BEWARE! the Other Head of Science are a band that knows how to share. The long time friends that comprise this Albany, NY outfit have shared living spaces, food, instruments, clothes, and stories. A similar canon holds true to their stage performance, with members swapping guitars for keyboards, trading vocal melodies, and all partaking in percussion. One would expect that when all six members play full force it would yield a chaotic din, yet it manages to coalesce into a thick and melodic wall of sound.
They performed their first show as a two-piece on Halloween of 2006, playing along to an electronic drum track. Over the last few years the band has expanded to three times the size, calling upon old friends and former band mates. BEWARE! was dubbed 'Best Electro Pop Band' by regional alternative press, Metroland, in 2009, in which they were compared to "a can of root beer, filled with Pop Rocks, poured down the pants of a hyperactive 7th grader.” They're fairly certain that's a compliment.
Their sizeable stage presence and reputation for boisterous live shows earned them a spot opening up for Moby and Matt and Kim at the 2009 Larkfest in Albany, NY (with an estimated 85,000 people in attendance). They have also shared a stage with dance rock veterans !!! (chk chk chk), the Secret Machines, and local up-and-comers Phantogram. BEWARE! spent the months of September and October writing an original score to the 1925 film "The Lost World," which they performed live as part of the Albany Public Library's silent film series.
They recently finished their first full length album, titled "Big American Godzilla Party," and are booking a tour for this spring. BEWARE! continues to be an active part of the Albany based B3nson Collective, a group of like minded musicians who also enjoy sharing.
BEWARE! plunges into the hearts of dance-a-holics around the world, filling venues with the sound of square waves, 4/4 bass beats, shouts of exuberance, and leaves little more than a trail of confetti in their wake.
