WHO IS STUNTDRIVER
Originally conceived as a “theatrical rock adventure” with a pair of wildly creative and immersive multi-media performances at Highways Performance Space/Gallery last year, STUNTDRIVER has honed itself into a sleeker vehicle for performance artist/music-maker Kym Priess’s outsized musical vision. Performing alongside Priess (vocals, synths) are former Oingo Boingo member John Avila (bass, backing vocals), Anton Söder (drum programming, keytar), Nightmare Air’s Jimmy Lucido (live drums) and Ryan James (guitars). The band are a torrid post-rock phenomenon combining industrial, electro, punk and dance elements into their bombastic, yet connected, existential mix. No one live show is the same. Antics may include but are not limited to white racecar suits, gold helmets, gold/black faces, Grace Jones-style costume changes, Janet Jackson-inspired choreography , visuals, props and audience interaction. The single BAD BATH is currently out on all platforms while PLASTIC FACES is due for release in October. LP out 2020.
