Semi Precious Weapons
 

avatar for Semi Precious Weapons

Forming in New York City, Semi Precious Weapons quickly developed a cult-like following with their songs, live performances, and visual style. SPW played sold out shows in the city, promoted warehouse parties, and became mainstays at Brooklyn events and New York Fashion Week alike.
SPW were voted 'Best Band in NYC' in the Village Voice reader's poll. Eventually the buzz the band created touring the country with the likes of Ladyhawke, Ida Maria and The Sounds garnered the attention of Interscope Records, who signed the band and released their first major label album in 2010. Lady Gaga then went on to invite her favorite band to join The Monster Ball World Tour as her opening act for a worldwide 18 month run. SPW's profile grew in this period, leading to featured performances at Lollapalooza, The Isle of Wight festival, headlining the Colours of Ostrava festival, and opening for Ke$ha. The band had performed to nearly 2 million people, and their impact became obvious in the form of a truly die-hard fanbase across the world.
After 3 years on the road, the band found themselves in Los Angeles collaborating on new music with legendary producer Tricky Stewart. SPW soon began writing and producing for other artists as well. In 2012, their innovation and determination captivated Tricky, who made the band one of his first signing to his own company, RedZone. Now 2013, Semi Precious Weapons is set to release new music, led by their first single, Aviation High.http://semipreciousweapons.com
