Our Last Night
By standard definition the word "evolution" means a process of change in a certain direction. In life, people, cities, nature, art and music among other things go through their own evolutionary cycles, constantly moving forward and continually changing. New Hampshire based melodic-metal outfit Our Last Night has experienced their own such growth over the past several years. Through experience, methodically honing their craft and long arduous touring, Our Last Night has emerged matured and seasoned with their self-defining sophomore album 'We Will All Evolve.'
To understand their development you have to go back a few years. Our Last Night was conceived outside the conventional scene in the sleepy town of Hollis, New Hampshire on the outskirts of Boston in 2004. After a recording an EP later that year, the band cemented its current lineup in 2006 with brothers Matt Wentworth (guitar/vocals) and a then sixteen year old prodigious growler Trevor Wentworth (vocals), Colin Perry (guitar), Alex "Woody" Woodrow (bass) and Tim Molloy (drums). Individuality and shear skill led Epitaph Records owner and president Brett Gurewitz to sign the band in 2007 and release their debut full-length album, 'The Ghost Among Us,' in 2008.
Since 2008, Our Last Night has built a core army of fans. Not through flashy persona, fame fueled online gossip or monotonous scene imagery, but through their music and touring alone. Letting the music speak for itself has helped the band transcend boundaries and created limitless room for growth.
Our Last Night entered the studio in late 2009 with producer Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Versa Emerge) to record 'We Will All Evolve'. After a month long recording session and additional mixing by David Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin, Paramore, Set Your Goals) the album was completed and ready for release in May 2010.
Exploding with depth and maturity, 'We Will All Evolve' blends Trevor's harsh, aged-to-perfection growls perfectly with Matt's melodious, calming vocals over his and Colin's progressive, breakneck-metal driven guitars, Woody's heavy hitting bass and Tim's pummeling drums. Ripping through thirty-seven plus minutes of meticulously written melodic mayhem with tracks like the furious first single, "Elephants," the indisputably catchy "The Air I Breath," and the bouncy pop-metal hybrid "Into the Future," Our Last Night break out of their cocoon riff by riff, chorus by chorus rising above the limits of a so called scene.
With plans to tour in support of the new album throughout 2010 including dates on the Vans Warped Tour, Our Last Night's evolution continues as the band feeds off of experience and the incessant need to create and grow.
I The Mighty
"We don't want people to just listen to our music on a surface level. We want people to dive into the songs and dissect them and to really feel them," states Brent Walsh, vocalist for the San Francisco Bay Area band known as I the Mighty.
I the Mighty will release Karma Never Sleeps - their new EP and Equal Vision Records debut – on March 27, 2012. "Our new material is pretty different from our previous releases. Karma Never Sleeps is a lot heavier, a bit darker, and has a moodier ambient," explains bassist Chris Hinkley.
The ambitious and captivating EP, which was produced by Erik Ron [Panic! At The Disco, VersaEmerge, Foxy Shazam], features six sweeping tracks filled with soaring vocals, catchy hooks, charging guitars and explosive instrumentations that make for a mesmerizing whirlwind of cinematic soundscapes.
Karma Never Sleeps envelops the listener into dramatic, dreamlike imagery of tales of political corruption, desperation and despair, and even words of cautionary counseling for the young and reckless. Lyrically infused with powerful and poignant storylines, some tracks take inspiration directly from Walsh's life experiences, while others are written as if they were dreams illuminated onto a screen through a stream of imagination. Seamlessly woven throughout each track is the ubiquitous theme of Karma.
Since their 2007 inception, I the Mighty has melded together effortlessly and has already compiled an impressive following of support on the west coast, seeing regular rotation on local modern rock station Live 105 and sharing stages with the likes of Hawthorne Heights, There For Tomorrow, Deftones and more.
"In a sense, heading into the recording together was really a discovery of what our band would become," explains guitarist Ian Pedigo. "The process was very organic. The first three songs actually stemmed from jam sessions we had while practicing our old sets for live shows."
I the Mighty has undoubtedly achieved their goal of creating bright, bold and memorable music on the new EP but certainly don't plan on slowing down anytime soon. Blake Dahlinger (drums) expounds, "At this point, there isn't one singular goal that would satisfy what we aim to do. We want to tour the world. We want to continuously put out records that will hopefully mean a lot to us as well as many people. We want to put our own stamp on the music scene by developing our own sound. We want to continuously set and reach goals throughout our career so that we can better ourselves as musicians and people."
Walsh concludes, "And the thing we hope for most…is that our music means something to someone, the way that other artists have meant so much to us in our lives."
Don Broco are a British rock band formed in Bedford, England in 2008. The band consists of Rob Damiani, Simon Delaney, Tom Doyle and Matt Donnelly.
