Blending aspects from many different genres of music, the hard rock band Impending Lies is set out to put their unique stamp on the music industry. Based out of the iconic rock and roll city of Cleveland, Ohio, Impending Lies has begun to receive both national and international attention from fans and music professionals alike. The band is known for their chest pounding rhythms, melodic hooks, and high energy stage performances.
Impending Lies officially originated when two old friends reconnected. When guitarist James Skrtich posted a few rough demos online, he caught the attention of vocalist and old friend Matt Hayes. The two, along with drummer Adam Markov, recorded an unnamed five-song EP that began to receive local and regional admiration. Soon after, the band members wanted to add a new dynamic to the group, and enlisted the services of Youngstown, Ohio native guitarist/vocalist Davo Billock. With the nucleus of the group now complete, Impending Lies entered the studio in late 2012 to record their first full-length album, “Until the Lights Burn Out.” While finishing the final stages of the albam, IL was invited to share the stage with over 20 national acts on the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. Shortly thereafter, drummer and longtime friend Adam Markov announced that he would sadly be parting ways with the band. That left Matt, James and Davo to find the two final pieces of their puzzle. This void would be quickly filled by bassist Noll Hartman and drummer Roger Lewis, both long time friends and Youngstown natives.
After releasing their debut album in March 2013, Impending Lies has hit the pavement to promote their debut record. Impending Lies has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many notable acts. Among those acts are Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind, P.O.D., Eye Empire, Adelitas Way, Thousand Foot Krutch, 3 Years Hollow, 12 Stones, Digital Summer, Nonpoint, and many more. Playing shows spanning across the northeastern United States, IL has set their sights not only on the rest of the US, but the rest of the world as well.
