FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW YORK CITY (February 9, 2010) –  STARK TO RELEASE THIRD STUDIO ALBUM RACE TO THE FLOO

STARK will release a third album of nine songs, Race To The Floor, March 9, 2010. The New York City CD Release Party will be held March 13th at 10pm at Arlene's Grocery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and the first 50 people in the door will receive a free STARK tote bag filled with a copy of the album and other goodies, like autographed posters. There will be several lines of t's and tanks to purchase at a discount for the nights of the parties only. The Pennsylvania CD release will be March 27th at Crocodile Rock Cafe in Allentown as part of Fetzer Fest III.

With the addition of Joe Hogan on guitar, expect to have your speakers rattling as you are reminded of 70's FM radio. STARK likes to joke that this is the new classic rock. The original hard rock trio has produced a completely DIY project with Hogan once again doing his magic behind the board, mixing and engineering at Loho Studios, Atlantic Recordings, and Big Blue Meenie. Drummer Eric Robel contributed all of the artwork, including taking the photos on a timer without a photographer. Finally, founder and front-woman Lani Ford, a multi ASCAP Plus award winner and Daisy Rock Guitars endorsed artist, financed the majority of the project while updating all of the sites, booking gigs and tours, running press and radio campaigns, and maintaining relationships with thousands of contacts. The band is already writing new material for an EP that will feature live tracks from the CD Release Party plus a cover or two

"It can be maddening," says Ford of completing the project with 3 people, "but it is very rewarding to know it's a product of our own blood, sweat, and beers!" The album has been "leaked" to a few of STARK's favorite radio and internet stations and has been receiving airplay as well as this comment from Douglas Craig at NYCMusic.net: "I got a chuckle when I saw the title--very Stark!...you guys have knocked this one right out of the park!

In 2009, STARK played GNYC-TV’s M.E.A.N.Y.Fest in NYC at The Studio at Webster Hall. STARK’s Hogan and Ford played the Indiegrrl in the Arts Conference and Showcase in Nashville. Ford was a guest host on the internet show Rew & Who and also DJ'd the New York Waste Compilation CD in the fall of 2009. Lani has appeared on Frankie Russo's Rock Chicks Live on chataboutit.com many times over the past year and was Spotlight Artist for the week of February 8, 2010. Lani also played a 10 day solo acoustic tour in the UK in November 2009, opening for the band Lilith's Army.

STARK will be returning to the UK in June 2010. STARK’s music video for the song “OH NO!” won Best Music Video at The New York International Independent Film and Video Festival in October 2009. In the meantime, STARK’s sophomore CD Put It To Your Head has been receiving great press and radio all over the world since it’s release in January 2008.
