Top 8: FM Static

FM Static is a two-piece Toronto-based pop punk band currently signed to Tooth Nail Records. The band was started as a side project by Thousand Foot Krutch frontman, Trevor McNevan and drummer Steve Augustine. The lineup included John Bunner on guitar and Justin Smith on bass. Their first album "What Are You Waiting For?" was produced by Aaron Sprinkle, who also produced Thousand Foot Krutch's album Phenomenon, and featured the singles "Definitely Maybe", "Something to Believe In", and "Crazy Mary." FM Static toured through 2003 to 2005, John Bunner quickly retired after playing a few shows and so Justin asked his brother Jeremy to fill in for them. On August 1, 2006, FM Static released their second album entitled "Critically Ashamed", which featured the single "Waste of Time." Originally, a cover of Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" was to be included in this album, but it was removed later in the production process. The band did not tour in support of their second album as the Smith brothers had stopped playing for them, so FM Static became a two-piece band with studio musicians filling in for the other parts. While their second album featured only the single "Waste of Time," the songs Tonight and Moment of Truth went on to become huge unadvertised internet hits, as well as hits on some radio stations. The song Tonight had garnered over 6 million hits on Youtube as of April 2009, while Moment of Truth had over 3 million. FM Static have been nominated for GMA Canada Covenant Awards.
