From Their Home Base in Carefree, Arizona to Major Festival Stages in Norway, Electronic Pop/Dance Band Peachcake Is on a Mission to "Save the World From Audio-Terrorism"

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/13 -- With a reality TV show in the works based on the successes and travails of the Arizona-based indie electronic pop/dance band Peachcake (www.peachcake.net), frontman Stefan Pruett and his crew are not only a growing international phenomenon -- with two headlining appearances at Norway's huge Slotsfjell Festival -- but they're also "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

All while, in his words, continuing the band's mission to "save the world, musical superhero style, from 'audio-terrorism.'"

And it's all because "You Matter," the infectious single from their new album Unbelievable Souls that has not only hit playlists on many FM and college stations throughout the U.S., but has found its way onto some of cable TV's biggest shows -- including MTV's "The Challenge," Showtime's "The Real L Word," TNT's "Hawthorne" -- in addition to playing as a soundtrack behind the ever-popular sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe.

The video for their hypnotic, synth-driven musical manifesto "The World is Our Platform To Mean Something" chronicles their rise in the U.S. and their incredible success in Norway, which includes performing at the 2012 Slotsfjell Festival on a bill with New Order, Janelle Monae, Suicidal Tendencies and Friendly Fires.

In 2011, "Were We Every Really Right?" was selected by the International Peace Bureau and Demilitarize.org as the official song for the Global Day of Action on Military Spending, a worldwide event supporting demilitarization across the globe.

In the years prior to their emergence overseas, Peachcake toured the U.S. extensively, sharing the stage with the likes of Cage The Elephant, She Wants Revenge, Neon Trees and Peter Murphy of Bauhaus. They've also performed on the Warped Tour, South By Southwest (SXSW), Toronto's North by Northeast (NXNE), Canadian Music Week and College Music Journal.

The 14-track masterwork featuring snappy, provocative titles like "Don't Panic, It's Organic," "Who Are These People And Why Does This Music Suck?" and "Speaking of Handouts, I Got You Something," owes as much sonically to legendary German electronic group Kraftwerk as '80s synth-pop greats like New Order, OMD, Depeche Mode and Pet Shop Boys. The album was also mixed with the help of Alex Aldi (Passion Pit, The Walkmen, Holy Ghost!).

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
