  Scott Stapp is known as a Grammy winning songwriter and frontman for Creed (over 50 million albums sold worldwide), and for his work as a solo artist who released the platinum-certified The Great Divide (2005) and Proof of Life (2013) which featured his first solo Billboard #1, “Slow Suicide.” His next solo venture reflects a new outlook after the biggest fight of his life – five years and counting. With new single “Purpose For Pain,” one of rock’s biggest names roars back to the scene with a driving, introspective new single. It is the first song from Scott Stapp’s upcoming album, THE SPACE BETWEEN THE SHADOWS, set for July 2019 release on Napalm Records. The album documents a five-year journey to find meaning – and redemption – in a world where shadows lurk and the space between is a gauntlet towards the light.
Scott’s evolution, both personally and professionally, now reflects a powerful vocal style from an artist with a strong sense of purpose in sharing the silver lining of his survival. As such, he is an inspiration to others who struggle with the often over-lapping illnesses of addiction and depression. Scott Stapp’s With Arms Wide Open Foundation helps military vets and their families with issues of drug addiction, PTSD-triggered mental health issues and suicide prevention. In 2017, the Florida Association of Broadcasters awarded Scott Stapp with the Florida Service Award and in 2018 he was inducted into the Florida Music Hall of Fame.

In their spare time, Nick and Matt buy, restore and sell classic cars.

Weapons of Anew

Ray West – Voice
Freddy Ordine – Guitar
Stefan “Reno” Cutrupi – Bass
Chris Manfre – Drums

          “[Weapons of Anew] had no shortage of energy with their stage performance…[and] left the crowd wanting more.” – Shockwave Magazine

          “[Weapons of Anew] kept the audience mesmerized and could have easily played a longer set.  They are definitely a band to watch out for.” – Music Life Magazine

Rarely are such accolades showered upon a band who had just completed their first-ever live shows; and who have yet to release their debut disc!  Yet, while bands faced with similar obstacles often collapse from the immense pressure, Weapons of Anew flourished.  During their opening sets on Alter Bridge’s recent “The Last Hero” tour the band’s members simply realized “they were meant to be together.”

Key to the band’s recent “live” success: the professionalism of the band’s musicians led by former Axiom and HavocHate guitarist Freddy Ordine—and former Spread Eagle vocalist Ray West, a born frontman whose confidence and command of the stage has attracted a growing fan base now eagerly awaiting the arrival of the aforementioned debut.
