Originally formed in the summer of 2004 in Carson, CA, with Ryan Miranda and James Carman, IMAGES (formerly known as Easy Image) decided to make their own interpretation of art through the form of musical expression. During high school, they began throwing their own backyard shows where they met Nick Faciane, who shared similar interests and views of the way a band should be. He was later asked to join IMAGES, in late 2005, which added a new element to help fulfill and master their sound, and finally completing the lineup for the group.
After only two years of playing as a band, IMAGES were invited to play with Buzzcocks in 2006 on two separate occasions, one at the House of Blues in Anaheim and the other at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood. They have again played with the punk legends, opening their west coast tour in June, 2010.
The group had gone through a large cycle of partially successful drummers; but it was after the band travelled to New York City in the autumn of 2009 that James decided to play drums live, while retaining most lead vocal duties. This lineup recorded in Seattle soon afterwards [a three-track promo CD from that session called Limited Edition is now available] and played several shows so successfully that they have continued as a three-piece. They are just completing another round of Seattle sessions, with producer Bruno Modolo, and will be releasing a 7" single soon, a joint release with two LA-based record labels, on top of a recent CD single, "Frustration" b/w "16 Chemicals."
Thrashing through with a sound that is at once intense, melodic, and danceable, IMAGES are a group of diverse musicians who intertwine their influences, DIY ethic, and performances to create an art that is fresh and inspired in their Los Angeles hometown.
IMAGES were named one of the top 100 live & unsigned bands of 2010 by Music Connection magazine.
