Combining catchy rock & roll strains with silvery pop tunes, Peepshow introduces new figures for pop/rock's most daring conceptions. Guitarist Adam Stackpole was the founding element of Peepshow in late 1998, in Seattle, WA. In the following year, vocalist Brian Armstrong and keyboard expert Bobby Lohnes joined in before the final lineup additions of drummer Chase Culp and bassist Blake Micheletto in late 1999. After securing the work of producer Scott Olsen, who previously worked with crews such as Alice in Chains, Limp Bizkit, or Powerman 5000, the band entered the studio to record its first demo. Their singular tunes started buzzing around Seattle's music scene, propelling the group for continuous airplay on local radio stations and ultimately providing inspiring reviews by the media. Peepshow also developed a major live tradition, due to their galvanizing and powerful shows. In 2001, the crew settled on recording their first full-length, Serenity, that hit the record stores later that year.
