7/7/23 - (SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, CA) - Pump5, a long running rock group based out of Southern California, has been busy pushing their latest single “Make Me” and newest album Paradise Place, which was released on April 20th. As one of the hardest working independent rock groups in the region, the band has worked tirelessly with touring, recording and “pumping out” some of the best riffs, solos and vocal hooks in the genre. Paradise Place was produced by Dennis Hill (Face to Face, Fenix TX) and mixed by Mike Troolines (Ignite, Los Lobos). “Make Me” and the album are available to stream now on all DSPs.

Pump5 is led by frontman Steven Barnett, who initially had the genesis of the group in the 90’s, finally released their debut effort Tour in 2004. The group is rounded out by bassist Drew Cates, drummer Andre Bonter (The Poorboys, Lefty) and guitarist Alex Kane (Life Sex & Death, Enuff Z’Nuff). On the heels of their 2017 album Full Service, “Make Me” elevates their brand of rock, bringing top level production together with songs that are at the top of their writing game. With the success of Full Service, the band then toured and shared the stage with other groups like Bullet Boys, Great White, L.A. Guns, Puddle of Mudd, Ratt, Terri Nunn of Berlin and more.

Listeners of Velvet Revolver, Stone Sour, Myles Kennedy, GNR, LIT, Buckcherry and more will appreciate Pump5’s anthemic energy, pulsing rock riffs and a stage presence that will keep everyone dancing like Scott Weiland and Axl Rose. Within seconds of listening to Paradise Place, listeners can’t help but be taken back to the 90’s heyday of rock, which has since made a massive comeback in pop culture. Guitar rock and soaring solos are back, and Pump5 has been masters of this craft the entire time. Their time is now, and the longtime group of friends are just getting started.
