Onward, Soldiers is an indie rock band from Wilmington, NC. Known for their high energy live performances, the current line-up includes: Sean Thomas Gerard (vocals, guitar, piano), Lincoln Morris (lead guitar, vocals), Jarett Dorman (Drums, Vocals) and Tripp Cox (Bass, Vocals). Onward has steadily toured the country over the last three years and has released two full length albums on Winoca Records.
Critically celebrated, 2010's "Ghosts In This Town" is a compelling blend of unadulterated rock and haunting prose. Written and recorded throughout 2009, "Ghosts" includes performances by a bevy of local ILM musicians.
Their second album, “Monsters”, released in February 2012, is a more refined version of the same raw yet melodic spirit Onward, Soldiers posses, and delivers the unexpected twists and turns of cleverly-crafted musicianship mixed with devilish style and endearing lyricism.
Growing interest presented the band with many opportunities including: festival showcases at SXSW, CMJ, Hopscotch, Bele Chere and 35 Denton among others, a compilation CD titled “Gasoline Rainbows” by Vagrant Records, and a feature on Nashville's Music City Roots. Actress Sophia Bush named Onward, Soldiers one of her favorite bands which led to a feature on One Tree Hill (Warner Brothers) with their first single 'Stick to your Guns', and an acoustic performance by STG for the song "Monsters" on the show in 2010. The band can also be seen on PBS's Sun Sessions, filmed at Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee.
