Album Notes
SlingshotVenus: a merciless, unyielding, disjointed foundation for hit-on-the-head melodies. The sound of something familiar but yet like nothing ever heard. Manic chaos wrapped in eccentric velvet, a graceful shot into the glittering sky. Theirs is a darkly textured original and complex sound that is not limited in scope or structure and overturns pre-conceived ideas regarding musical boundaries.

Tobias Hawkins (vocals/percussion/flesh siren) has had his share of success creating unique and popular music. Perhaps best known as the voice and writer of words for Laundry (legendary post-Primus excursion led by Tim (Herb) Alexander), he was also a founding member (on drums) and credited songwriter of pop heroes The Counting Crows.

Patrick McEvoy (5000 hammering guitars) and Richard Doporto (slinky bottom end/engineer/ producer) have been spinning their uncommon musical web together as a team for several years, honing their instrumental and recording skills. Robin Eckman (drums/mixed drinks) adds a pounding and musical bedrock underneath it all.

As a team, SlingshotVenus is making a heavy, aggressive,
meticulously chaotic sound, beautiful and dangerous - intelligent insanity for music lovers who aren't afraid to enjoy the challenge of something different. In doing so, SlingshotVenus has successfully transcended categorization.
