Los Angeles, CA
The LA-based hard rock band, Outlett, is officially on its way to the mainstream. Especially, with the release
of their latest music video for their single “Invincible” produced by Platinum Producer Toby Wright (Metallica, Three Doors Down, Alice In Chains). “Invincible,” was originally made famous by the one and only Pat Benetar, but Outlett has taken it the next level plugging in their own hard rock version bringing this hit song back to life for the young generation and beyond. Directed and produced by Katheryne KTEE Thomas and Mark Larranga from Relentless Vision, “Invincible” shows that Outlett is without a doubt a force to be reckoned with and is here to stay.
In addition to landing a slot opening on the Motley Crue & Aerosmith Tour, a slot on the Vans Warped Tour and direct support touring with Platinum selling Powerman 5000, the band’s songs have been seeing spins in multiple forms of media. The band has reached over 750,000 plays in a matter of a year and has a built solid army of over 50,000 friends on Myspace. The EP continues to receive rave reviews from a cast of critics across the country and beyond and they’ve reached over 10,000 units sold without major distribution and promotion. Their single gained the recognition of The World Famous KROQ in Los Angeles landing their single "Say Goodbye" on the air as well as the headlining slot on the famous KROQ Micro Brew Festival in Los Angeles. At Tom Morello's (Rage Against The Machine) invitation, Chastity played her djembe with Alice In Chains, Ben Harper, Filter and Cypress Hill at the CD release party for Morello's "The Nightwatchman." The band landed a Mobile Licensing deal with Ultrashort Media airing their video for “Walk Away” on Sprint & O2 (United Kingdom) networks and were the featured artist on Adrenaline Nation TV where their single "Walk Away" hit #1 which is being aired to over 100 million subscribers worldwide. The band also placed in the TOP 5 as one of the Best Bands in the Country out of thousands of submissions for the GETMELOADED on FUSE TV Contest sponsored by D’Addario, FUSE TV, Purevolume & TAMA where the band landed an endorsement deal. If that wasn’t enough, Outlett, was crowned “Rock Artist of the Year” & “Performing Artist of the Year” in the Los Angeles Music Awards, landed in the “Hot 100 Best Unsigned Bands” in Music Connection Magazine two years in a row and were selected from thousands of artists worldwide as one of the Top Unsigned Artists in the country in The Independent Artist Registry’s “Music Phone Book”, the Nation’s Top Music Industry Magazine.
For the past three years, Outlett has been steadily building its buzz within the infamous Hollywood club circuit, developing its style and incendiary live performance before an ever-growing fan base. Blending tribal drum beats courtesy of frontwoman Chastity Ashley with driving guitar riffs and a resonant vocal style that parallels Gwen Stefani in dynamics, this committed quartet has created a sound that is consistently commercial yet distinctly diverse.
Outlett’s unique style is a direct result of the eclectic batch of inspiration that each musician brings to the songwriting table. Each member is a graduate of Musician’s Institute where the band all met that allows this craftsmanship and diversity. With influences that range from Alice in Chains to My Chemical Romance, and from Incubus to Pantera, this band has assembled a musical mosaic of quality musicianship and pure passion. By channeling this raw emotion into explosive numbers like “Say Goodbye” and “Walk Away” it creates a driving force of fury that hits its audience like a musical juggernaut.
But Outlett’s solid songs are only part of its overall allure. Fusing its high-octane material into a captivating live show, the band releases a powerful one-two punch that immediately engages every person in every venue. They’ve headlined and SOLD OUT in their hometown such famous venues as the House of Blues Sunset, the El Rey Theatre, The Roxy Theatre & The Viper Room. And its buzz has extended well beyond its local Hollywood hometown where the band takes it on the road touring through multiple states including college campus tours such as the “ROCK THE CAMPUS TOUR” which covers multiple college campuses throughout the southwest. They’ve co-headlined with such acts as “The Long Beach Dub All Stars” (Sublime), as well as playing the Cal State Fresno’s Vintage Days Festival where the band took home the Grand Prize at their annual Battle of the Bands. The band has managed to build large fan bases in multiple cities where they are now asked to come back and headline due to the tremendous impact the band makes while coming through town. Outlett was also selected out of thousands of bands through Sonicbids to rock the stage at the Connexion International Music Festival in Las Vegas, The M.E.A.N.Y Festival in New York City, The Live @ Paintball Festival in Huntington Beach, the Live@ First Friday In Las Vegas and the Inkslingers Ball Worldwide Tattoo Tour. By complementing these high profile shows with a steady stream of spins on hot stations like 106.7 KROQ in Los Angeles, DMX Radio, Live365.com, Band Radio Live, The Indie Rock Show, Indiepodcasting.com, Alexa Radio, HMTV, BUZZ Radio, Celtica Radio, iRADIO LA, Indie 103.1 & 104.7 FM in Los Angeles, KCR in San Diego, KRZR in Fresno and so on, Outlett has already begun to infiltrate the greater Pacific Southwest and beyond.
And the band is primed and ready for the exciting ride ahead. The band is currently recording fresh material for their first full length CD with Veteran Producer Toby Wright. As the band embarks on its exciting ride ahead, it remains fixed on giving the kids the one thing that they need the most:
A genuine, emotional Outlett.
