The Stars Explode / Press

“Having drummed in bands since he was 13, Edmunds is comfortable with his move to the front of the stage. He credits Jeff Carlson, his bandmate in '90s hard-poppers Gladhands, for schooling him in the arts of writing and arranging. He's also quick to cite those around him now. "My job is made easier by the caliber of guys I'm playing with..."”

“Led by former Gladhand and all-around nice guy Doug Edmunds, The Stars Explode is all about happy guitars and even happier hooks.”

“The majority of the songs are upbeat and downright catchy. There are also many layers within each song, but they blend together to form a finely tuned whole that comes across as interesting rather than just noisy. There is something new to discover about the album upon each listen.”
