Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: HyeTension (High-Tension)

Recommended if you like: Queens Of The Stone Age, ...The Strokes...

Story behind your band/artist name: The band name was inspired by the horror film, 'High Tension', and me being Armenian, I thought it would be a "cool" idea to change 'High' to 'Hye', which means Armenian, in the, Armenian language….Don't go saying ArmenianTension now.

Band Members: Chris (Lead vocals, Guitar), Ryan (Bass guitar, backing vocals), Sam (Drums, backing vocals)

What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : We are all from Northern Virginia, but our fans and shows are DC based.

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: Every April 24th, we part-take in the protest against the Turkish government, to recognize The Armenian Genocide…... Georgetown is always fun!….
