Stutterfly

From Wikipedia:
Stutterfly was a post-hardcore band created in 1998, originally named "Uncle Ed's Private Jet". In February 2007, the band changed their name to Secret and Whisper due to the replacement of their founding vocalist, and significant changes in their musical style.

What started as a hobby for four young men from Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, soon became a professional band for its four members: Chris Stickney (vocals), Jordan Chase (bass, vocals), Bradyn Byron (guitar, vocals), and Craig Langerud (drums). In 2003, Jason Ciolli (guitar) joined the band, in 2004 Ryan Loerke took over on drums. 2006 saw Stickney leave the band, to be later replaced by Charles Furney. The band has continued on to produce intense and energetic live shows.

Their melodic sound resonates with three-part vocals and harmonies, intense screaming, hard-hitting drums, and thick driving guitars. These, punctuated with transparent lyrics, form a sound distinct from other bands.

Stutterfly's demo, "Hollow", managed to sell over 3,000 copies at their shows alone. "Broken in Pieces", their first full-length album, was released in 2002 (to later be re-released on the bands' own label, The Elysien Project).

After reaching number one on mp3.com in their genre, Stutterfly maintained a top 10 position for over a year, and received almost 200,000 plays. With the help of Los Angeles based Freeze Management (The Used, Story of the Year, Goldfinger), Stutterfly inked a deal with Madonna's Maverick Records (Deftones, Alanis Morissette, etc.) in the summer of 2003, and later toured with fellow labelmates Story of the Year. Working with producer Ulrich Wild (Deftones, Taproot, Bleeding Through, Static-X) the band released "And We Are Bled of Color", which contained new versions of several songs from "Broken In Pieces...", on June 21, 2005. Two music videos were also produced for the songs "Gun In Hand" and "Fire Whispers."

After disappointing sales of "And We Are Bled of Color" Stutterfly was dropped from Maverick, with lead singer Chris Stickney leaving the band amicably soon after. Charles Furney (formerly of thebleedingalarm) joined as the new vocalist in August 2006.

With the bands style changing dramatically, they felt a new name was appropriate. It was announced via the band's MySpace page on February 6, 2007 that the band would be changing their name and on February 24, 2007 it was announced that their new name would be Secret and Whisper.

Note: In the movie House of Wax, in one scene where the group are in a car, you can hear on the radio Stutterfly's song Gun in Hand.
