Better Off Alone
The Standard Issue is about to release it's first album 'BETTER OFF ALONE' as well as the single titled the same. The CD was recorded in Abilene,Tx @ The Glass Jar studio and was mastered by Bob Boyd of Ambient Studio. The boys of The Standard Issue would like to personally thank our family and friends and the wonderful cities of Denton and Dallas. Originating in Texas towns such as Austin, Mesquite, Allen, San Antonio, and even as north as Portland Oregon. Their passion for music greatly outweighs thier hobbies of big game hunting, firewalking, and base jumping. A wide variety of personal tastes in music produces unique and varied tracks, while the vocal prowess of singer/guitarist Preston Cole transmits the messages of the five. Setting the tempo is the backbone of TSI, Colin Hill, and it is rare to see him without some form of percussion resounding a harmonious beat. Providing the deep tones is bass player Chris Collier, who is as animated as he is talented. Holding steady is rhythm guitarist Travis Marks, the most recent addition. Laying down licks and shredding with a reckless abandon is lead guitarist Aaron Self, whose fearlessness is rivaled by none. These five men are The Standard Issue.
