About the Artistes
Hurricane Bells is the new project from Steve Schiltz, singer and guitarist of Longwave. After touring the better part of last year around Longwave’s fourth album Secrets Are Sinister ,Schiltz set up shop to create a new project with little else than his MacBook and an Mbox. He wrote, played, recorded and mixed every note himself, arranging what would become Tonight Is The Ghost. Some songs were fully crafted within the past 18 months, while others are newly architected from pieces written throughout his years as a songwriter. The song entitled “Monsters”, went on to become the soundtrack for the major motion picture, “New Moon”. Vagrant Records released Tonight Is The Ghost digitally on November 10, 2009. A b-side, Monsters, appears on the soundtrack of the second film of the Twilight franchise, New Moon.

Them Clones were created sometime in 2000. “It came about as we were looking to forge an identity as a left-of-the-middle sort of band. The name reflects the general attitude of the band which was to look at their stage personalities as clones of their selves”. Inspired by the dramatic world of rock n’ roll and of course themselves, their tryst with songwriting has directed them across the course of the thoughtful to confessional, from the assertive to the provocative; but has been, consistently, accompanied by a tight groove or a silken melody. Apart from numerous concerts and gigs across, they were the chosen ones at Channel [V] LaunchPad in 2005 and also got voted as the ‘Best Band’ at JD Rock Awards twice in row in 2006 and 2007 along with the emphatic win as 2nd runners up at the Channel [V] AMP Big Break All Asia. Followed with their super successful single release 'My Life' in May 2009, their debut album ‘Love.Hate.Heroes' was released in October 2009, under Counter Culture / EMI records which was marked with a short nationwide tour.
Them Clones has also been nominated for this year's Jack Daniels Rock Awards is 'Best Band' category, along with 'My Life' and 'Love.Hate.Heroes' getting nominated for 'Best Song' and 'Best Album' slot. To vote, log onto http://www.jdrockawards.com
