Biography

Count the Stars was a four piece rock band by ways of Albany, New York. Chris Kasarjian (guitar/vocals), Dave Shapiro (drums), Adam Manning (guitar), and Clarke Foley (bass) brought the rock and energy back onto the scene with their catchy songs and irresistable on-stage charisma. As a young band they believed in the somewhat dying do-it-yourself ethic, recruiting themselves to malls and local shows to promote themselves. They also recorded, as an unsigned band, the disc “Another Useless Night” and booked their own successful cross country tours. While their respectable DIY work was phenomenal, their solid tunes and indescribable live shows had labels both big and small competing to sign them, and they finally hopped on to the Chicago based Victory Records family.

From there, they released their first CD as a signed band titled “Never Be Taken Alive.” The twelve, almost annoyingly catchy songs, became constantly played by both new and old fans alike. However, those who have ever seen them live know that you have not truly experienced Count the Stars until you have seen them in concert. As a result, they worked hard traveling non stop for months across the country on the Vans Warped Tour and with bands such as Taking Back Sunday, The Early November, Fall Out Boy, and more.

    These guys were great, they always gave me a little bit of hope that someday Albany would be cool. It still isn't, but I live in NYC now ;)

    I'm so sad they aren't a band anymore. They helped me through my high school angst. Oh, summer of '03.

    It's sad that they aren't playing anymore. At least two of them are still playing in Action Action. I'll always love Never Be Taken Alive. Now it's over

    Taking It All Back sounds almost exactly like The Getaway by Punchline. I'm pretty sure this one was put out first, I'm just saying.
