We asked Chris Scheckler, engineer of the platform to explain what X Stream is all about and this is what he had to say:

“It’s about the greed that exists within corporations, specifically venture capitalists, and it has deep personal meaning,” says Bossfight guitarist David Settimi of the band’s new single “Green.” Settimi spent nearly 20 years working for Guitar Center, first as a front line accessory salesperson before rising to vice president of sales; then the company was bought out in 2007 by Bain Capital for 1.9 billion.
Bossfight—Daze of Gray
There’s something to be said for gathering up your best songs, going into a studio and capturing them well. That’s what Bossfight has done on Daze of Gray, an 11-track collection of melodic punk rock that’s immaculately recorded. (P.O.D.’s Marcos Curiel produced it, by the way.)
