"Archie’s West in Tamarac Continues its New Rock Saturdays"

Spano’s Big Radio Show continued bringing the best new rock to South Florida with another show at Archie’s West in Tamarac.

The show, which took place on January 5, featured Shatterglass, Hiatus Road and YourDesign. It drew a sizable, though more subdued, crowd. This made for some excellent people watching while enjoying a drink at the bar. The drink prices at Archie’s are middle of the road, and they have the basics when it comes to beer selection: Corona, Miller Lite, Budweiser, Yuengling, etc.

Although the first band, YourDesign, was scheduled to go on at 9:00 p.m., they didn’t actually take the stage until 10:15 p.m. YourDesign is a fairly new rock band that features the former lead singer of Theory of Disorder, Ricky Coleman. The songs they played got a little repetitive the longer into the set they went, but the band is off to a good start and after they play a few more shows together, they could be great. The two best songs of the set were toward the end. One of these songs, “Better Life”, is currently getting radio airplay on Clewiston’s Call FM station, 91.5.

Fort Lauderdale rock band Hiatus Road went on at 11:15 p.m. Hiatus Road is also a road that runs throughout Broward County, so the band often gets asked if they are named after the road. This is not the case, according to Christian who is the lead singer, who said, “Hiatus Road is a metaphor. Since hiatus means one is on a break, we consider ourselves on the road to a break.”

Hiatus Road had very tight instrumentation and vocals throughout their set. The deeper into the set they got, the better the songs sounded. The standout song of the set, however, was “Right Now”, a song that features driving guitars and lyrics that are great to rock out to.

The last band of the night was Shatterglass, who went on at 12:15 am. For a relatively new band (they’ve been together since early 2011), they have enjoyed a good bit of success: their song “Coming Undone” was featured in Rock Band 3 and they have also recently signed with artist management company Silver Cat Entertainment, who has been heavily promoting Shatterglass’ current single, “Psycho Girlfriend“. Shatterglass was another band who saved the best songs for the end of their set: the vocals, guitar solos and bass lines were some of the best the show had to offer.

Archie’s West has a new rock showcase every Saturday, free to those who are 21+ (and $10 for 18+). For more information on any of the bands, Spano’s Big Radio Show or Silver Cat Entertainment, please visit their respective Facebook pages.

With so many downloads and physical copy CD’s being submitted to RockEyez we basically have to pick and choose what to do as we don’t have enough time in the day to do them all! Don’t get me wrong every CD that comes in does get a listen and we get all kinds of material but in finding that one element that catches your attention you may get hundreds that get passed by. Recently I was contact by Ron Jon drummer of the Ft. Lauderdale band SHATTERGLASS. They have only been together since February 2011 and he wanted to send the physical EP that they just recorded. Well I got it and while driving in my car I popped it in. I listened to the three tracks which were very good; so good that on the second spin I started singing along (and glad my windows were closed!). Any way you can usually tell right off the bat if a band has mass potential or they may just end up being no more than a local favorite
.The first track “Coming Undone” gives the same punch as many high-profile bands like HINDER, NICKLEBACK and others. The song has a great vibe with trance-like guitar chords by Jinx and vocally Zoog has that aura to win over crowds. Plus the background vocals give the song that perfect “added spice” to reach the masses.
“Psycho Girlfriend” is another killer track that alternative radio could be playing on an hourly basis. I love the structure of the songs by SHATTERGLASS. They have that taste of passed acts like GRAHAM PARKER and THE ROMANTICS, yet have the modern day flare.
“Talkabout” rounds out the EP and is another amazing song that has catchy hooks and the kids will go crazy listening too. What more can I say than it’s an EP I would want it in my collection because they are great and have potential. I wish there were more tracks but three is better than nothing! Catch SHATTERGLASS and pick up the EP with these great tracks.

“Playing is solid, polished mix, good for radio play, Straight up Rock.” -


“Really professional sound you guys have going here - excellent production, very 'MTV worthy” -


Beautifully mastered music well thought out EP cover, and a great sound! This is ShatterGlass’s three song EP. Love the solid rock feel of the music. The first song won me over with the title alone: Psycho Girlfriend. Indeed the temptation to hit repeat was very strong. After-all who hasn’t had a Psycho “friend” or two? The lyrics were the first thing to grab me, then the rhythm kept me there to appreciate just how tight this song is. The two songs that followed were just as impressive with excellent guitar riffs, powerful vocals and outstanding rhythm. ShatterGlass demonstrates a uniqueness that is all their own with music that takes us back to the classic rock of yesterday. This band is ready for airplay.

"BigBig Show review of Shatterglass"

Shatterglass has a great sound that will appeal to everyone who loves rock music. Formed in February of 2011, they are a relatively new band from South Florida. The four members have known each other for years and have all played in different bands until now. And the collaborative effort has paid off. The three tracks that can be heard on the are awesome. I heard "Psycho Girlfriend" first and instantly like it - how can you not relate to it? We all know someone with a "Psycho Girlfriend"!! The second track, "Talkabout", is also great. It has a commercial kind of sound but also has its own original style. "Coming Undone" - the third track - has great lyrics, music, and just recently, a great video - a true delight to listen to and watch. Shatterglass is a band worth listening to and will definitely be mainstream before long. -

"Review Of Shatterglass 3 Song EP"

With all of the evolving rock genres out there trying to invent new sounds and new concepts, it is actually refreshing to get right back to good old rock 'n' roll. That is what Shatterglass brings to the table with their self-titled EP. Catchy hooks, driving leads, sing along lyrics and a great chemistry have Shatterglass climbing the ladders of success in just a short time. With their first single "Psycho Girlfriend", the band comes right out of the gate swinging for the fences. Being bass and beat driven by Donnie J. on bass, and Ron Jon on the skins. Coupled with the masterful lead of Jinx on his axe, looping in and around the rhythm so skillfully. The beginning has you moving instantly with its great harmony, hooking you right in. When Zoog comes in with his lyrics, you are immediately reminded of Art Alexakis with his range being smooth, yet grainy at all the right moments. Bringing into focus the feel of Shatterglass as an auditorium rock band. The feeling continues with "Coming Undone", with the instruments taking a back seat to the lead of Zoog's lyrics for the main body of the song. Seemingly a relationship story, you could also attribute the lyrics to a band on the rise, but on the edge. This track represents a soul searching for the band, as they seek out their path in the realm of music. Seeming oblivious at first to the wrongs they may have coursed thus far in their careers as musicians, but always driving forward. With the coming undone being the unfurling of a rose maturing to shed it's budding infant status. Thus explaining the realization of Shatterglass maturing into the rock band that once was an experimental seed, now a fully bloomed rose of success. Whether the band wrote the song this way or not, is up for interpretation, but it is every bit true upon listening to how the group has matured in their music. On the third track, "Talkabout", the band goes back to the anthem styled sound of "Psycho Girlfriend" with that sing along appeal. Equally as entertaining, but standing on it's own merit. Even though the song is a relationship break-up song, it is up tempo and delivers in the "make you move" sense. Bringing back that essence of a band best seen live in auditoriums. Very well written and composed musically. Though lyrically a song about an ended relationship, it is written in a way to have an amicable ending with it only being an end to togetherness, but not life. You could almost see this as being the end to a live show. Using the relationship metaphor as an end to the show, but not an end to the music, as it goes on to the next step. With this three track EP, the band has created the buzz for itself in the rock world. Having the listener craving more music and wanting to see Shatterglass perform live. A very good start to something that is sure to become even bigger as the band progresses. Shatterglass is currently in the studio working on their debut full-length album. If this EP is any indication of what the band has in store, then they are truly on the right track to success. Not trying too hard to create the next big thing or new genre, but doing music the right way. Sticking to the basic formula of storied lyrics, catchy music and good old fashioned rock 'n' roll music. That is what makes Shatterglass, themselves, the next big thing. - B's R.S.M. Promotions


Still working on that hot first release.



In a world dominated by dance, rap, and pop; Shatterglass is bringing great commercial rock back to the masses. Straight out of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Shatterglass comes equipped with an arsenal of infectious melodies over a rock groove. Consisting of four members: Zoog (Vocals), Jinx (Guitars), Donnie J (Bass), and RonJon (Drums & Percussion), there's no stopping these guys when they're doing what they do best- making good music.

Shatterglass was formed in early February 2011, when the guys got together after being in different popular South Florida bands and friends for years. They just wanted to see what kind of music they could create when they combined their talents, little did they know how fast their plans would change! After locking themselves in the recording studio for 3 months with legendary South Florida engineer/producer and friend Paul Trust (Endo, Atom Smash, AL's Not Well, Crease, The Chaos Agent, Enstride, Day Minus 7, Faces of March, Echovalve), the result is a three song EP simply titled "Shatterglass". All three tracks, layered with catchy hooks and awesome harmonies, are sure to re-invent the "sing-a-long" song for a new generation. The band getting ready to go back into the studio. With the overwhelming positive response to the EP and the buzz surrounding their first single, "Psycho Girlfriend", Shatterglass will once again team with Mr. Trust to record more songs towards their first full length release.

The chemistry of Shatterglass is obvious from the balls to the wall bass and drums, to the raw, chunky guitars, to the powerful vocals, the ingredients are there to cement Shatterglass as South Florida's hottest new band. Considering how far they have come in just the few months that they have been together, this is definitely the band to look out for in the very near future.
