Biography

STAND DOWN Biography Ken Goode – Vocals Justin Lacey – Guitar Cody Jackson – Guitar Chris Payne – Bass Sean Jmaeff – Drums www.myspace.com/standdownmilitia Music is our life and our escape from the troubles in this world today. We deliver hard, passionate truth the best way we know how, through music. STAND DOWN emerges from the studio once again with their third full length album WORLDS AWAY, giving STAND DOWN a hole new epic energy of ear candy and face melting sound to the bands music style of versatile writing, that releases a diverse blend of thought and depth captured in the band’s music, that is both compelling and convincing in delivery. The Vancouver-based band spent the last 6ix years intoxicating and immortalizing the Canadian music scene in a sea of head-banging, sweat-dripping shows to promote the Band, playing every venue in every possible town and city, opening for such bands as TWO LIVE CREW, DEFAULT, ILLSCARLETT, MISFITS, MATHEW GOOD, OFFSPRING, PAPA ROACH, CHEVELLE, and EAGLES OF DEATH METAL and future upcoming shows for their 2011 tour with A PERFICT CIRCLE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, SUBLIME WITH ROME, THREE DAYS GRACE AND MY DARKEST DAYS, has proven that Stand Down’s hype is on the rise and continues to grow for the bands new album WORLDS AWAY. Placing top 10 in Vancouver’s Seeds 2008 Competition, top 20 in 2009, and top 20 in 2010 STAND DOWN continues to prove to be one of Vancouver’s and Canada’s best kept indie band secrets. STAND DOWN originated from Cranbrook and Fernie BC in 2003 and migrated to Vancouver soon after. They began by pushing their name and playing smaller shows then slowly built a foundation among the Vancouver and Canadian scene with increasingly strong feed back from local promoters and patrons and producers. With the release of their new album WOLRD AWAY, STAND DOWN has created a larger-than-life sound that emulates their audio aggression. With Chris Payne on the rhythm axe, laying the bottom and Sean Jmaeff’s hard-hitting drums syncopating the beats behind every potent song, STAND DOWN’S backbone is intact giving Justin Lacey and Cody Jackson free range to set the mood with deviant guitar riffs as front man and lead commander, Ken Goode, releases the perfect enigma of a somber rocker, immersing the audience in his vocal authenticity and explosive stage presence. STAND DOWN proves to be a staple in the Vancouver music scene. Giving a paradoxal meaning to their moniker, they mean every note they play, provoking more demand from their hard-rock assembly. As a compiled unit on the forefront of a fresh page, STAND DOWN is prepared to do the work required to deliver, ultimately giving the fans a well-deserved reward for supporting one of Vancouver strongest exports.
