What are the Shinys up to?

It’s been 3 years since “III” came out and since then, STG has been busy on tour and rocking our minds with their music. It’s been a while since we’ve seen the band together so I bet you’re wondering what they’ve been up to.

Carah Faye

After touring with STG, Carah has been busy making music and being awesome. She, of course, is still focusing on living a straight edge lifestyle. She recently announced her first solo album and is currently in the studio working on it.

Jeremy Dawson

Currently, Jeremy has also been busy with music. He formed the “funeral pop” band MXMS (Me and My Shadow) and teamed up with vocalist Ariel Levitan. They made their own art show titled “Self” in New York City during New York Fashion Week and now are currently touring the country and making more music. Jeremy has also stated that he would also like his band to score films and are also currently scoring underground shorts.

You can listen their single “omg” here.

Mikey Martin

Mikey has also been working on music of his own since ending the III tour. Mikey has joined the band “Glass Family” but had to leave the band because it “just didn’t work out”. He has instead joined the band “Phantom Machines” and is currently working on his music. He and his wife, Leila, have also recently announced that they are now soon to be parents! (Congrats, guys!)

Chad Petree

If you’ve been a long time fan of STG, you’d know Chad is a very private man with no attachments to social media whatsoever. We should fear Chad.

Update: Thanks to a tip, we’ve found out that Chad has been also working on music of his own. Chad has released music under the name of “Ronnie Richards”. We should still fear Chad because he’s so secretive.

Listen to his new song, “My Kind of Lady”, here.

One of the best-filmed live Shiny videos out there, enjoy guys. Thanks to ALTARTV for showing Shiny’s some love.


A rare sight to see: last December Carah was sick during both Oklahoma shows. Chad stepped in and sang Major Tom. Like a boss, he nailed the high notes!

Thanks to ChelsaeMay27 for the video!
