History

edit "Break-up" (2009) and "reunion" (2010):

It was widely believed that Bang Camaro broke up after performing at Game Unicon 2009 in Marlboro, MA, or after their performances at Rocklahoma 2009 in Norman, OK, and had their final performance in December 2009 in Boston, MA. Founder and lead guitarist Alex Necochea addressed their broken-up status as ultimately incorrect on the band's official blog in the weeks leading up to their fall 2010 show in Boston, MA.

Musical style and influences

The band is composed of a bassist, a drummer, 2 guitarists, and a lead singer complement which comprises anywhere from eight to twelve vocalists. Their style is similar to late '70s-80s glam and anthem rock music. The basic song structure highlights catchy choruses and integrates frequent guitar solos.

The band cite Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly plus metal bands such as Iron Maiden, Skid Row, Def Leppard, and Dokken as influences. Discussing their anthem rock style, band member Alex Necochea said, "We're really not heavy metal. I think our focus is more on writing great singles, as best as we can make them. That's just something Bryn and I grew up on. We're big fans of melody and big driving hooks, that sort of thing."
