ATHEIST Frontman's STONES OF MADNESS To Perform Live For First Time

STONES OF MADNESS, the band formed by Scott Thompson (DRY KILL LOGIC) and ATHEIST/NEUROTICA frontman Kelly Shaefer, will make its live debut tomorrow (Sunday, July 14) at Jake's Tavern in Sarasota, Florida. The event will start at noon, with STONES OF MADNESS scheduled to perform at 6:00 p.m. sharp.

Formed in 2011, STONES OF MADNESS includes Thompson, Shaefer, former NEUROTICA members G.J.Gosman (drums) and Shawn Bowen (guitar), along with Julia Simms (bass). The project is being recorded at Timeline Studios in Ft. Myers, Florida and is being produced by Scott "Scoob" Bush (former guitarist of THE NIXONS).

STONES OF MADNESS is a slightly different venture for Scott, Kelly, Shawn and G.J. who come from more aggressive metal backgrounds. But this project shows how truly diverse their influences really are.

Kelly previously described the STONES OF MADNESS material as "big thick guitars, along with some fucking big catchy vocals.... bashers to sing along with, cranked to 11, of course."
