Now part of Iron Gate Records, Split Persona is led by the vision of Zander Hoschak and the intensely ambitious spirit of the independent rock scene. The Reno based hard rockers got off to such a blazing start in 2019 and early 2020 that literally only a pandemic had the power to halt their momentum. For a group that formed by accident, they bring a ton of edgy, eclectic sonic energies to the indie rock world – balancing explosive, hard hitting guitar stabs and propulsive drum parts with memorable melodies, catchy hooks and the singer’s emotionally compelling but often coolly abstract lyrics. Most recently, Split Persona collaborated with 3 Doors Down on the single “I Need More” released on March 11th, 2022. Oh did we mention these guys put on a Kick Ass live performance that is sure to entertain everyone in front of them.
