High-energy pop-rock duo Oh No Not Stereo are busy tracking their second full-length album in not one, but four different studios in their hometown of Los Angeles. The band is handling their own production, but have enlisted an impressive team comprised of Jim Wirt (Incubus, Live, Something Corporate) to assist with instrumentation; Max Coane (Jackâ€™s Mannequin, The Rocket Summer, The Bronx) to assist with production; and Neal Avron (Fall Out Boy, Yellowcard, Everclear) to mix the record.
With a total of 15 tracks expected to make the cut, Oh No Not Stereo have found themselves heading in a slightly-new direction on their sophomore effort. The heavy use of pianos throughout the record, as well as the addition of a full quartet on nine of the songs, suggests the end result will likely be described as melodic rockâ€”with a twist of timelessness.
As one of 12 bands recently chosen out of over 4,000 to compete in MTV2â€™s Dew Circuit Breakout contest, Oh No Not Stereo are deservingly turning heads. The duoâ€™s D.I.Y. ethic has left them feeling optimistic about once again being free agents since freshly dissolving their contract with Takeover Records. â€œWeâ€™re doing this all on our own, and we couldnâ€™t be happier about it,â€ said frontman Skyler Nielsen.
Oh No Not Stereo are anticipating a first quarter 2008 release date for their new LP. Check out www.ohnonotstereo.com or www.myspace.com/ohnonotstereo for more information.
