As I Said Before / Bio

Starting in 2008 As I Said Before has been tearing up the scene with it's nasty breakdowns, catchy music and outstanding stage performance. The band started in Jackson, MI and made it's way to Grand Rapids, MI. Since the beginning members have come and gone but the band still lives on to this day.

2010 is when the band really started to take over their town of Grand Rapids! Their journey and first show ever was in the Q106 battle of the bands! The band actually advance to the semi-finals in which were their first 3 shows ever played. Shortly following this event they were asked to play The Carnival of Chaos presents: A Nightmare Before Christmas with popular band Mushroomhead and many other bands from around Michigan.

In 2011 the band took a break so members could finish schooling and other members ventured into new paths that occured in their lives. 8 months later the band came back together but lost their original bassist Jake Wellman right before they decided to go into studio to record their demo. As I Said Before played without a bassist for the a couple of months until their savior and current bass player Alyssa Roath asked to try out for the band. Never playing any sort of guitar/bass the band was nervous but they proceeded to give her a shot and she blew them away!

Former singer Paul Scheer left the band in 2013 to pursue his own personal dreams. AISB picked up their 2 new vocalists Jon Rodriguez and Brad Hayes in December of 2013. Since then they have tore up The Carnival of Chaos with Wayne Static, It Lies Within, Blue Felix and many many more.
