Nashville based Punk / Metal Band DIGITAL BRAINS has released the lyric video for their new single, “The Itch,” out now via Go Long Entertainment.
“We won’t say who this happened to, but, we all like the bad girls. Face it, they’re fun. Girls, you like the bad guys too. You know, when there’s that person you know is no good for you, but it’s so right….at least the sex is anyway? So right, you get “The Itch” to go back, even when you know you shouldn’t because you’re addicted to them. You get “The Itch” to go back, because something about the way the treat you like shit keeps you hooked. Unfortunately, sometimes the bad girls (or boys) give you more than you bargained for. When “The Itch” sends you to the doctor, well, its a bitch.” – ADAM SHOENFELD (Vocals)
Digital Brains is a rock band based in Nashville, TN. An original blend of Punk, Metal, and Rock.
Drummer Corey Boise is a wild man, he brings a power and punk attitude to the stage that is infectious.
Bassist Danny Faillo lays down solid, melodic groove that is no doubt a product of his Chicago musical bloodline.
Singer and guitarist Adam Shoenfeld throws down Green Day-esque tones, scorching leads, and sings memorable, melodic, and emotional lyric.
Separately, the trio has traveled the world and made their musical mark.
Together, they are a musical force to be reckoned with.
Lead guitarist and singer of Digital Brains is also part of the 70’s Rock inspired duo SunKat.
Sunkat’s song, Tom Petty, made it’s satellite radio debut on Steve Ferrone’s (of The Heartbreakers) The New Guy Show, on Tom Petty Radio Sirius XM and continues to pile up streams.
As a sideman, Adam has played guitar on over 30 Billboard #1 songs. Few people have had as big of a behind-the-scenes impact on modern country music as guitarist, songwriter and producer Adam Shoenfeld.
With the crunchy, loud and proud opening notes of his lead guitar on Big & Rich’s “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),” and the edgy, aggressive tone heard on Jason Aldean’s breakout smash “Hicktown,” Shoenfeld blazed a trail for a wave of hard-rock influenced country that changed the genre forever — and he hasn’t looked back since.
Born in Huntington, New York, and raised in New Jersey with a love of jazz, blues, rock and heavy metal, Shoenfeld came to Nashville at the age of 19 and began working as an in-house musician at Woodland Studios. There he met “Big Kenny” Alphin and later John Rich, going on to became a member of the infamous music-and-art collective known as the MuzikMafia and Rich’s go-to studio guitarist, laying down demos for soon-to-be groundbreaking songs like Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman.”
With the formation of Big & Rich in 2003, Shoenfeld was invited to play guitar on the duo’s debut album, Horse of a Different Color, including the multi-platinum single “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).” The song ditched familiar country sounds in favor of Shoenfeld’s brash, live-oriented feel, and helped open the floodgates in country’s new era of crossover success. He has since played on every Big & Rich album, and toured with the group from 2005-2007 and 2009.
Around the same time Big & Rich was getting started, Shoenfeld became member of Jason Aldean’s showcase band hoping to score the rock-loving Georgia native a record deal. Once Aldean was signed, Shoenfeld stayed on to develop the superstar’s muscular sound and provided the chugging, down-and-dirty lead on Aldean’s debut single “Hicktown,” which went on to become a Top 10 hit and earn platinum sales status. Shoenfeld has been featured on every subsequent Aldean release.
Following the success of Big & Rich and Aldean, Shoenfeld’s unique sound made him an in-demand studio guitarist, and he has now been included on over 200 albums including titles by Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Steven Tyler, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, Thomas Rhett, Alabama, Tim McGraw, Lee Brice, Rascal Flatts, and many more. His work has led to nominations for the Academy of Country Music’s Guitarist of the Year award in 2011, 2012 and 2015, as well as numerous first round nominations for CMA Awards Musician of the Year award.
As a songwriter, Shoenfeld was awarded SESAC’s Song of the Year honor for Faith Hill’s “Mississippi Girl” in 2005, and he is also the co-writer of Big & Rich’s “Real World, “High Five,” “When the Devil Gets the Best of Me” and “M-E-D-E-L-Y of the Hillbilly Jedi,” plus Aldean’s “Laid Back.”
As a producer, he has guided projects for John Rich (Rich Rocks), Sarah Darling (Angels & Devils), Kelsey Harmon (One Big Favor), luvjOi (Volume 2) and more.
In 2012, Shoenfeld joined Tim McGraw’s touring band and currently travels with the group when he is not in the studio.
