The origins of the Electro-Rock outfit Innerpartysystem can be traced
in 2002, when vocalist Patrick Nissley and drummer Jared Piccone attended
school together in Reading, Pennsylvania USA, an hour outside of Philadelphia.
The duo started writing songs together, inspired by both by their love
of electronic music, Industrial and Punk.
Things got serious around 2006; Innerpartysystem's music started picking up some serious hits on MySpace. Wanting to tour, Nissley and Piccone recruited some new bandmates, including Kris Barman, a former high school friend who had relocated to Florida and Jesse Cronan, an acquaintance of the band. The addition of these two, who are more apt to play synths than guitars, veered the band further into samples and electronic direction. The band eventually caught the attention of Stolen Transmission, which signed the group later that same year.
The band's first album was an EP entitled "Download", a 6-song
batch of self-recorded demos.
As the band preps its first video for their debut single, "Don't Stop" they also plan to spend most of 2008 touring, including appearances at Lollapalooza Music Festival and prestigious dates as opening concert act for Nine Inch Nails.
Innerpartysystem's eponymously titled, first full-length disc arrived in September 2008, debuting in the top 5 of The Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart while the aforementioned first single "Don't Stop", managed to crack The Hot Modern Rock list with a peak of #35.
