The members of STS9Hunter 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.

The 16th annual Summer Camp Music Festival shined vibrantly Friday morning, as fans from across the nation flooded through the gates of the glorious Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, Illinois for another epic celebration of music, arts and life. Born in 2001, the monumental event has grown to be one of the most celebrated Midwest events of the summer, hosting national acts such as Neil Young, Trey Anastasio, Steve Miller Band, Tom Petty, Widespread Panic and many, many more.

Ah, the fresh smell of spring. The bird songs are swirling, people are smiling, and the sweet sounds of music fills the damp air. This time of year is special for a multitude of reasons, however for many concert-goers this time of year means one crucial thing, music festivals are upon us. The festival scene have grown exponentially in the last five years, many starting as underground gatherings that have since blossomed into extravagant music and arts communities, drawing hundreds of thousands of fans from across the globe.

STS9--started the new year with a four-night takeover of the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO which included a special New Year’s Day charity dinner event benefitting Conscious Alliance. 600 lucky fans joined the electronic rock quintet for a memorable evening that the band is now making available for all to experience via BitTorrent Bundle.

The title of this review does not just come from my opinion as a music writer in the scene since the mid-nineties. I have heard this from nearly every person that I have heard talk about STS9 for the last year or so including members of the band. I was lucky enough to catch half of their four night run at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, and I saw them at least three other times in the past year.

2015 is already looking to be a big year for STS9. The acclaimed instrumental electronic rock band—who will kick off the new year in Denver with four nights at the Fillmore Auditorium--have announced multiple night runs in Aspen, Chicago and Athens for February and March.
