About 8stops7

After releasing their first album independently, 8stops7 was signed to Reprise Records (under Time Warner) and released their sophomore effort In Moderation in 2000. It achieved moderate success, with two of its songs reaching the top 40 on Billboard’s Rock, Alternative and Adult charts.

Unfortunately, the band was one of many who were unceremoniously dropped from Time Warner’s roster (along with Poe, Orgy, Cowboy Mouth and Wilco, among others) during the company’s infamous disastrous merger with AOL in 2001. The sole criterion used to determined which bands to keep or drop was whether or not a band’s current album had sold a million copies or not.

The merger was later called ‘the biggest mistake in corporate history’ and the dumped bands (including 8Stops7) were left spiraling back down to relative obscurity while trying to pick up the pieces and re-establish themselves for several years.

8Stops7 spent the next few years separating from their manager. Finally In 2006, the group was able to release their third album Bend. In 2012, the original lineup reunited and dropped their fourth album Fables.

In 2017, the band announced a new record deal, the completion of several songs for a new album and plans of studio time on their official Twitter account, but as of August 2018 nothing has yet materialized.
