March 4, 2014 –  2014 is already proving to be a busy year for OPEN AIR STEREO.  Not only have they just released the second single, “Damned,” from their PRIMATES debut album, which was added to SiriusXM’s “The Pulse” channel right away, but they’re getting ready for a batch of shows in Austin, TX during SXSW and they’ll be launching a co-headlining tour with miggs and Man On Earth in March.
While a lyric video for “Damned” can currently be seen on the band’s YouTube page, they recently completed an official music video for the song with Devin DeHaven (Slash, R. Kelly, Rita Ora) at the director’s helm, which will be released soon.
Meanwhile, the Southern California band–Chase Johnson (lead vocals), Nick Gross (drums), Scott Pounds (guitars), Evan Smith (bass)–is getting ready to launch a co-headlining tour with miggs and Man On Earth starting March 25 in Jacksonville, FL at Jack Rabbits and concluding May 4 in Scottsdale, AZ at the Rogue Bar.  Before the trek kicks off, OPEN AIR STEREO will perform a handful of shows in Austin, TX during SXSW.
PRIMATES has been racking up rave reviews since its release last May. described it as “…melodic rock that’s a bit edgy and free, with lots of guitar bite.” called it “…an energetic and hook-filled hard rock album…” hailed:  “Open Air Stereo encapsulates Southern California pop and rock sound. Their debut album features ten tracks that give off that beachy, summery spirit that is enjoyable, refreshing and triggers the senses to aurally experience the laid-back, chill vibes of surf, sand and sun.”
