Stitched Up Heart is an American hard rock band on Another Century Records.[1] The band was formed in 2010 in Los Angeles by singer Alecia "Mixi" Demner.

History[edit]

The group was founded in 2010 by vocalist Alecia 'Mixi' Demner. Later joined by drummer James Decker, guitarist Merritt Goodwin, bassist Randy Mathias and guitarist Nick Bedrosian.[2]

After several years spent developing their sound, recording demos and playing in local clubs, in 2015 Stitched Up Heart was signed to Another Century Records, a division of Century Label Group. A new single, "Finally Free," was released in late 2015 and eventually reached No. 19 in America's Active Rock Radio Chart.[3] A follow-up single, "Monster," was unveiled April 29, 2016[4] and Billboard.com premiered the song “Event Horizon” on June 3, 2016.[5] The band's major label debut, the album Never Alone was released on June 17, 2016 and debuted in the Top 10 of both the Billboard Heatseeker and Hard Rock charts.[1][6]

In early 2017, the ensemble toured with American hard rock band Letters from the Fire.[7] After two months off the road, Stitched Up Heart headlined a sell-out concert at The Knitting Factory in Boise Idaho on Friday April 21, 2017 promoted by local radio station 100.3 The X.[8]
