Street Drum Corps Brings the Noise This Summer on Projekt Revolution Tour

July 11, 2008

Special Drumline Contest and Mainstage Set Precedes New Album Due Out on Interscope '09

LOS ANGELES (RUSHPRNEWS) JULY 11, 2008- From John Bonham to Clyde Stubblefield to Guestlove, the drum has always been the backbone of any successful group. Hell, go further back in time, when drums were at the center of any tribal ritual. It's carnal. Primeval. A good song hits you in the head. A good beat nails you in the stomach. So in an era of squeaky-clean, technologically-enhanced and polished production, Los Angeles' Street Drum Corps (SDC) are more important than ever.

Kevin Lyman, founder of the Vans Warped Tour, summed SDC up perfectly when he called them a "punk rock Stomp." Trash cans. Barrels. Buckets. It's all fair game for brothers Bobby & Adam Alt and Frank Zummo, who furnish their live sets completely with used and found instruments.


Having honed and evolved their rock-band-meets-performance-art set for more than four years, playing shows at countless festivals in countless countries, the trio is currently prepping both a new studio album on Interscope Records (their follow-up to 2006's We Are Machines) and summer shows on Linkin Park's highly successful Projekt Revolution tour starting July 16 at Mansfield, MA's Tweeter Center.

If you've seen them live before, you already know SDC's shows are a primordial, stomping blast of energy, theatricality and passion. There's a reason why members of No Doubt, Bad Religion, and Revolution tourmates Atreyu all want to play with them. Why Conan O'Brien invited them to perform on his show. And why The Used's Bert McCracken has practically adopted them as his pet band.
SDC's diverse and vast tourmates-which include everyone from Matisyahu to The Deftones to 30 Seconds to Mars-are direct proof that the trio can survive and thrive in virtually any crowd. Unlike so many bands whose music automatically pigeonholes them to certain festivals, SDC have proven that words like "demographic" and "target audience" don't apply to them. To Street Drum Corps, the only target audience is anyone who appreciates unique performances and raucous, energetic music. SDC are more concerned with rhythm than genre. In their performances, one hears tribal, rock, punk, dance and industrial, all somehow blending together in a chaotic, beautiful mess.

Now, after conquering Warped Tour, Coachella, A Taste of Chaos, and any other tour that's gotten in their way, the trio is set to perform on the Main Stage at Projekt Revolution alongside Chris Cornell, Busta Rhymes, The Bravery and Linkin Park. In addition to introducing Linkin Park (in their own inimitable way), the group has been personally invited to perform select songs with the headliners.
Hearkening back to the past when shaman fed off the energy of the tribe's participants, the group will also be introducing a special contest where one winner per show will get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lead a drumline with SDC from the second stage direct to the main stage. Stay tuned for more details.

Formed in 2004, Bobby and Adam Alt originally started Experiment, a drum troupe that performed mostly to elementary schools. After hooking up with Zummo, the three decided to take breaks from their respective drumming gigs and became Street Drum Corps, playing their debut gig at Magic Mountain. After near-constant touring, the group hooked up with House of Pain's DJ Lethal, who produced their 2006 self-titled debut CD/DVD (Warcon Enterprises) featuring "Achilles" with Stomp's John Sawicki. Since then, their music has appeared on such shows as "Inked," "The Real World" and "Love Monkey," and the group recently recorded a cover of John Lennon's "Happy Christmas (War is Over)" with The Used's Bert McCracken.
