Inspired by the sounds of modern New York City Post Punk, Aways Away was formed in 2009 by Evan de Augustinis. With a desire to combine melodic vocal elements with a driving rock sound, Evan placed an ad for a lead guitarist on Craigslist, which was answered by Joe Micalizzi. They worked out a dueling guitar sound and early incarnations of Evan's songs began to take on a new life. In need of a drummer, Joe met Michael Lyon at a party and recruited him for an audition. Mike's dynamic drumming was a great addition to their layered, textured, guitar sound. The band began to incorporate the sounds of NYC Pre-Punk bands into their songs. When it became difficult to find a bassist who fit in with the band's new direction, Evan called his friend Silvano Dragone, who agreed to join the band over a cup of Cappuccino and Cannolli.
