Stolen Babies: 5 Facts that Shed Light on the Band’s Name
Comprised of singer Dominique Lenore Persi, brothers drummer Gil Sharone (ex-Dillinger Escape Plan) and bassist Rani Sharone, plus touring guitarist Davey Oberlin, Stolen Babies is a metal band that take on their songwriting and presentation in a left-of-center approach.
Most folks actually refer to their musical output as "avant-garde," and Noisecreep isn't going to argue with that observation. Naught, Stolen Babies' sophomore album, is a soundtrack type of journey that features carnival-like instrumentation, wildly inventive arrangements and shapeshifting vocal performances from Persi.
Stolen Babies are currently out on a North American tour with Turisas and Firewind and Noisecreep took a moment out of their schedule to clarify something about the band.
It seems that many people question the group's name, and come up with various, and erroneous, meanings behind it. Stolen Babies have sent Noisecreep 5 light-shedding facts about their band name that will hopefully silence the noise.
5 Facts About Our Band Name That Hopefully Sheds Some Light:
1. We are called "Stolen Babies" not "The Baby Stealers." Some people erroneously seem to see no differentiation between the two and ask "Why do you steal babies?!?" Uhhhhh, we don't.
2. The name "Stolen Babies" was taken from a small scale theatrical stage production of our previous band, The Fratellis.
3. The name is not literal and shouldn't be taken seriously. It has no basis in reality or wishes to portray any real life events. We look at it like we would an old MGM or Fleischer cartoon.
4. We have tried to change the name on numerous occasions but could never find anything that suited us better. It's quirky, provocative, and even disturbing nature parallels our music perfectly.
5. According to numerology the name adds up to neat stuff!
