    Like A Storm signal a new horizon for hard rock. Brothers Chris, Matt, and Kent Brooks blast, bruise, and bludgeon with rock 'n' roll that's meant to be blared loud and live. In 2005, Chris, Matt, and Kent embarked for North America from their native New Zealand to take their music to the world. Finding a home base in Vancouver and quickly developing a strong local following, the band caught the ear of multi-platinum producer/mixer/engineer Mike Plotnikoff (Three Days Grace/Seether/Papa Roach/Buckcherry). With Plotnikoff and his producing partner Igor Khoroshev at the helm, Like A Storm recorded their 2009 offering, "The End of The Beginning" in Los Angeles, CA. While touring in support of their debut with powerhouse acts such as Alter Bridge, Shinedown, Creed, Staind, Puddle of Mudd, Drowning Pool, Helmet and Skillet, Like A Storm proved themselves a veritable sonic force of nature on stage. Selling over 3000 CDs in their first 3 weeks of touring, the overwhelming response from crowds saw their record enter the Billboard New Artist Charts at #61 from tour sales alone. The band and their music was also well received by their peers. Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge/Creed) and Brent Smith (Shinedown) took Like A Storm out on tour after hearing their music, and Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy described them in a recent interview as "total pros with great songs and great attitudes" going on to say, "...those guys are gonna do well". Wes Scantlin from Puddle of Mudd even invited Chris up on stage to sing a cover of ACDC's "TNT" on their most recent tour together. "Our sound really evolved out on the road", says Chris. "We kept the heavy riffs and melodies, but added this new live aggression. After two years of playing every night, we really wanted to capture the energy of our live show in the studio. The bands we toured with played like their lives depended on it, and that really inspired us." With this new energy and inspiration, the band entered the studio in early 2011 to cut and co-produce four new tracks: "Never Surrender," "New Life," "One Step From Hell," and "What's Wrong With Me (Is You)." "Never Surrender," mixed by Randy Staub (Metallica, Alice in Chains) demonstrates the band's aggressive sound - exploding out of the gate with a jackhammer riff and an incendiary solo break. "That song means so much to us," Chris reveals. "It's probably the most personal track we've written. We moved here from the other side of the world to do this, and along the way you come up against so many things that seem impossible. We wrote the song about never giving up, always believing in yourself, and doing whatever it takes to get where you want to be." The fans will no doubt respond to the message, just like they did to the band's first single, "Chemical Infatuation", which charted at #43 on U.S Active Rock Radio. Since hitting the road in 2009, Like A Storm has built a diehard following everywhere. "We've been blown away by how loyal and supportive our fans are," says Chris, "They've become our family out on the road. Its been incredible seeing so many people at the shows with Like A Storm tattoos, and its awesome having such a personal relationship with them."
