Split Fifty is a rock band from Pennsylvania that was offered a deal with Universal Music in 2007 but the band and management disagreed and they ended up not signing. The band released their debut "We live forever" in 2005 and followed up with the sophomore album "Swing from her fingernails" in 2007, they started working on their 3rd album in 2008 but major personal issues rose between the bandmembers and they split up in 2009. The guitarist Ted Felicetti is playing with the new band Don´t Panic, singer Zach Neill, guitarist Josh Bodwell and drummer Mike Lucchetti went on to form American Sixgun. Their last album "Swing from her fingernails" sound like a 2nd division SR 71 with traces of Offspring, we´re talking straight ahead rock in a pop punk suit. The title track is actually pretty good as well as the opener "Overture in a minor", but the album contains lots of fillers.
