50 Lovely Band Members - Day 13: Shaant Hacikyan

I was lucky enough to meet Shaant at their show in New York City in early June this year. The 13 year old inside me was crying. My 19 year old self was also visibly excited. Shaant’s actually a really rad dude. Super nice, really cares about his fans, awesome stage presence, and goddamn that bone structure. You can’t deny Shaant is a talented vocalist and writer. He has the ability to put on a really good show and connect with an audience. An added bonus is I couldn’t see a trace of the douchieness he was sporting circa Warped tour mid 2000s.
