StOp,sToP! are an energy-fueled Metal & Roll band, categorized as one of the most exciting and entertaining live bands around. After their album release this April, they were back with 4 new, undeniably catchy, hair-thrashing singles with new tongue-in-cheek videos which are nearly as outrageous as them!
The wild adventures of Jacob A.M, band leader, bassist and singer, is real film material. The search for the right band members took him everywhere; from street musician in Barcelona and Milan, to living in a van on LA’s Sunset Boulevard. Surprisingly, it was only once he had returned to Barcelona that Jacob finally found it lucky.
In 2007 StOp,sToP! was born and after a few line-up changes, the band’s debut album, ‘Unlimited’, was crafted and finally released in January 2010.
In 2011 after frustration of nothing happening in Spain for them, the singer moved with his band mates from Barcelona to the U.K. to find a better future. They had $25 between them, lived in cars, the street, vans…they busked as street performers until they finally got pub gigs. They persisted, finally got a house to live and grow as a band, investing every penny into the band along the way.
Once all settled down in Birmingham/U.K., the second album, ‘Join the Party’, was released on April 17th, 2014. A record deal with the German label Metalapolis Records followed with UK gigs taking place every weekend, tours throughout Europe and also playing at some of the most important international festivals like Rocklahoma – U.S.A , The Ice Rock Festival – Switzerland, SleazeFest – Germany, HEAT Festival – Germany, The Godney Gathering – U.K., Hard Rock Hell – U.K., Legends of Rock – U.K...
Another album, 'Barceloningham', came out on 7th October, 2016 with the same label, a label who did ZERO for them to get exposure. Not happy about it and after a long fight, in 2018 StOp,sToP! finally took back control of their music and videos and went independent again. Soon after that they started the recording of their 4th studio work 'Get Selfied' which was released in April this year.
With their new album's single 'The Last Call' being air played on major radio stations like 'Planet Rock', 'Kerrang' and 'BBC Radio', StOp,sToP! proofs how far they can go!
" - StOp,sToP! is a trio that did the 1st 2 weeks support for the recent SOTO tour, they were completely unknown by everyone in the crowd and had them eating out of the palm of their hands by the end. Very fun, very entertaining, very energetic and balls to wall, frenetic and unapologetic! - "
Jeff Scott Soto (Yngwie Malmsteen, Talisman, Sons Of Apollo)
“ - Hailing from Barcelona this 3 piece rock band will transport you back to the good times when the metal was glam, the hair was big and guys wore make - up and didn't give a two shit monkeys what anyone thought coz they rocked like muthafuc*ers and that's exactly what these guys do - "
“ - Playing a blistering set of riffs, thundering guitars and soaring vocals StOp,sToP! aren't afraid to put on a show! – "
" - Stop Stop have to be one of the hardest working touring bands right now, these guys eat, sleep and breathe rock n' roll. Their sound is reminiscent of the glory days of 80's rock but yet they still manage to sound unique and modern. Kick-ass rock for the 21st Century! - "
Darren Simons (The Victoria)
