Aranda is a rock band from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The band is composed of Dameon and Gabe Aranda.
Dameon and Gabe Aranda have been creating music since an early age. The band became Aranda in 2001 after years of playing locally in Oklahoma City with various groups under various names such as "Image" and "Freewill" in the 1990's. Original drummer Armando Lopez left the band in 2003 to join the band No Justice. Mike Walker joined the band to record "The 405 Sessions" in 2004 and became a permanent member when the band signed to Astonish records in 2006. The band's first full length record, Aranda, was released on April 22, 2008. The first single, "Still in the Dark", peaked at No. 31 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. Aranda has toured with bands like The All-American Rejects, Buckcherry, Sevendust, Anew Revolution, Since October, Edisun, Saliva, Shinedown, Puddle of Mudd, Theory of a Deadman, Black Stone Cherry and Tantric. They also were on tour with Halestorm, Adelitas Way, 3 Doors Down, and Daughtry. It was announced on February 22, 2010 that Aranda will be a part of Rocklahoma 2010 in Pryor, Oklahoma. They were nominated in 2012 for a RadioContraband Rock Radio Award in 2012 for Indie Artist of the Year.
Aranda announced via Facebook their new album will be called "Stop the World", and on July 1, 2011, they released the first single entitled "Undone". On January 31, 2012, their new album "Stop the World" was released on iTunes. The CD was produced by Grammy Award nominated producer Johnny K, and has 10 songs, including their first single "Undone". Aranda became signed to Wind-Up Records in mid-2012.
"Whyyawannabringmedown" was used as official theme for WWE's PPV The Bash, and later, recorded by Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson.
"All I Ever Wanted" was also recorded by Kelly Clarkson for her fourth record, which was named after the song, and is the fourth single from the album.
