18 years and over
Shattered Display has seen many members come and go. Travis Kirkland started the band in 2003, crafting songs such as "Amphetamine Land", "Constellations", and "Lion's Den" over the course of several years. In October 2009 Shattered Display released their debut album "Kill the Lights and Cut the Nerve" which was recorded in Long Island, New York by Anthony Santonocito at Killingsworth Recording Company. They continued to play shows across the Louisiana area over the next two years. In 2011 John Torres, Jerry Bordelon, and Frank Webb left Shattered Display prompting Travis Kirkland (Guitar) and Tim Clark (Drums) to transition the band into a four piece. Shane Falcon joined the band in January after leaving his former band The Heist. Shortly thereafter, Seth Fenley joined Shattered Display. In the early months as the new front man of the band, Seth brought songs such as "Never Silent", "Bridges", "Just Like You" to the table to form the base for the groups new sound. Shattered Display performed several shows in early 2012 before recording their follow up record "Picking up the Pieces" which was produced by John Lecompt (Evanesence, We Are The Fallen, Machina) and Phil Taylor (Future Leaders of the World, Machina) in Benton, Arkansas at Red Room Studios. In December of 2012 Tim Clark decided to leave the band. Shattered Display immediately began auditioning drummers. In January of 2013 they welcomed Skip Brown into the band on percussion.
