Kiwi Rock Band Like A Storm Reach #1 On American Rock Radio

Kiwi Rock Band like A Storm reach #1 On American Rock Radio


Click for big version.

Kiwi hard rockers Like A Storm have just hit #1 on the nationwide U.S rock station SiriusXM Octane with their new single ‘Love the Way You Hate Me’. The band of New Zealand brothers surpassed some of the biggest names in modern rock including Avenged SevenfoldFive Finger Death Punch and Korn to claim the top spot in SiriusXM Octane's Weekly Countdown. The New York-based satellite network broadcasts coast-to-coast in both the United States and Canada, and is home to infamous shock jock Howard Stern

Love the Way You Hate Me’, which began its radio climb by breaking a U.S radio station record, has also made a huge impact in the band's native New Zealand. The song recently debuted at #6 on The Rock FM, the country’s biggest rock station, and debuted at #16 on the  40 New Zealand Top Singles Chart.

With their latest offering smashing its way onto American airwaves, Auckland-bred Like A Storm have now achieved more successful US Hard Rock singles than any other New Zealand band in history. A heavy rock anthem which features singer Chris Brooks playing the didgeridoo, ‘Love the Way You Hate Me’ showcases the band's massive musical growth on their recent sophomore effort, CHAOS THEORY: PART 1 (which is released in New Zealand on Friday, March 21)The band's second album was an ambitious undertaking both creatively and logistically - written and produced by Like A Storm's multi-instrumentalist brothers Chris,Matt and Kent Brooks while the band was out on a nationwide U.S tour.

Ironically, ‘Love the Way You Hate Me’ was never intended to be a single. But after Michigan rock station 101.5FM The Banana unexpectedly spun the song one night on their Cagematch song competition, listeners responded overwhelmingly and the song went on to win every night for over a month until it was retired from the competition - shattering the station's existing record. Radio stations all over North America started taking notice of the song and with its unique musical statement, ‘Love the Way You Hate Me’has grabbed the attention of rock fans all over North America.

Like A Storm are currently in New Zealand writing material for their new album, CHAOS THEORY: PART 2, and will return Stateside in March to kick off their next American tour. Watch the video for ‘Love the Way You Hate Me’here

CHAOS THEORY: PART 1 is released on Friday, March 21 and can be pre-ordered now from iTunes and JB Hi-Fi.
