Ex-I See Stars Frontman To Return To Stage

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

It has been a long time since the news broke that I See Stars asked former co-frontman, Zach Johnson, to step down from the band. Johnson was the screamer of the self-coined Electronic Hardcore Music (EHM) band. He was on every release from the debut ‘3D’ until the 2013 album ‘New Demons’, with last year’s offering ‘Treehouse’ being the first proper release without him on screamed vocals, meaning Devin Oliver is pulling double duty.

It is clear though that he has kept a following, with constant interactions on Twitter, fans continue to engage him years after the departure. Many of those fans would now love to know that Johnson is returning to the stage this summer with his new band, Outer Glow. Outer Glow formed last year releasing two singles, one featuring Ryan Kirby of Fit For A King. Their debut, ‘Lunar Effect’, is also due out this year as well, a project that has been in the making for a long time. The band is based in North Carolina, far from Johnson’s origin state of Michigan, and will hit the stage Friday, June 30th in Greensboro, NC at the Blind Tiger.

About returning to the stage, we spoke with Zach Johnson about coming back after all these years:

“There has been a piece of my heart missing ever since I left the stage. I am beyond excited to be able to perform again especially with a group of such awesome guys.

Tickets for this show have been going fast and could possibly sellout, which would be HUGE that an unsigned band with no backing would do that for their first show. They have spent the last year building their brand and promoting online, which has paid off as fans seem to be coming hours and states away for this show. Tickets for the show can be found HERE.

The rest of the lineup for Outer Glow is:

Chris Watts
Drew Knoeller
Francisco Vergara
Kandon Monk
John Hicks

The full lineup for the show is:

Fear The United
End The Empire
