Boston-based duo Serial Thrillers is the Alt-pop rock creation of singer/songwriter Paul Ortolano and ex-Berklee drummer Stephen Clements. Their 12-song self titled debut CD “Serial Thrillers,” released in late 2008 and produced by Anthony J. Resta (Collective Soul, Duran Duran, Shawn Mullins, Perry Farrell), is a powerful taste of edgy pop revisiting classic rock – think Foo Fighters meets Teenage Fanclub, with a nod to the power pop sensibilities of Fountains of Wayne and the lush intricacies of Jellyfish.
Ortolano and Clements have worked together in several bands, sharing stages with the likes of King’s X, Godsmack, Howie Day, Big Wreck, The Tubes, Warrant and Extreme. They also teamed up with New wave front girl and legendary singer Dale Bozzio for a tour with (one of Gwen Stefani’s favorite super groups) Missing Persons. Over the past several years they’ve kept busy writing, recording, and playing venues in the US, as well as doing live on-air interviews and performances at numerous rock and college stations in New England. Additionally, Stephen’s studio session work and Paul’s guitar work have been featured on radio remixes for RCA Records and Hollywood Records.
Born from a mixture of musical talent, technology, and media exploration, the duo brings a dynamic and guitar-energized studio sound to the live stage, accompanied by visual textures of synchronized lighting and original video art/Indie film clips to saturate the senses.
The songs, written by Paul Ortolano, are Serial Thrillers’ foundation – unusual, beautiful compositions with influences that span from pop to progressive and lyrics that can cut with a blunt edge, or mix fiction and autobiography into delightfully ambiguous landscapes. From the melodious twists and turns of “Defied” (featuring special guest drummer Ryan Hoyle of Collective Soul) to the upbeat shuffle and honesty of “So Beautiful” to the bold commentary of straight-up rock tracks “Unattractive” and “Miss Black and White,” Serial Thrillers has something to thrill most everyone.
The band is gearing up for Northeast tour dates in the winter/spring of 2008 as they promote the Serial Thrillers debut CD release to radio across the US and Canada and the world via the internet. The new album & singles will be available at www.Serial-Thrillers.com, iTunes, CDbaby, Myspace, and many other web & retail outlets.
