Lead guitarist Jimmy Hitula comments, “I’m super f***ing excited about the release! We’ve worked hard and waited a long time to deliver this beast of an album to the world. This is by far the hardest, heaviest and most diverse album we have ever created.” Drummer Dave Sundberg adds, “We really managed to carve out the best from our influences. Ranging from thrash metal, hardcore to the huge choruses of 80´s heavy metal and mold it into our proudest achievement to date, Now And Forever!”

New York, NY – (February 7, 2012) –U.K. based hard rock band, Starseed, is preparing to hit the US like a roundhouse kick of rock with their debut of Peace Machine on February 21, 2012.  AOL Music will be holding a full CD listening party for the entire week. Additionally, throughout the month of February leading up to the release, fans will be able to preview select tracks from the album at today, February 7th, on February and on February 14th and on on February 20th.

Starseed, who includes Russell Spence (Vocals, Guitars), Gerald Gill (Guitar, Vocals), Peter Wicker (Guitar), Murray McChlery (Bass, Vocals) and Andrew Spence (Drums, Vocals), produce some of the most satisfying melodic hard rock. Epic energy, powerful, and riff driven rock with electrifying stage shows, their music grasps many elements of the post grunge scene drawing influences from early Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains to the power and torment of Soil. More recent comparisons include the tenacity and energy of Stone Sour and intense melody of Alter Bridge.

Many members of the band were raised in Africa (South Africa and Zimbabwe) until re-locating to the U.K. where Starseed completed the current lineup and achieved success. Starseed has played major festivals alongside Rage Against The Machine, Rob Zombie, and Linkin Park. Most recently, they performed at the 2011 Download Festival.  With these achievements, Starseed are also proud endorsees of PRS Guitars, Blackstar Amps, Tama Drums, Roland, Sabian Cymbals, Rotosound Strings, Protection Racket and TC Electronic. Their reception by fans and media in the US has been extremely positive and welcoming.
