“Ronin” is opening up for Buckcherry December 19th 2014 at Starland Ballroom. I had the pleasure of being asked to do the photo shoot with the band to help promote them as well as their upcoming first live performance. These guys are more then just a band to me they are like family, the countless shows, the laughter and the friendships have kept a bond between us. I wish these guys all the best in the near future and for years to come.
The word RONIN brings thoughts of the Japanese culture, leaderless Samurai, wanderers with no home, or maybe even car chases involving Robert De Niro. The meaning of “wave man” (Ronin in English terms) is the common ground amongst David, Stone, Matt, Mayhem, Andrew, and Thomas in the advent of the band RONIN.
Born from the remaining members of Scarlet Carson, Life Without Warning, and Red 13. These six musicians were once part of a something that had a future beyond the typical music industry landscape. Collectively as individuals they have shared the stage in the past with notable acts such as Papa Roach, Motley Crue, Shinedown, Buckcherry, Halestorm, Sevendust, Paramore, Stone Sour, RED, Saving Abel, Skid Row, All That Remains, Steel Panther, and Fuel to name a few; alongside singles that span across the internet airwaves of iHeart Radio to your local Greater Media radio station. These six warriors have the experience, charisma, and musicianship to bring their now revitalized efforts above and beyond their past endeavors and pave a road straight down the throat of the record business.
The rich, powerful vocals of David coupled with the melodic, metal and blues infused guitars of Stone build the foundation to compliment the classic rock stylings of Matt and thrash, funk blends of Mayhem. Thomas adds dynamic with his aggressive, yet perfectly placed accents to bring new dimension to the rhythm section, while the coloration and overtones Andrew provides on the keys rounds out the spectrum. From the beginning to the end of each song you are captivated by emotion and imagery only Hamlet could write about or Van Gogh could paint.
United they now stand with a purpose and a place. There Is a W.AR. Coming… We are the fallen, We Are Ronin.
