AsianWeek: "Rock Out for S.F. Hep B Free Campaign"

By: Peter J. Swing

Calisus, an emerging alternative rock band from Washington, D.C., recently agreed to donate concert proceeds to the S.F. Hep B Free campaign.

Formed in 2005, Calisus includes Chris Nyack on lead vocals and keyboard, Patrick Koch on lead guitar and backing vocals, Kyle Bucklew on drums, and Zach Constable on bass and backing vocals. Their newest album which they are on tour promoting, A New State of Normal, was mastered by Masterdisk's senior mastering engineer Howie Weinberg, who has worked with alternative bands like Soundgarden, Oasis, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and the Killers.

Calisus sets itself apart from most rock bands with its philanthropic intentions: At every concert, the band supports charitable organizations through public awareness or fund raising.

"We are looking forward to a number of great things during our first tour in California," Koch said during a phone interview. "One of them is our desire to raise awareness for hepatitis B."
