Recently opened gigs for Blue Oyster Cult... Some backstory... Bitetti then hooked up with veteran producer/arranger Barry “Foz” Fasman to form Shelter From the Storm Records, an independent label now distributed by the Adrenaline Music Group/ADA, to put out Bluebeard’s Deluxe With Reverb, which streets May 22.
Original Bluebeard members Bitetti, Hart and Bogan will be joined by Fasman, guitarist Brian Barnum and front man Lee Gordon for live performances, beginning with two L.A.-area shows, opening for Blue Oyster Cult, March 23 at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills and March 25 at the Grove in Anaheim.
The group has marketed itself aggressively on the Internet, garnering more than 26,000 plays and over 16,000 friends on its MySpace page over 54,000 plays on Number One Music and selling downloads on iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, eMusic, MusicNet and Sony Connect.
Bitetti refers to the band’s sound as “original classic rock,” remarking that approximately 80% of its MySpace friends are under the age of 25. “There is no commercial radio format for this kind of music, which is being discovered by kids for the first time via the Internet.”
According to Bitetti, the purpose of Shelter From the Storm Records is also “to help young bands achieve their goals while avoiding the pitfalls we went through.” The second release from the label will be local buzz band In Theory, whose debut album This Is It streets June 5.
“We’re very serious about what we’re trying to accomplish, but I wouldn’t mind putting a stake in the ground and saying, ‘We are the real Spinal Tap,’” laughs Bitetti. “Our story has had so many twists and turns—and is so emotionally charged that it would make a great movie.”
