FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: New York, July 5, 2008--NYC rock trio STARK announces their new line-up. STARK has officially replaced Josette with guitarist and engineer/co-producer, Sonic Joe Hogan. Also, Sweet Rob Endemann has left the band to raise a family in Florida, so Eric Rock ‘n Robel, formerly with Heroin Sheiks and Nova Express, has joined the group. STARK’s sophomore album Put It To Your Head, released January 26th is continuing to receive great press and radio, with recent reviews in Big Takeover and Devolution plus on the Soundcheck Magazine and Street Voice UK websites. STARK’s song “Disturbed” is featured on Bubblegum Slutzine’s Summer CD Sampler and “OH NO!” has just been selected for a Women in Rock compilation CD and added into rotation on Indie 104 radio. “18 Again” will be re-released on the upcoming Wicked Cool Records compilation CD Goldie’s Garage, Volume 1 thanks to Genya Ravan and her two Sirius Radio shows. STARK’s debut CD The Curse is still getting attention with play on Joey Stuckey’s Audio Style and A Quiet Time podcast. Lani Ford participated in Make Music New York again this year with a solo acoustic performance at La Guardia Corner Gardens and performed in the 3rd Annual Dynamic Music Fest July 6th in Long Island. Lani Ford has interviews featured on Indiegrrl.com and Bassgirls.com and STARK has just received an artist endorsement from Daisy Rock. While on tour in the UK, STARK met a band broken down on the motorway and instantly befriended Lilith’s Army who will join STARK for 5 dates at the end of September, including Fontana’s and Otto’s Shrunken Head in NYC, Champs in Trenton, NJ and more. STARK has enough material for at least 2 future records to be produced sooner than later with a lot of funny, disturbing, moving, and inspiring material out there and demos are already being recorded.
