Stonebreed Sign With Rock Avenue Records And Share The Stage With Sebastian Bach And Ted Nugent



In a city the size of Los Angeles with so many bands trying to make a name for themselves, it is a rare and exciting time when one of Los Angeles’ own bands breaks out from the trenches of the “underground”. Exciting times are ahead for LA’s own Stonebreed,  who have recently signed with Rock Avenue Records USA.

The Record Deal Signing took place in classic LA Style on April 9th, with all members of Stonebreed in attendance at the legendary Rainbow Bar & Grill on Sunset Strip to sign a two-year contract with Mary Ann Hartman and Louis Espinoza of Rock Avenue Records USA.

Stonebreed are definitely one of the hardest working bands we have ever seen and they continue to make a name for themselves playing throughout the United States  everywhere from strip clubs and every club on the Sunset Strip to Festivals and sharing the stage with over 50 International Touring acts.


Stonebreed are: Carlos Cruz, vocals; Brandon Paul, Guitars; Johnny Zell, Bass and Orion Rainz on drums. Regarding their new record contract Cruz stated; “We’re really excited to be working with Rock Avenue Records USA. It feels good to have a whole team behind us, all working towards the same goals in the same direction. We are looking forward to the future!”.













LA Metal Media was fortunate to catch Stonebreed as they took the stage as direct support to the LA appearance of RATT with only one original member, drummer Bobby Blotzer.

Although this was the return of RATT it was hometown heroes, Stonebreed who took the show this evening, eclipsing the night.









Stonebreed Ignites The Stage


Guitarist Paul opened their set with a stellar version of Eddie Van Halen’s guitar masterpiece; Eruption. Paul strutted the stage with impeccable chops, effortlessly shedding up and down the neck of his guitar. The band then launched into Tonight a yet unreleased uptempo kick-ass song with just enough of a southern rock flavor to make any whiskey drinker raise their glass and say; Hell Yeah!. This was the perfect opener to get their party started.

Stonebreed continued their set with the fan favorite Judgement Day a song off their self titled debut CD. The band was in great form this evening with Cruz commanding the stage, Paul taunting the fans with his guitar and the explosive rhythm section of well known LA bassist Johnny Zell  and relentless skin smashing by Orion Rainz.


Next they served up Last Dollar, Pain and Take Me before crushing the night with Whiskey Well, complete with Cruz toasting the audience with shots of Whiskey.


The Stonebreed set was:

Judgement Day
Last Dollar
Take Me
Whiskey Well
