong melodies and lots of energy" as a primary focus for the songwriting. Though some may assume a band made up of only two instruments might be rather limited, the big explosion of sound they bring to the stage has inspired more than a few critics to observe, " Iamdynamite are two guys who sound like five". In 2008, Iamdynamite produced their first EP and subsequently their debut full-length album “Supermegafantastic” followed in of 2011. Producer Matt Noveskey's objective with the album was simple, he explains "We didn't want to do something they wouldn't be able to pull off live and we didn't want to do something that didn't sound like them, the live show is so energetic and we really wanted the album to be a true representation of that, which is why we recorded on analog tape with very minimal layering." Their record “Supermegafantastic” includes the irresistible "Stereo", the dirty blues infused shredder "Ms. Jones", the infectious crowd pleasing "Hi Lo" and the urgent rocker "Where Will We Go", a tune that drives so hard it should come with the disclaimer, Warning: Song may inspire speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. It recently debuted in the Top 40 of Billboard’s Alternative Rock tracks chart, and is gaining steam at radio. The buzz Iamdynamite have been generating on the road in 2011 is more than evident online. Nearly every day, the band's Facebook and Twitter accounts grow substantially with “likes” and raves from new fans who saw the dynamite duo the night before and the iTunes downloads of their new album. On 4 March 2013, the fuse will be lit, as Iamdynamite are ready to explode at the Rockhalcafe! Be part of their show and remember the entrance is free!
