To reach a 20th anniversary is a major accomplishment for any band--and in 2017, STS9 will officially hit that milestone. To mark the occasion, the acclaimed and adventurous electronic rock band has announced their celebrations will kick off with a three-night stand at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO September 8-10 featuring a slew of support acts including some of the band's longtime friends.
Sound Tribe Sector Nine
Following their multiple-night takeovers in Los Angeles, Austin and Chicago already this year, acclaimed and adventurous electronic rock band STS9 announced today (2/7) the dates for their spring "Get Loud Tour," named for the lead single off their latest full-length album, THE UNIVERSE INSIDE.
Sound Tribe Sector Nine has been a uniquely special force in the music world for many years now. Their evolution as musicians has been as other worldly as the content of their music. Like any true long lasting band, evolution is necessary for longevity. Innovation has been at their forefront for two decades. Their energy and creativity is what brings loyal fans back to see them time and time again. As we made another revolution around the sun, we are presented with a new year to celebrate change and growth.

STS9 released their 6th studio album, The Universe Inside, on their homegrown label 1320 Mission Control on September 2, 2016, and it represents their first such release since Ad Explorata was released in 2009. This would also be the first release for “STS9 2.0” with Alana Rocklin since her taking over the staggering bass responsibilities for STS9 following David “Murph” Murphy’s departure in 2014.

Following the official announcement that their new album, THE UNIVERSE INSIDE--the band's first new full-length studio album in nearly seven years--is coming September 2, acclaimed electronic rock band STS9 has now revealed dates for a fall headlining tour in its support.
The members of STS9—Hunter Brown (guitar/sequences), Jeffree Lerner (percussion), David Phipps (keyboards/synths), Zach Velmer (drums) and Alana Rocklin (bass)—went through a lot over the course of making this record. In order to connect and express something more direct than they could with the music alone, the band chose to utilize more lyrics than they have on any of their previous efforts.
