    Steriogram Biography / Timeline
    The story of Steriogram begins in New Zealands North Island, June of 1999. Brad and Jake, longtime friends from a tiny town called Whangarei meet up with Tim and Tyson who have been friends for years in Auckland, and they start playing shows around the area as a melodic rock four-piece. Making a name for themselves with a manic live show they quickly start to build a loyal local following.

    They start touring, booking and organizing everything themselves while devoting less and less time to day jobs. Meanwhile the sound is developing as Tyson starts bringing his rap vocals into the mix. Realising the need for a full-time drummer, they enlist mutual friend Jared who actually OWNS a drumkit.

    The band releases the song White Trash in August 2001 on their own label, Sumo Music and shoots the White Trash video on a shoestring budget and a whole lot of favours. The song brings in airplay on various local and nationwide NZ radio stations as well as a good amount of Music Television play.

    By early 2002 everyone has either lost their day jobs or is about to, so they put their heads down and tour every corner of New Zealand in a tour of High Schools, Universities, and Pubs.

    After sleeping on floors in random houses throughout New Zealand, the band rents a beach house and writes and records a batch of new music, resulting in a bunch of new demos and many irate phone calls from the neighbours.

    They are contacted out of the blue by a U.S-based freelance A R scout, who managed to get substantial label interest with a handful of the new demos and a home-edited video of a live show. The band signed with Capitol Records in November 2002 and flew out to Los Angeles shortly after to meet with producers and managers.

    They spend January back home in the NZ summer writing more new material for the album, returning to the States in February to begin recording their debut album with Producer David Kahne. Many late nights and cases of Red Bull later they emerged with the 12 tracks of Schmack! Ready to face natural light again, the band gets into a van and starts touring, which is where they are now.
