Smile Empty Soul


Here comes a Southern California alternative rock trio in support of a new record headlining a traveling rock show at Catch. Sean Danielsen (guitar, vocals), Ryan Martin (bass) and Jake Kilmer (drums) hit the road four weeks ago to cross America, starting out in Georgia, traveling through the Deep South, over to Texas, up through Tennessee to the Midwest. After shows in mid-November in our neck of the woods, including five in Illinois, the boys head out west through Iowa and Kansas to Colorado, Wyoming and Montana to make a few dates in the Northwest and finally end up back in Hollywood, Calif. by Dec. 13. Man that’s a haul, but these fellas have been at it since their Atlantic Records debut in 2003 was certified “gold” on the strength of the Top Ten hit “Bottom of the Bottle.” The latest recording, Chemicals, came out on the band’s own imprint, Two Disciples, and their new music video, “False Alarm,” is receiving regular airings over the popular rock oriented online site, Loudwire.
