Make Me Famous Biography
Make Me Famous was a Ukrainian metalcore band formed in 2009 and was based in the city of Donetsk. They were founded by lead guitarist and co-vocalist Denis Shaforostov, who gained popularity through his YouTube channel "above92". He then recruited bassist Sergei Hohlov to create original music. These two then recruited Igor Yastrebov on guitar because Shaforostov sought to use 3–4 songs written completely by Yastrebov and Shaforostov's previous band that they played in together. Soon after, Serj Kravchenko, the former vocalist of Pictures Inside Me, joined the band on lead vocals. Jace Thomas was later recruited to play drums, respectively. In early 2011, the band released their first EP entitled Keep This in Your Music Player. The EP features the songs "Make It Precious", "I Am A Traitor. No One Does Care" and "Once You Killed a Cow, You Gotta Make a Burger", all of which were included on the band's debut record. The three songs were not re-recorded for the debut album, instead the exact versions on this EP were included onto the album. Drummer Jace Thomas was kicked out of the band in 2011 because he allegedly leaked instrumentals of the band's music. He was replaced by former Rose Funeral drummer Dusty Boles. In 2013 the band broke up due to difficulties between Shaforostov and the rest of the band. Make Me Famous were dropped from Sumerian and the band held one final tour without Shaforostov before disestablishing. The remaining members then formed Oceans Red while Shaforostov formed the band Down & Dirty.
