Shiny Toy Guns Background
Billed as creators of synth pop, indie rock,
new wave and more, Shiny Toy Guns was established at the dawn of the 2000s by Gregori Chad Petree (guitarist/vocalist) and
Jeremy Dawson (bassist/keyboardist). The additions of Carah Faye Charnow (vocalist) and Mikey Martin (drummer) rounded out
the lineup. Shiny Toy Guns started out by growing a local fan base in California. They emerged onto the music scene with their
first effort, We Are Pilots (2005). Shiny Toy Guns built their brand from the ground up by embarking on extensive tours and
putting themselves out on the Internet. They inked a deal with Universal Records in 2006. In 2008, Shiny Toy Guns' sophomore
album, Season of Poison, arrived. The album yielded "Ricochet!," which scored the No. 17 slot on the Alternative Songs Chart.
The track was followed by the release of "Ghost Town," which settled in at No. 26 on the Alternative Songs Chart. They released
their debut animated video to accompany "Ghost Town" in the spring of 2009. In early 2010, "Rocketship 2010" arrived on Myspace.
The album, III, came next with its debut track "The Sun." The album made its official debut in the fall of 2012 on iTunes.
And, the album pieced the original lineup back together, with the return of Charnow. Today, Shiny Toy Guns continues to tour,
taking their signature electronic sound to audiences all over the planet.
