The band Aeris is the convergence of 5 superb musicians who are from various areas around metro Detroit. They assembled to form a group that defines rock in a new way. Since the beginning, the members have worked together as a team to compose the distinctive and cutting edge sounds of Aeris. The band members create songs by combining elements of post hardcore, alternative, metal, and mainstream rock. During their first year together, Aeris accomplished a lot. Along with a busy performance schedule, Aeris also recorded their first 5 song EP. The sound is so unique and original that a prominent recording studio in Detroit referred to Aeris music as a new genre called "Popcore".
