Stillwell – Street Metal


StillWell, previously known as Capital Q, is an American rock band formed by Q-Unique, Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu from Korn, and drummer Wuv from P.O.D.

StillWell’s first album, titled Dirtbag, was released on 10 May 2011. The album was produced by Fieldy and Grammy Award-winning producer PolarBear, with the DVD being directed by Sébastian Paquet.

StillWell formed in early 2006, quickly entering the studio, and putting out their first single, “Killing Myself to Live” in October 2007. Since then, the band has been off-and-on recording their first album, although Fieldy’s involvement in Korn is thought to play a factor in the long recording process.

The band is in production of their first album, a CD/DVD package, titled Dirtbag. They’ve released several trailers for the album, which can be seen on YouTube.

StillWell are confirmed to be opening for Korn during the second leg of the Music as a Weapon V Tour. Along with this news, several tracks were confirmed to appear on Dirtbag, such as “Golden Ticket”, “Magnetic Daze”, and a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love”.

Dirtbag became available to download on iTunes on April 2, 2011. It was released in physical format on May 10, 2011. “You Can’t Stop Me” has also been released as the album’s lead single. A music video for “You Can’t Stop Me” premiered on August 10, 2011, directed by Sébastien Paquet, Scott Keyzers, and Joshua Allen.

StillWell describes its musical style as “street metal”. Allmusic’s William Ruhlmann described the band’s style as being predominately hard rock, with some tracks touching upon funk and hip hop.
