With a rare aptitude for combining the best aspects of Classic Rock, Hair-Metal, and Grunge, independent recording artists MODENA offer a professional, yet edgy, sound for fans of Modern Hard Rock. The band has spent over 6 years perfecting their craft. Paying necessary dues by performing countless live shows, shamelessly self promoting and networking with other bands, all while productively obsessing over their music.
Imagine tasteful guitar solos that scream with emotion. Big vocal harmonies that get stuck in your head for days. And a constant barrage of sleek bass lines, heavy riffs, and thunderous drums that will make your heart groove. Their songs have been featured on regional FM radio as well as many internet radio stations including Pandora.
Following the success of two previous releases, the 'Second Time Around EP', and its predecessor, the 'Modena EP', the band decided to launch a KICKSTARTER campaign with one goal in mind: To record with multi-platinum selling producer Jim Wirt (INCUBUS, Hoobastank, Fiona Apple, Live). They exceeded their goal by several hundred dollars, donated by loyal 'Modenians' who couldn't wait to hear the new tracks. The boys spent two weeks secluded with Jim in Cleveland, Ohio and they quickly realized his passion for finding the right sound for them was contagious.
The result? A record they are proud to call their first full-length release...LEVERAGE. Released on September 17, 2013 to rave reviews by fans and critics alike.
Now they're ready to hit the road. Ready to hit the social networks. Read to show the world that their outstanding drive, persistence, and loyal fan base can make a difference in today's overcrowded, and over-pirated, music industry.
MODENA is a force to be reckoned with. The NC quartet stands poised at the forefront of a new generation of bands. One of self-sustaining musicians, free from the chains of greedy major labels. A community of talent that dreams of a simpler time for music. But most of all, a group of music lovers that come together to hurl Rock and Roll back atop the artistic tier!
