Brothers Dameon and Gabe Aranda have been writing and playing music together since they were kids. Music has always been a major force in their lives.
Throughout Aranda’s career they have worked with some of the industry’s finest talent including the Grammy-nominated production team of Sam Watters and Louis Biancaniello on their first self-titled national release.
2009 saw Aranda’s first charting single, “Still in the Dark,” break into the Top 30 chart for active rock radio across the country.
That same year, American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson hand-picked two Aranda songs to cover on her album, All I Ever Wanted — including the high-energy in-your-face song of rebellion, “Whyyawannabringmedown” and, “All I Ever Wanted,” which became the title track for Clarkson’s album. Also, in 2009, Aranda’s “Whyyawannabringmedown” was selected by the WWE as the theme song for the pay-per-view event, The Bash.
Clarkson’s covers reinforced to the band that their music has an audience if given the proper chance. Aranda released a deluxe edition of their 2008 self-titled debut album, which included live tracks and a radio mix of “Whyyawannabringmedown,” along with a DVD of their wall-shaking album release show, Aranda: Live From OKC.
Dameon and Gabe have shared the stage with many of the biggest names in rock performing with hit bands such as Papa Roach, Stone Temple Pilots, Shinedown, Staind, Sick Puppies, The All American Rejects, Rev Theory, Saliva, Puddle of Mudd, Theory of a Deadman, Halestorm and Black Stone Cherry. With the brothers’ airtight harmonies and passionate onstage performances, Aranda’s live show is unforgettable.
“We want to create high energy, keep rocking, keep everybody entertained. We want to involve the audience and make it fun for them,” guitarist Dameon says. “Our hope is that you’ll keep coming back for more.”
The band has recently released their second studio album, Stop the World, produced by Grammy-nominated producer, Johnny K., (Disturbed, Sevendust, Staind, Drowning Pool). Stop the World has already yielded two national radio hits on active rock radio with the singles, “Undone” and “Satisfied.”
Aranda will be joining Saving Abel on a nationwide tour this summer 2012 with special guest Redlight King. The tour will include stops in major markets throughout the U.S.
