ROMANCE & REBELLION
The pop rock-quintet from Los Angeles have gotten quite a good start in their career and have a bright future ahead of them.
They quickly got jumped to the leaderboard in the Battle Of The Bands competition for Vans Warped Tour, gaining thousands of points in a matter of weeks. They've had performances at many shows and festivals such as Emo Nite and South By South West. Here's the part that might be shocking: they achieved all of this after only releasing one EP.
The self-titled debut came out back in 2016. Within the several months since its release, the band have certainly achieved things that they may not have expected to happen. Although all these opportunities happened relatively quickly, they didn't happen overnight. Luck was a part of this journey, but it wasn't the only thing that the band needed to reach these milestones in their career, especially so early on.
"Obviously any accomplishment feels good. Obviously some feel better than others. Every accomplishment has been hard fought and well deserved. The most precious things in this life take time and energy to get. This is no different," says vocalist David LaViola.
What will the band do going forward?
"We will continue to gain attention and fans, play better shows and increase exposure, and overall continue to grow together as a brand and a band so that someday we can be the leading band/bandom for a new generation of fans," LaViola says confidently about the band's future.
"I'm sure my answer will change when we receive our first Grammy," he jokes.
With the amount of passion, confidence and hard work these guys put in to what they do, things like that could happen.
