Orlando-based electronic rock group STRIA was formed during the latter part of 2007 when Daniel Chapman (lead vocals) and Justin Janetzko (bass, programming, vocals) met on an online classifieds page for musicians. Common goals and a love of music propelled them to start writing together and playing shows across central Florida. In 2009, STRIA released Chimera, an eleven song LP written with former drummer Michael Cook. The album began to work its way into the heads and homes of hard rock fans everywhere and served as a gateway into the most popular venues in central Florida. During the fall of 2009, STRIA acquired drummer Douglas Apolinario and began regional touring as well as building a bigger hometown fan base. They spent the next year promoting Chimera, gaining industry experience on and off the stage, and creating an increasingly intense live performance. With the addition of guitarist Dan Sneigoski in the summer of 2010, STRIA began to explore new techniques and evolved their sound, mixing electronic/techno elements with hard rock riffs and vocals. The integration of technology with their brand of aggressive rock became the face of a new STRIA, departing from the nu-metal, rap-core sounds of Chimera in pursuit of mainstream and radio appeal. In 2010, STRIA was contacted by award winning SKILLET guitarist and producer Ben Kasica of Skies Fall Media. STRIA signed a major production deal with Kasica and Skies Fall Media in January 2011 and the pair began writing a five-track industry EP for major label consideration. In addition, the EP features co-writing from songwriters with Columbia Records, Atlantic Records, Warner Bros. Records and Tooth & Nail Records . The EP was recorded in January at Skies Fall Media’s studios and is currently in the final stage of mixing and mastering. A 2012 release date is anticipated.
