Talk to any of the millions of people who have played Guitar Hero, and you're likely talking to someone who has heard Shaimus, the Los Angeles-based alternative rock band whose song ""All Of This"" was featured in the first installment of the smash hit video game franchise. Using the success of the game and a West Coast tour as a springboard, Shaimus generated 16,000 iTunes Music Store downloads in addition to selling over 1,500 copies of their debut album, Paper Sun, without the help of a label. After being a featured artist on San Diego radio station Sophie 103.7's ""Unsigned Sundays,"" Shaimus has now graced the airwaves of mainstream, college, and XM radio. In addition to licensing their music to MTV Networks, the band tapped into the TV market when their song ""Slow Down"" appeared on the popular Australian cooking show, Bill's Food.

The five members of Shaimus met at Berklee College of Music in Boston where they recorded Paper Sun, a 10 song album produced by band members Johannes Raassina (bass) and Phil Beaudreau (lead vocals/keys) that showcased their tight songwriting and tasteful musicianship. They headed to Southern California where the CD was mastered by 2-time Grammy winner Gavin Lurssen and immediately released to satisfy the demand that arose from being in Guitar Hero. Knowing that their fans were their future, the band has made a point of interacting with their growing fanbase via the internet, compiling an email list of over 1,000 subscribers, racking up 200,000 MySpace plays, and attracting 4,000 visitors per month to their official website.

Now coming off a 7 month bi-weekly residency at L.A.'s Club Good Hurt and with a wealth of new material that continues to evolve the Shaimus sound of memorable hooks, introspective lyrics, and fiery guitar work, the sky is the limit for a band with one humble and modest goal: total world domination.
