Through different music connections and friends in NYC and LA, Julian Casablancas+The Voidz have come together as band over these past four years. They’ve bonded over their love of beat driven, aggressive and avant-garde music with the power of modern harmonies to make it catchy and powerful. A punk band that can play any style of music, they take pride in their versatility...the band consists of Jeramy Gritter (aka Beardo) on guitar a highly skilled guitarist as well as the self-proclaimed “trailer park hero;” Amir Yaghmai virtuoso guitarist (grew up playing violin then listening to metal); Alex Carapetis (aka Young Pirate) on drums bringing a whole new level of rhythm to rock music; Jeff Kite on keyboard one of the founding members and key songwriters; and Jake Berkovici on Bass the wise stabilizing anchor (musically and vibe-wise) as well as Stevie Wonder synth-bass wonder-child. With Julian Casablancas of the Strokes on vocals as well as directing the whole thing (much like he did with early days Strokes), the band is very much a collaboration founded on old friendships and musical kinship. The Voidz recorded in NYC, where Julian and Alex reside, while the rest of the band currently lives in L.A.
