About Seconds Away

Fairfield, OH

What would you expect from a band with the name, "Seconds Away?" Add in the phrase, "from what?" and you complete the cliff-hanging question that Richie Brees, Del DeGiuseppe, Jake Bertke, and Brad Hollmann seek to answer. Since 2004, Seconds Away has been painting the local music scene with its colorful blend of high energy rock, alternative, and power pop music delivered with a sense of humor that walks the fine line between clever and immature. Unbridled imagination and a fan-centric approach have been the keys for Seconds Away's success

Every change has been a welcomed challenge and every setback has brought forth new opportunities for Seconds Away. After finishing 8th in Emergenza's 2005 Regional Finals among over a thousand bands spanning from Cleveland to St. Louis, Seconds Away hit the studio for the first time, recording with Rob Nadler from On-line Studio (now with Waycross Studios) and released their EP "Your New Favorite Wrong" in January 2006. The well-received debut opened up many opportunities for the band and allowed them to make their mark in the Cincinnati music scene.

Nearing the end of 2007, Shane (drums) and Mark (bass/vocals) moved on to form "The Press Club" while Del and Richie continued forward with Seconds Away. After a fortunate introduction to Erwin Musper (whose name has been credited on albums for such artists as Van Halen, David Bowie, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Mick Jagger, Elton John, Scorpions, Jeff Beck, Chicago, and Metallica) and his studio, The Bamboo Room, Del and Richie decided to hold off the search for replacement members and hit the studio again. The result...Seconds Away's eleven song sophomore album, "Tongue In Cheek" to be released on June, Friday the 13th

The first half of 2008 has been one of high action for the band. Seconds Away has christened new members Jake (drums) and Brad (bass and harmony vocals) with fire by taking opening slots for Avenged Sevenfold, Atreyu, and Bullet For My Valentine in the Taste Of Chaos tour, as well as Saves The Day and Metro Station in the Bamboozle Road tour. The band also briefly partnered with Starzz Promotions, who has represented Cincinnati bands Close To Home, Black Tie Affair, Upset Victory, and Made Avail from Chicago
The stage is set at the Madison Theater, the lights are on cue, and the sound is louder than ever. June, Friday the 13th 2008, ends the "transition period" and marks the opening of the next chapter.
