PIST.ON Starts Their Engine
PIST.ON premiered to critical and fan acclaim in the second half of the 1990s. After several years and two albums, the band retreated into a "self-imposed exile". Years of hiatus finally came to an end in 2015 and fans are welcoming them back with excitement. You're sure to hear your favourite old songs and maybe even new material if you buy PIST.ON tickets from StubHub and catch them on tour!
Bringing Mayhem Across the Atlantic
With a cheeky name like PIST.ON, a band is likely to get their fair share of attention. But this Staten Island-based band backs up the sass with a dedication to memorable music. Their music is broadly categorised as heavy metal, but PIST.ON's songs dance around pop and goth with guitar riffs, dark humour and wit. The band has long been friends with fellow New York-based metal band Type O Negative, touring and working together. They have also toured with other high-profile acts such as Marilyn Manson, The Misfits, and Korn. After releasing two albums, PIST.ON went into hibernation for a decade and a half. Loyal fans constantly requested the band's return and in 2015, it finally happened. The band is excited to be back together and are ready to return to "pissing people off and kicking ass on stage". Another album is in the works as well, with the band taking advantage of new technology to build their sound. Come and witness the band's reignited energy by buying PIST.ON tickets for their new gigs!
Showing Who's Number One
PIST.ON has kept fans on their toes with their sombre, melodic music as well as their tumultuous career. The heavy metal band came together for the first time in the early 1990s, started by core members Henry Font and Val.lum. Font was on vocals and guitar and and Val.lum was on bass and backing vocals. The band was rounded out in 1996 by Paul Poulos and Danny "Jam" Kavadlo. The quartet released their first album, entitled "Number One", under Mayhem Records. The album was produced by Josh Silver of Type O Negative, who had also produced an earlier EP. Major label Atlantic took interest in the band after their initial popularity and re-released the band's first album to even wider success. Around this time, the line-up of the band shifted, with Burton Gans and Jeff McManus replacing Poulos and Kavadlo. The band released a second album in 1999 through their original label, but internal pressures fractured the group and led to what they called a "self-imposed exile". After 15 years, PIST.ON reformed and began to work on new material. To witness this new high point in the band's dramatic story, make sure to get PIST.ON tickets from StubHub today.
