Shiny Toy Guns III on 180g 2LP + Download
The Shiny Toy Guns (STG) are a four piece alternative, electronic, dance and punk-rock band formed in Los Angeles, CA in 2003. Born in the indie/electro scenes of the early 2000s, STG released their first album, We Are Pilots, in 2006 via Universal Motown Republic with acclaimed success, selling over 300K plus albums and garnering a Grammy nomination on the strength of the three mainstream alt-rock singles, "Le Disko," "You Are The One," and "Rainy Monday."
Although the band enjoyed the above success and notoriety from their first album campaign, internationaly, the band developed communication breakdowns between the primary songwriters (Jeremy and Chad) and their female singer, Carah Faye. Frustrations grew and during the recording and writing process of STG's second album, Carah and the band dramatically parted ways.
The band then enlisted Sisely Treasure to take Carah's place for Season of Poison. The abum's first single "Ricochet!" climbed to #17 on the ALT chart. In 2009, the band released the Pete Schilling cover "Major Tom," which was a single from the band's remix album, Girls Le Disko, and was featured in a 2010 Lincoln MKZ commercial.
STG's new album III marks the return of Carah Faye as their lead singer and the return to their pioneering synth-pop and DIY ethic, with a collection of exuberant, intensely personal songs about life, love, loss and redemption. Highlights include "Waiting Alone," "Somewhere To Hide," "Speaking Japanese" and the Fleetwood Mac inspired "Fading Listening." Gatefold double 180g vinyl from Five Seven Music.
