After a 10-year absence from the public eye, Bang Camaro have reunited following the success of having their song, “Push Push (Lady Lightning),” in the trailer and on an episode of the HBO series Peacemaker.
With their newfound success, band leaders Alejandro Necochea, Bryn Bennett, and Dave Riley started talking about music again. They are five songs deep into the recording process for their third album “Bang Camaro III” which is reminiscent of their earlier work while continuing to push the limit of what the world’s only gang vocal-based metal band had done previously. Their first single, “Too Fast to Fall in Love,” was released to all streaming services on December 1st.
Bang Camaro blasted onto the Boston music scene in 2005, filling the metal and hard rock void of that time by providing music reminiscent of groups like Def Leppard and Skid Row. The band is comprised of the typical drums, bass, and two guitars but also boasts 20 lead vocalists to help bring their signature sound to life without backing tracks. Together they have toured the US and Canada for five straight years, appearing at festivals such as Lollapalooza and Summerfest. The relentless touring, coupled with the releases of their debut self-titled album in 2007 and 2009’s follow-up, “Bang Camaro II,” helped them get appearances on national television shows like Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and MTV Spring Break.
Correspondent Robert Cavuoto spoke with Bang Camaro guitarists and founding members Alejandro Necochea and Bryn Bennett about the band’s decision to reunite after the success of having a song on the Peacemaker series, the importance of releasing singles prior to the album’s release, and even how Motley Crue influenced their first single.
