Race Against Space
RIYL: Beaver Brown Band
Influences: Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Beaver Brown Band
The roots of Race Against Space are in Asbury Park New Jersey’s music scene. After two New Jersey natives met through a mutual friend in San Diego in 2004, guitarist Peter C. Neusch (the Prisoner) and drummer David Ward (Rag Stew, Deep End) began collaborating and enlisted the vocals of David’s old bandmate Jason Helms (Rag Stew, Deep End).
San Diego native Russ Clark (Zero Sum, Redivider) would later round out the lineup on bass. The band released their Race Against Space EP in 2010.
