STS9–hailed as “a musical force to be reckoned with” by Wesley Hodges of JAMBANDS.COM (11/6/14)–started the new year with a four-night takeover of the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO which included a special New Year’s Day charity dinner event benefitting Conscious Alliance. 600 lucky fans joined the electronic rock quintet for a memorable evening that the band is now making available for all to experience via BitTorrent Bundle. ONE / ONE: Live from The Fillmore Auditorium – Denver, CO, available Monday, March 9 at 11am PST, is a digital collection spanning 365 days of STS9. The package features this historic performance and is accompanied by a massive collection of the band’s 50 live performances from 2014.
On January 1, 2015 from the floor of the legendary venue, STS9—Hunter Brown (guitar/sequences), Jeffree Lerner (percussion), David Phipps (keyboards/synths), Zach Velmer (drums) and Alana Rocklin (bass)–performed a completely improvised set unlike any other in their history. The quintet weaved through new, unreleased tracks and reinvented takes on fan favorites in one fearless stream of consciousness; a set of music now being touted as one of the finest STS9 performances to date.
ONE / ONE: Live from The Fillmore Auditorium is an exclusive collection only available via BitTorrent Bundle, a direct-to-fan publishing platform. Fans who purchase the ONE / ONE Bundle will receive the remastered, multi-track recording of this all-improv set as well as unlock recordings of every 2014 STS9 show–50 live recordings in total–all for $25. Photos and artwork from the shows will also be made available (see below for details). In anticipation of next week’s Bundle, STS9 has released the first exclusive single from ONE / ONE: Live from The Fillmore Auditorium, “Crystal House;” stream it now on the band’s Soundcloud page here.

Since forming in Atlanta 15 years ago, STS9 has risen to the forefront of the international music scene. Consistently ranked among Pollstar’s list of top-grossing touring acts, the quintet has sold out the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre (recently completing their 11th consecutive year headlining the famed venue), headlined stages at the country’s biggest music festivals, sold out shows across the country as an acoustic set-up in opera houses or as an electronic act in amphitheatres and have raised significant amounts of money towards activism efforts (including $150,000 to the Make It Right Foundation, paving the way to rebuild a house in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans). STS9 also runs their own record label, 1320 Records, whose goal is to bring the music to the people in the most conscious, unique, innovative and savvy ways possible to lessen the distance between artists and fans. The band’s latest studio EP and eleventh album in their full discography, When The Dust Settles, debuted at #1 on the iTunes Electronic Chart and landed them in Billboard’s Top 25 album chart.
