ROXYSTAR is a Las Vegas indie rock band with an alluring dark and atmospheric sound melded with moody, romantic melodies.
The founding foursome are Niles Thomas (lead vocals, guitar), Sam Lemos (guitar, backing vocals), Nick Schmitt (bass) and Nick Kittle (drums). Prior to officially forming the band, each musician has had their own respective successes, including Niles previously signed under the EMI Music and Warner Chappell umbrellas, and Nick Kittle as one of the performers in Blue Man Group, and have performed with each other in various music groups in their hometown of Las Vegas and around the world, ultimately striking chemistry together to form ROXYSTAR.
While their music is inspired by the likes of Joy Division, Nick Cave, Radiohead, Depeche Mode, Massive Attack, The Cure and Portishead, to name a few – it’s not a derivative. ROXYSTAR honors the essence of those bands while transforming the music into something unique and refreshing, creating their own style and voice completely aside from their influences.
The video for their new single ‘Underneath The Dying Stars’, directed by Timothy Norris, was shot in downtown Las Vegas and the landmark mountain range south of the Las Vegas valley, Black Mountain, and features model/dancer/aerialist Heather Foltz.
