â€œThis is one really good new band! I recently saw them at the Rustic Frog. It's kinda like Metallica meets C.O.C in a melodic heavy rock/metal style. Great Vocals, great guitar playing, the dude on lead smokes. I think I liked every song and for me, that's rare. Nice guys too. No attitudes. Check them out at www.shatterstone.comâ€ - Eddie Metal, Louisville Music News, July 2005
Shatterstone is made up of three brothers (Reggie, Ricky, Robbie) and Bryan Warman. They began in 2003 when two high school acquaintances, Reggie and Bryan, ran into each other at a bar. They began playing in Bryanâ€™s garage and from there, began searching for other members to fill out the band. Having played with his brothers before in a band called Awake, Reggie convinced Ricky and Robbie to join with him and Bryan to fill the positions of lead guitar and bass. Ricky took the mantle of singer only after Shatterstone realized that he was better fit for the position than any they had auditioned.
To the band themselves, Shatterstone is three brothers and a high school friend doing what they love and striving to achieve their dream. To many, they are quickly becoming the premier hard rock band in the region. Emotionally charged and energetic live shows continue to grow the buzz that surrounds Shatterstone.
Over the past two years, Shatterstone has been recording their debut album, The Hard Goodbye. Pouring every ounce of blood, sweat, and determination they possess into the album, Shatterstone self-produced and recorded The Hard Goodbye in a studio they built themselves. The album is fully loaded with six hard hitting songs that are just a sample of what the band has written.
Shatterstone now has landed several endorsements by major companies including Washburn guitars and Seymour Duncan pick-ups. Talks have also begun with Rotosound strings for a possible endorsement. Watch our website for further updates.
