Reuniting for round two with former Creed bassist/producer Brett Hestla (Dark New Day, Framing Hanley, Tantric), Razorblades and Hand Grenades is the follow-up to the group’s 2009 release Stick In the Eye which featured the hit single “Ready or Not”.

Star City Meltdown is comprised of singer Brad Dills, guitarist/vocalist Lukas Patterson, bassist Cody Cupp, drummer Dean Andrews Jr. and guitarist Chris Stewart, whom as one of the original members in Black Veil Brides, co-wrote the smash hit “Knives and Pens” which has garnered over 40 million views on You Tube.

Having built a rabid fan base over the past three years while touring with Art of Dying, Saving Abel, Crossfade, Saliva and Korn, Star City Meltdown are locked and loaded to unleash more explosive shows for the remainder of 2012 and well into next year.
