Quick facts about 12 stones
12 Stones is a post-grunge band that formed in 2000 in Mandeville, Louisiana, a suburb north of New Orleans. The first line-up consisted of Paul McCoy (vocals), Kevin Dorr (bass), Eric Weaver (guitar), Stephen Poff (guitar/vocals) who left to finish One Like Son’s Goodbye and Patrick Quave
(drums) who was later replaced by Aaron Gainer. After performing no more than 12 live shows, the band recorded a demo and went to New York City where they performed at an industry showcase, where the band encountered some minor difficulties "¦ ,:”Here we are, our first few hours in New York City,” McCoy recalls, “and Kevin is puking in the bathroom and I’m chasing some guy who stole my wallet just a few hours before we play the showcase. It was crazy.”After that, the band was signed up by Wind-Up Records. The situation improved once 12 Stones signed with Wind-up and began recording with producer Jay Baumgardner (Papa Roach, Alien Ant Farm), who helped pump up Eric Weaver's searing guitar solos in the belief that a new guitar hero might be born. Combined with the propulsive rhythm section of Dorr and drummer Aaron Gainer and McCoy's distinctive lyrics, the 12 Stones sound conveys real emotion with a visceral punch. The band’s eponymous debut album was released in 2002, produced by Jay Baumgardner. They gained more fame when vocalist McCoy performed in Evanescence’s song “Bring Me to Life” opposite Amy Lee. The song was included in both Evanescence’s album, Fallen and in the Daredevil film soundtrack. McCoy quotes:”Our songs are about some of the really tough times I went through growing up as a kid,” McCoy says. Learn more about 12 Stones
