There is nothing wrong with your senses. Do not attempt to adjust your mind. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can distort your image, make it flutter. We can change your focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity.Sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your senses. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to the outer consciousness. We. Are. EMERGENT.
Thira is Industrial Groove Metal. They will show you the meaning of these words. This is change and passion. This is melody and impact. Play live or die. Hungry, heavy and determined to make you move.
Welcome to Thira.
Whither the Tide
Whither the Tide is a 3-piece Industrial-Rock band from Saint Paul, Minnesota.
Whither the Tide began in 2006 when Jeremy Montoya began tracking demos with a more aggressive and synth driven sound. The songwriting in Whither the Tide was different from Montoya's usual bands in that the songs had a wider scope of sound, ranging from Industrial Metal to Synth-Pop influenced Rock. There were initially 6 songs demoed by Montoya, with all of them sounding distinctly different from any of his other bands at the time.
It wasn't until 2008 when Montoya contacted former band mate and long-time friend Sean Hill that Whither the Tide became what is today. Montoya wished to perform the group of songs he had written live and Asked Sean Hill if he was interested in starting a new band. Hill moved from Arizona to Minnesota to begin working with Montoya in arranging and preparing songs for live performance. By the summer of 2008 they had 7 songs which they tested out in several clubs with long-time friend and former band mate John Nelson on drums. Upon receiving a great response the band went back to writing and rehearsing in preparation to play longer sets and more concerts.
The band spent the majority of 2009 playing smaller shows outside of the Twin Cities to get a feel for their new sound in live settings and refining what needed to be. It was in 2010 that Whither the Tide was confident in their now 12 song set that they began playing frequently in the Twin Cities. By August of 2010 the band had begun to build a substantial following by playing with many popular local acts and opening for several national touring acts and had played many of the clubs in the Twin Cities including the legendary 1st Avenue main room. However John Nelson, their drummer at the time, had difficulty in keeping up with the bands schedule and amicably left the band in September of 2010.
This was far from the end for Whither the Tide. Having gained the attention of several promoters, Whither the Tide was asked to open for Industrial Rock legends Filter 3 weeks before the show. Having no drummer, Montoya accepted the opening slot and then turned to his friend and former band mate Rich Zasada of Buried by Hope and Skywind. Rich accepted to join the band for the time being and learned the band's entire set in 2 weeks of rehearsal. The band played a powerful set and won the crowd over, even impressing Filter themselves. Zasada joined the band as a permanent member following the show. Whither the Tide then went on to play many more shows around the Twin Cities.
The band finished the 12 song album produced and enginnered by Wally J of Pacific Underground Records iin April of 2012 With the album available late June at performances and July for online purchase.
