Sounds Of Arson
is a hard rock trio with Sergio Puente as vocalist and guitarist, drummer Ernie Everett, and bassist
Alex Lozano. With their first album — "From the ashes, a fire will rise" — set to debut fall of 2013 the band is gearing up to perform throughout
Texas and the surrounding areas.
“The concept of our album is rebirth. How life gives and takes from us every day and gives us the chance to reinvent ourselves and grow based on
those experiences," said Puente.
Sounds Of Arson’s debut album will include tracks such as Disconnected, Finally Awake, and Open Arms that touch on very real themes such as
replacing human interaction with social media, overcoming addiction, and coping with loss of a loved one. The trio’s powerful lyrics, melodic
vocals, and heavy, driving sound is sure to captivate hard rock fans and casual fans of mainstream rock alike.
Originally in 2003, the guys formed the group Alternate Silence. The members disbanded and pursued other musical projects as well as faced personal
obstacles, only to regroup in 2011 with a new outlook and common passion in their music.
The trio jokingly explained, “So we were together...split up...then got back together. Now that we're together again we feel like we
should’ve never been apart. We're definitely catching up for lost time.”
In 2012, the band members simultaneously became fathers for the first time, which helped to cement their bond, as well as became a guiding force in
Puente explained, "A lot of songs are inspired by the give and take of life. My 21-year-old brother passed away and my first son was born within a
span of 5 months. A tragedy and a miracle put so many emotions and questions in my mind that are cemented in the themes of our music.”
Everett was inspired by his family of musicians at a very early age. "Music is my passion. It's something I grew up with and something I will do
for the rest of my life. Both my father and uncle are musicians as well, so they are the reason I started playing music. I remember being four years
old and peeking into the garage to listen to them jam" he commented.
Although they are a three piece band, Sounds Of Arson doesn't shy away from delivering big rock anthems that inspire crowds to shout along. "I
would like our sound to reach the masses. In a time when bands and people seem to be coming out of an assembly line, we want to be different and true
to ourselves. We might just be a three piece, but we like playing with fire" said Lozano.
With fatherhood the purpose of the band has become even more important. They wish to pursue their goals no matter how big or small — to do what they
love and most importantly set a good example for their children. It wouldn't hurt to become a staple in hard rock music along the way!
