Battlestar visits The Rock, Plays Acoustic Set

battlestar.jpgCleveland-based rock band Battlestar paid a visit to WJCU on December 5 to play an acoustic set live in the studio. Gene, host of The Rock (Saturday mornings, midnight – 2 a.m.) spoke with the band about all things Battlestar. Check the links to listen to Battlestar’s acoustic versions of “Devastated” and “Chained”, and interview excerpts! Formed in 2010, Battlestar was the brainchild of Eric Hess (vocals) and Jason French (guitars, drums), who also have played together in AUDIBLETHREAD. Hess and French collaborated on Battlestar’s first recording, the five-song EP BSODDV 1.0, released for free on the internet on April 1. The band lineup currently includes Hess, William Depawl (guitars/synth), Dave Reigelman (guitar), Jason Carlson (bass), and Donovan Grimes (drums). Listen to the interview as Hess recalls the band’s beginnings with French, and talks about some of the band’s songs. Battlestar can be found on the web at www.facebook.com/battlestaruniverse, and you can download their album BSODDV 1.0 from the web at battlestar.bandcamp.com.
