October 2, 2020 - Nashville, TN – Alaskan-raised and Nashville-based rock outfit Static Cycle have unveiled a brand new single today. “Bread and Circus” is anthemic and showcases the band’s pop influences through their modern rock twist while sharing a very important message.
"A Roman poet coined the phrase ‘bread and circuses’ to represent political powers using food and games to divert the people’s attention,” shares Navarre on the timely track. “Our version is an introspective look at how we give those around us a facade of reality to prevent them from truly knowing us.”
“Bread & Circus” is the band’s first track that takes a sonic departure from hard rock. “We wanted the record to be more eclectic than a standard hard rock album so we worked with a variety of producers that have crafted songs across genres,” Navarre continues. To make this shift, Static Cycle enlisted the help of producer John Fields (Jonas Brothers, Switchfoot, Pink, Har Mar Superstar, Miley Cyrus, Drake Bell, Andrew W.K., Busted and Demi Lovato). Check out their official lyric video below.
When Static Cycle lead vocalist Jared Navarre hit the scene at age 19, MTV called him ‘the greatest young front man in rock.” The epic showman has established a reputation for being high-flying onstage and explosive on the mic. His gripping and powerful voice helped Static Cycle rise to national fame with the release of their second album, Part 1: Hydrate. Produced by GRAMMY-winning producer Josh “Tone” Weaver, the official music video for the LP’s hit single “Inside This World of Mine” was met with widespread acclaim from E!, Entertainment Tonight, NY Daily News, HuffPost and more. The band spent several years touring across the country with artists like Daughtry, Ludacris, Drowning Pool, Seether, Puddle of Mudd, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and Alien Ant Farm to name a few.
In 2013, Navarre moved to Nashville where he began recording the next evolution of Static Cycle music with multi-instrumentalist Andy Sheridan and renowned drummer Lester Estelle Jr.
Static Cycle is Jared Navarre (lead vocals), Andy Sheridan (multi-instrumental), and Lester Estelle Jr. (drums).
