2019 News | New Music Coming

Certain Stars has completed recording and mixing of 15 new songs. Working with Shane Hochstettler (HOWL Street Studios) as they did for 2012's The Great Destroyer full length, allowed the band to take more chances- layering effects, and pedal steel to a few tracks, while staying true to the band's straight ahead rock roots.

The band will release a full length CD in summer/fall 2019.

Here is what they're saying about Certain Stars-

"...something tells me these Wisconsin hopefuls have the potential to open up that proverbial can of kick-ass".
The Big Takeover,

"This is a great rock CD with good songs, period.  Certain Stars excel by not taking themselves too seriously while still being able to rock out . . . just good songs, unique personality, and an overall fun CD."
The Songcast

"Certain Stars has made an album I can throw on in my car and just rock out to. Itís melodic pop in the vain of Big Star - very high energy, very simple, very driving and upbeat. Itís packed to the brim with crunchy guitars and chugging bass lines designed to get you dancing at a bar, or while cruising down the highway in June."
Matt Cohen- Delusions of Adequacy
