live ‘stache: IAMDYNAMITE Announces The “Turn On The Stereo” Tour

September 11, 2013 Leave a comment

Iamdynamite Press PhotoSure, summer’s over, and you might be headed back to school. The days are getting shorter and the weather’s getting colder. If the impending seasons are getting you down, there’s no reason to fret, because the guys of IAMDYNAMITE are hitting the road again, and their mission is to turn those frowns upside down with their high-energy performances and catchy pop/rock songs.

Christopher Martin and Chris Phillips are packing up the van and criss-crossing the United States once more in support of their debut album, Supermegafantastic. The latest leg-called the “Turn On The Stereo” tour- starts at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, MI tomorrow, 9/12, and it concludes in Charlotte, NC on November 10th. A full list of dates can be found below, and tickets are currently on sale.

IAMDYNAMITE’s debut album, Supermegafantastic, has been garnering raves ever since it was released. Allmusic.com says “IAMDYNAMITE have a knack for catchy, rhythmically infectious punk-pop and garage rock anthems that grab your attention with an all-caps energy that’s hard to turn away from,” while Absolute Punk reports that “They clearly have a good time on their journey without dumbing their music down.” Huffington Post, meanwhile, counts Supermegafantastic as “among this year’s best.” Their live show has also received acclaim, and their inventive video clips have garnered over half a million combined views on YouTube.

The manic black and white video for “Stereo,” which you can currently hear on a radio station near you,is reminiscent of the White Stripes and showcases IAMDYNAMITE‘s unique brand of infectious rock.

live ‘stache: The SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC Adventures of IAMDYNAMITE Continue

December 7, 2012 1 comment

IAMDYNAMITE extend their tour until February as “Where Will We Go” hits the Top 40 on Billboard’s Alternative Chart.

iamdynamite live
After spending much of 2012 criss-crossing the country, the energetic twosome IAMDYNAMITE will be hitting the road once again at the top of 2013. Chris and Chris will be on the West Coast for a string of dates, starting in San Diego (where their latest single, “Where Will We Go,” is the #1 most played song on 91X) and concluding on February 2nd in Dallas, Texas. A full list of dates can be found below, and tickets for all dates are on sale as of today, December 7th.

IAMDYNAMITE‘s debut album, SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC, is a must-hear record. Allmusic.com says,”IAMDYNAMITE have a knack for catchy, rhythmically infectious punk-pop and garage rock anthems that grab your attention with an all-caps energy that’s hard to turn away from,” while Absolute Punk reports that “They clearly have a good time on their journey without dumbing their music down.” Huffington Post, meanwhile, counts SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC as “among this year’s best.”

 

When Chris Martin (guitar/vocals) and Chris Phillips (drums/vocals,) the animated personalities who make up IAMDYNAMITE, aren’t busy wooing fans with their raucous live performances or exchanging sweaty hugs with new friends on the road, they keep themselves busy making cool music videos. The clip for their current single,“Where Will We Go”, takes viewers on a wild ride (on a two-person bicycle!) through the lens of a GoPro camera. “Where Will We Go” recently debuted in the Top 40 of Billboard’s Alternative Rock tracks chart, and is gaining steam at radio. The manic black and white video for “Stereo”, the radio hit that put SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC on the map, is reminiscent of the White Stripes and showcases IAMDYNAMITE‘s unique brand of infectious rock.

live ‘stache: IAMDYNAMITE Announce Tour Dates With Sum 41

September 14, 2012 Leave a comment

The charismatic rock duo, IAMDYNAMITE, will be an explosive addition to Sum 41’s North American Tour starting this November.

The Detroit-based rock duo IAMDYNAMITE will be joining Canadian punk rockers Sum 41 along their North American Tour beginning November 2nd at House of Blues in Chicago, IL and concluding December 14th for the KDGE Xmas Show in Dallas, TX. IAMDYNAMITE spent all summer touring Europe and criss-crossing the US in support of their debut LP, SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC.  The band will continue the rigorous touring schedule in select US cities through October 20th prior to getting on the Sum 41 tour.  See a full list of tour dates below.

When Chris and Chris are not busy wooing fans with their high energy live performances or exchanging “sweaty hugs” to new friends on the road, the duo are making cool music videos. The newest and dizzyingly fun “Where Will We Go” takes viewers on a wild ride through the lens of a GoPro camera. The manic black and white video for “Stereo,” the radio hit that put SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC on the map, is reminiscent of the White Stripes and showcases the unique IAMDYNAMITE brand of infectious rock.

Videos: “Stereo” | “Where Will We Go”

IAMDYNAMITE are Christopher Martin (Guitar, Vox) and Chris Phillips (Drums/Vox), armed with a single guitar, a basic drum kit and locked-in harmonies creating an energy that sounds like five on stage. They honed their sound and vision while coming up in the rock scene of Detroit, MI and tireless touring schedule throughout the Midwest.

The band’s distinctive sound is influenced, in part, by what Drummer Chris Phillips calls “the power rock of the 90s”, while Guitarist/ Lead Vocalist Christopher Martin points to “strong melodies and lots of energy” as a primary focus for the songwriting.
