RELATED / RECENT VIDEOS

HOLD ME WHO?

Hold Me Hostage is the brainchild of Christopher Thomas, a renowned musician, webcast producer, philanthropist, and talent buyer in Denver’s music scene, featuring Patrick Searcy and Jace Hill on guitar, Bryan Stacks on bass and keys, and James Opiteck on drums. The band’s name is derived from an inside joke with former bandmates when they would tell each other, “Don’t hold the band hostage!” while resolving creative differences.

With musical influences ranging from Nine Inch Nails to The Beatles, Hold Me Hostage manifests as hard-edged creativity elegantly wrapped in Weltschmerz-tinged optimism. Deep, resonating bass lines lay the foundation for Christopher’s powerfully dark, heavy vocals, which are inspired by singers like Trent Reznor, Maynard Keenan, and Corey Taylor and are often compared to Mike Patton’s unconventional and innovative sound.
