Rocktober: Get Out And Vote!

David Murphy - STS9 (Sound Tribe Sector 9)

Is this election different than past elections, why or why not?

David Murphy by Eric Rejman
This election is definitely different than in years past, for so many reasons. Just one that comes to mind is that this is the first election since 1980 that we aren't voting for a Bush or a Clinton. It's time to end family dominance in the White House.

What is the relationship between music and politics - and how, if at all, has this relationship affected your music?

Politics absolutely affect music and art in this country, as they do in most countries. Politics and the state of society play a huge roll in STS9's music. We see art and our music as a way to reflect upon society and the state of our times. Our music is a snapshot of the times we live in.

If you could speak directly to all American voters, what would you say?

Find and demand ways of getting non-biased, non-partisan news and ways of staying informed about what is going on in this election and with ALL news. Education and knowledge are our biggest weapons.

STS9 is on tour now, complete dates available here.
