Ground Above Zero
"Songwriting siblings Joshua and Heather Haas grew up in a house of music. Their father Robin being a local Denver musician in the 1960's. Drummer Kelly Prestridge has been a prominent feature in several Denver bands for the last 18 years, playing genre's ranging from Metal to funk to nerd-lounge-rock. Guitarist Andrew Nugent understood the groove heavy melodic writing style of the Haas duo and added his flair, making the music move. Tim Gallagher joined as they were getting ready to record their first album, bringing galloping guitar riffs to heavy up the unique band."
With their in-your-face hard rock guitars and driving drum rhythms, Dimmer Switch from Denver, Colorado has set out to put a new spin on a familiar style of alternative punk rock. Everett, Lee, Chris and Tomas have worked tirelessly over the last few years to write, create, and promote their hard rock/punk rock style of tight changes, screaming solos, and melodic songwriting that attracts fans of bands like Unwritten Law, Alkaline Trio, and Thrice.
On the band's 2012 debut EP "Not the Stereo-Type", Dimmer Switch weaves tales of breakups, revenge, and self preservation through a burst of raw guitars and pulsing drum beats. The electricity and energy of the EP's recordings are enhanced in their high octane live performances which seek to connect Dimmer Switch with their growing fan base, all the while staying true to their humble roots planted in their Mile High City home.
