Biography

Flickerstick was an alternative rock band from Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas. The mischievous masterminds of this five-piece rock explosion have yet to experience a dull moment in their fledging music dynasty. From a young Dallas band to VH1 TV stardom with a recording deal and national radio singles, their intense touring, raucous records and constant promotion still havent cooled their heels as the band on the run gracefully pairs sonic excitement and DIY-ethics over cigarettes and spilled beer.

Following the “Bands on the Run” VH1 series with a video for the song Smile and a pairing with Sony/Epic, Welcoming Home the Astronauts, the bands debut independent album, was re-released on Sony/Epic featuring two additional tracks in November of 2001. But, in a time when labels merge like rabbits mate, Flickerstick left Epic. They didn’t want their talent, like most artists, to get lost in the crossfire of a label sale or purchase. Taking a much needed although brief hiatus from their rampant touring schedule back in 2003-2004 Flickerstick stowed away in their native Dallas, TX, to write a darker, more rock conscious twelve song display, the LP Tarantula. But, before finishing Tarantula the boys decided to release a 6 song EP/DVD entitled To Madagascar and Back as a teaser of what was to come from the LP. The EP/DVD includes a 60 minute DVD capturing the candid reckless antics the band is famed for, the personal and witty banter revisits the first glimpses many listeners had of the gritty and hilarious moments the band encountered as they successfully starred in and won VH1s Emmy-nominated series Bands on the Run.

    Beautiful is definitely a great song. Flickerstick is pretty much the opposite of everything else I listen to, but I dig them muchly.
