Don't hold Adrian Barrera's past against him.
When his former band the Hiss called it quits shortly after releasing its 2007 full-length Chocolate Hearts, it was the rock and roll band Atlanta loved to hate. Even the four members of the group's final lineup Barrera (vocals/guitar), Todd Galpin (drums), Milton Chapman (keyboard) and George Reese (bass) were sick of the Hiss.
Rather than make a clean break, however, they retooled everything from the ground up. "The Hiss' whole approach became more and more unfocused," says Barrera. "As it grew further away from the original idea, we all started losing interest in it. We didn't want to reinvent the whole wheel, but we definitely needed to do something different."
The fruit of their rebranding campaign culminates in the Barreracudas. The new group features the same players as the Hiss' final lineup with the addition of guitarist Warren Bailey (Beat Beat Beat, Gentleman Jesse) but takes a back-to-basics approach.

Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
