DECEMBER 6, 2010 - Antelope Valley California doesn't boast the the kind of grit and glamour that one finds in Tinseltown, but it is home to a band with a big thunderous metal sound that brings back a memory or two of that old metal sound before it became 'nu'. DISTORTED FATE was the brainchild of drummer BRIAN BANNER and guitarist BOB SPEARS (both former members of a band called FOREWARNED). Vocalist MIKE WEINBERG walked in on one of the jam sessions between drummer and guitarist and provided the growl that SPEARS's riffs and BANNER's drumming demanded. The bands search for a bass player proved fruitful with AARON CROSS who came from the IRON MAIDEN tribute band SEVENTH SON. In the band's pursuit of big time success, they have teamed with producer MATT GRUBER (QUEENSRYCHE, SCORPIONS) which has resulted in the band's electrifying debut album HAUNTING - a 10-song catalog of reflections on anger and betrayal that proudly and loudly proclaim to the world that DISTORTED FATE has arrived.

ABOUT THE HOST:
BRIAN LUSH holds a BA in Creative Writing from the UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO. He established ROCKWIRED on New Years of 2004 and hasn’t looked back since. He is currently the host of all of ROCKWIRED.COM's programming which includes such shows as ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES and ROCKWIRED FREE FORM RADIO. As program producer for ROCKWiRED.COM, LUSH is hands-on when it comes to interviewing and building a lasting rapport with the artists that come ROCKWiRED’s way. As a youngster, BRIAN LUSH had no idea what kind of seed was being planted by reading magazines such as HIT PARADE, HIGH TIMES, SPIN, REQUEST (remember that one?) and even ROLLING STONE. “Those were the days before the internet and being a rock journalist looked like the coolest job imaginable.” says LUSH “But reading these magazines had me imagining that one day I’d be the artist giving all of the clever answers to some poor guy with a tape recorder. Well, life has a way of surprising you. Now, I’m the poor guy with the tape recorder and asking all of the questions.”
