Former DEFIANCE guitarist Shawn Bozarth unveiled his new band ONE LESS ENEMY on April 19 at the Fat Cat club in Modesto, California. Sharing the bill was WARBRINGER and headliner FORBIDDEN. ONE LESS ENEMY tore through its ferocious five-song set with a mix of technical and melodic thrash . The urgency of the material was not lost on the crowd, who exhibited an enthusiastic response to the band.
"It was an honor to open for such luminaries as FORBIDDEN," said Shawn. "They were a huge influence to me when I was younger. Now that DEFIANCE is over, I'm focusing 100 percent on ONE LESS ENEMY and we are armed and ready! We're gearing up to hit the studio and shop our project to various interested labels."
After undergoing several lineup changes, ONE LESS ENEMY solidified its assembly, consisting of Shawn Bozarth (guitar), Gary Jones (vocals), Kris Olson (bass), Harley Maxwell (guitars) and Chuck Beale (drums).
Look for ONE LESS ENEMY to be doing a string of live Bay Area shows throughout the summer and fall of 2012 while they finish their debut offering.
