The L.A. pop-punk group Tsar created in 1998 and quickly won favorable evaluations for their enthusiastic gigs and anthemic songwriting. The group (Jeff Whalen (lead vocals/acoustic guitar,) Daniel Kern (vocals/ acoustic guitar,) Jeff Soloman (bass) and Steve Coulter (drums)) authorized a cope with Hollywood Information and delivered their self-titled debut recording in middle-2000. The recording was a thrilling, hook-filled contemporary power pop record that no one bought, despite (or simply due to) the band’s following opening slot on the Duran Duran tour. The group released a promo-only EP in 2001(Ruler of the institution) and because of label politics, nothing at all. They continued composing songs and documenting, finally earning their launch from Hollywood in 2004. After some line-up adjustments (Chuck Byer changed Steve Coulter in middle-2004, Derrick Neglect changed Jeff Soloman in early 2005) TSAR released Bands-Girls-Money for fresh label TVT in June of 2005.
