Theo (x-Lunachicks) and the Skyscrapers are Back with New CD and Tour

Theo and the Skyscrapers are back with a new CD entitled, 'So Many Ways To Die,' which is self-released on the band's own label, Dark Daddy Records.

Theo and the Skyscrapers Release New CDThe new record is a noticeable more mature full-length that shows significant growth and undeniable band chemistry. The ambitious album is more focused and climactic, mixing electronic elements with hypnotic, dark dance. Check out an advance mp3 of the cut Jealousy Died.

For anyone unfamiliar with Theo & her bandmates:

Theo & The Skyscrapers consist of a trio of renowned New York City musicians: Theo Kogan, former lead singer of the legendary all-female band Lunachicks; Sean Pierce, from the Toilet Boys; and drummer, Chris Kling. The band unofficially began when Theo and Toilet Boys co-front-man, Sean Pierce, began collaborating on songs. No strangers to the full on rock-‘n-roll lifestyle, Theo and Sean have played shows and toured around the world with bands like Marilyn Manson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rancid, NOFX, The Donnas, Blondie and No Doubt (to name a few).

When Theo and Sean were ready to officially start a band, they found Chris Kling, a drummer talented and tall enough to fit the bill. Skyscrapers stand over 6'5". Theo & The Skyscrapers instantly became a confident trio with electronic bass played by Sean Pierce.

In March 2006, Theo & the Skyscrapers’ debut album was released. Their new wave metal pop songs created an infectious beat that brought new enthusiasts to live shows and stirred an overwhelming outpouring of support in the online community. Fiercely loyal fans and fresh faces deeply connected to the band’s thunderous doom and dance sound.

The band starts an East Coast tour in Phildelphia on July 7th and the tour finishes up with a show at the Knitting Factory (in New York) on August 11th.
