Between The Warning And The War. ~ vocalist, LaurenWe all come to a point in our lives where we see the signs, and are given a choice of where we want to go. We can make a choice to make things better or to fuck things up. That's the moment
SiX was formed in 2001, in Orange County, CA. Their first release was an EP called "When The Beauty's Gone" (1605 Records). SiX played all over America and Canada throughout 2001-2004; with the likes of Clutch, Gwar, Dope, Hed Pe, Saliva, Coal Chamber, and countless other local and regional bands.
In 2004, the band returned to their rehearsal/recording studio, "The Asylum", to cook up new music for their full length debut. It became the dark, heavy groove, metal onslaught, titled, "The Price Of Faith", which hit stores in February, 2005 (1605 Records). Once again they toured their asses off all over America, and even dippin' down into Mexico; rockin' with everyone from Dry Kill Logic, Slipknot, Fear Factory, Chimira, Nevermore, Arch Enemy & a ton of other great bands.
They ended almost 2 years of touring and entered the rehearsal studio again, to start writing a new album. 27 songs were written, and many of the new songs were debuted live in front of sold out shows with Clutch, legendary punk gods the Germs, & Disturbed. Yet the album was far from finished.
SiX first began to record the album up in a fancy Hollywood studio, but then eventually scrapped the entire project to start completely over in a buddy's small dungeon like studio. They worked sometimes up to 15 hours a day, sleeping in the studio to get it done. The vibe was perfect. Although there were many struggles from the beginning, their drive was relentless.
Finally, with the additions of Mike Clark (Suicidal Tendencies) on Forgiveness, and Tony Campos (Static X) on Warning & The Day I Died
all of their inspiration and determination resulted in "Between The Warning And The War" (1605 Records), released on April 20, 2007. The same day of the release, SiX rocked another sold out Jager show with Stone Sour, Shadows Fall, & Lacuna Coil. It was an amazing way to celebrate the release!
The new album is a blistering attack on mainstream music. It's somewhere between old school power, and the future of aggression. "We decided to really let our roots show on this one. We all grew up on metal, punk, and classic rock. So this time around, we're letting it all come out", vocalist Lauren says proudly. "We don't care about trends like most bands seem to these days. We just do what we do, and this one really captures the energy and intensity we've built as a touring band. It's destroys!"
SiX has been doing major regional shows, in support of Between The Warning And The War. The band toured as part of the "Warfest" package with Total Chaos+ Hemlock, was featured at the first annual " O.C Punk Rock Picnic w/ Guttermouth + The Briggs and currently just completed dates on the 2008 Jagermeister Music Tour w/ Hatebreed, Type O Negative and 3 Inches of Blood.
The track "Forgiveness" was featured on the May 2008 Metal Edge magazine CD compilation alongside In Flames + Children of Bodom. SiX music has been heard on MTV's Road Rules Challenge and in July 2008, SiX joined the Rockstar Mayhem tour in San Bernardino CA with Slipknot,Disturbed,Machine Head, 36 CrazyFists, Mastodon, Dragonforce and more.
Another full U.S. tour is currently being planned.
The future looks bright in the land of SiX where D.I Y. is king!
We've gotta gives huge props to Jagermeister, our 1605 Family and the fans for all the love and support over the years. That support has fueled our determination to get this music heard and we couldn't of pulled off all this crazy stuff without you!
Thank you and we'll see you all on the road.
