Since 2003, Fashion Bomb has made a statement. In early 2004, they won a competition sponsored by a major Chicago radio station 94.7 The Zone, which landed them a development deal with Hollywood Records. The band recorded four songs with well known producer Tadpole (Disturbed, Soil, Earshot, Drowning Pool). Later that year, the band opened for Marilyn Manson in Chicago during the Against All Gods Tour. Because of their distinctly “undead” appearance, some are quick to label them “goth”. But those who really get Fashion Bomb understand that the band and its classically trained singer are not so easily categorized. Drawing comparisons to Tool, Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle and Rob Zombie, Fashion Bomb continues the evolution of metal.In 2006, Fashion Bomb self released their debut full length album, “Devils to Some, Angels to Others” which included fan favorites “Low” and “Christ Puncher”. Never content to rest on their laurels, Fashion Bomb re-tooled and forged ahead with bringing their music to the masses. To this end, Fashion Bomb signed with Full Effect Records in 2008 (Faster Pussycat/Pigface/Newlydeads). The Detroit/Los Angeles based label re-released “Devils to Some, Angels to Others” with a bonus remix by Asrock of Final Cut.
Fashion Bomb enjoys continued airplay on Sirius radio, and such notable major radio stations as Q101 in Chicago and WSOU in New Jersey. They have also appeared in such internationally know magazines as Revolver and Metal Hammer. Currently, Fashion Bomb has released their sophomore record, “Visions of the Lifted Veil”. The new album is produced by Raymond Herrera (Fear Factory/ Arkaea) and Jeremy Blair (Guns-n-Roses, Cypress Hill), and recorded at Temple Studios in Los Angeles, CA.
