Secret to Everybody
'Trying to put 'Army of Robots' in a musical category that has any relevance to the modern day music listener is pretty much impossible but on listening you can hear influences ranging from just about every musical genre out there. 'Army of Robots' inspiration lies more heavily on '80's New Wave than straight rock and roll. They are often described as being in a genre of their own. 'Army of Robots' began as a solo project of Daggrr's. In 1999 Daggrr recorded as 'AOR' on a four track, using the production help of various friends. 'Army of Robots', as it's known today, came to be with the joining of Seth Ludeman and Bryon Anderson. Their collaborative writing and performance has given the music a distinct sound which is easily recognized as 'AOR'. Their prolific writing and recording has yielded a vast catalog of tracks. Their first release 'The Fashionably Bad EP' was a short run, self released CD in 2000, their second EP 'This Distortion' was released in 2003 with Dead Vinyl Records. (Both recordings have completely sold out and there are no plans to re-release either. Dead Vinyl records closed their doors in the fall of 2003.) The band toured throughout the southwest and northwest US during the spring and summer of 2003 supporting 'This Distortion'. They acquired new artist management in the late spring 2003. In June 2003, during their tour through the NW, 'AOR' spent time recording demos with Jack Endino, legendary Seattle producer (Hot, hot heat, Nirvana). These tracks would become the base of their upcoming album, 'Secret to Everybody'. In late 2003, They inked publishing and licensing agreements (on their upcoming album) with Source Q Boutique and Gimbel Music Group, Inc. In Los Angeles. By summer, 2004 'AOR' had gained two new members: Micah Killough on bass and backing vocals and Scott Gunshore behind the drums. The new line-up has been received extremely well by fans who have attended the bands recent string of 'secret shows' at legendary Hollywood Alley. The much anticipated 11 track album 'Secret to Everybody' is scheduled to hit the streets in February of 2005. The release coincides with the re-emergence of 'AOR' to the stage both locally and nationally.'
