This is the story of Takota. Following the explosive demise of his former band Spindle, vocalist Grant Arnow returned to his long-estranged home of Orange County to build Americas next great rocknroll band. There, he met Andy Lara (guitar), Brett Anderson (guitar) and Danny Roddy (bass), frustrated members of Varota, along with Justin Ferreria (drums), a recent refugee of Reel Big Fish and Longfellow. Immediately, the five realized that they shared a common goal: above all else, each wanted to be part of the biggest band in the world.
Takota hearkens to the greater days of Rock and Roll: the days of Journey, Queen and Zeppelin, when students were compelled to carve band names into school desks. Reinventing the staples of the Ziggy Stardust era -- swaggering frontmen, guitar heroes, and thundering rhythm sections -- Takota is guided by a time when rock was an eternal notion and an endless vision, free of the cumbersome lameness spawned by the whack bands of the 90s. Takota will mark a return to this greatness to create a true musical rapture: golden tones, melodious guitars, and crushing drums. This world is Takota's arena.
