Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers (RCPM) are proof that the crazy, reckless, restless, swaggering soul of American rock is still burning a hole in the night sky ... guitars blaze, quake and quiver, drums slip, thud and thunder with killer melodies and hooks and the occasional reggae or mariachi rhythm laced through the middle to keep it all honest and interesting.” - Tom Jurek, Paste magazine
Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers—Roger Clyne, drummer P.H. Naffah, lead guitarist Jim Dalton and bassist Nick Scropos—is the only independent band to debut in the top ten on the Billboard Internet Sales chart for six consecutive albums, including two number one entries.
Clyne and Naffah enjoyed an accomplished stint with late-'90s rock band the Refreshments, whose cult-classic albumFizzy Fuzzy, Big & Buzzy produced hit singles "Banditos" and "Down Together." The Refreshments also performed the Clyne-penned theme song for Fox television animated hit series King of the Hill.
Clyne & The Peacemakers stepped up to the plate in 2007 when the Arizona Diamondbacks, the band’s hometown World Series champion major league baseball team, called on the band to write a rocking Diamondbacks theme song. The result, the "D-backs Swing" is a home run with Diamondbacks fans everywhere.
Known for blazing innovative musical trails on several releases, the band debuted web-only release Glow in the Dark in February 2009—a sparkling live recording taped in Teaneck, N.J., in 2008. For the release, fans could watch and listen to an entire live show capturing the true spirit and vigor of Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers on the band's website for 14 weeks, with a new song debuting each week.
With the conception of its first ever “VivaCast,” the non-conformist rock 'n' rollers successfully pioneered a revolutionary new way to create music and put fans directly in the recording engineer's seat with an insider's view. The result is captured on March 2008 CD/DVD release Turbo Ocho, which chronicles the creative process of producing eight new songs in eight days. Each song was written, arranged and recorded in a day and, on completion, uploaded to the Internet along with the accompanying day’s video log for thousands of fans to experience.
With Glow in the Dark and Turbo Ocho, Clyne and the Peacemakers have once again shattered old definitions of what is expected of a rock 'n' roll band and forged their own path directly to what matters most—the fans.
