Semi Precious Weapons: Aviation

Justin, Dan, Stevy, and Cole.  Four artists who have blended to make the perfect rock and roll fusion that is, Semi Precious Weapons.  The four started off as music school friends with their hearts set on becoming a respected, well-known artists that people can relate to.  Five years into this friendship, the four decided that they would move to NYC and pursue their dream together.

The name Semi Precious Weapons is catchy to say the least, but lead singer, Justin admits that his original intent was to name the band Semi Precious.  However, he later decided to add the word ‘weapons’ to give it a more rock and roll edge as per his father’s suggestion. 

Recently, the band released their album entitled “Aviation”, a title that came from the album’s natural theme of celestial inspiration.  “The word Aviation has an element of vintage glamour, and sums up that feeling of looking up and moving forward,” explains Justin.  The first single off of the album, “Aviation High”, marked the start of what promises to be an inspirational and empowering set of songs. 

Of all the songs on the album though, Justin names his favorite as “Healed” with no reason in particular simply saying, “I love the lyrics, I love singing it, and the sonic world my band members created around the vocals feels so special.” 

Along with the release of this album, the band is excited to be able to perform at different radio festivals all across the United States, and hope to soon expand their fan interaction to countries outside of the U.S. as well.
