"Passion, liberty, and expression" serves as the foundation of the band, explained Jace Frenzy: vocalist and songwriter for We The Machine. "Hopefully we can connect with our fans and inspire them to be themselves, whomever that may be. The whole concept of We The Machine is not to preach about a centralized message, but to encourage people not to be afraid of pursuing their beliefs, however popular or unpopular they may be."
These words, spoken by Frenzy in 2012, have proved to be the launching pad for the Boston-based band. Frenzy states, "There are a lot of things which sculpt our views and opinions; but passion is undeniable. We should embrace these ideas without fear of repercussion."
"Our message remains unchanged. We are passionate about life and our upcoming record definitely shows that to the fullest" said Frenzy about the bands forthcoming untitled album. "I think our fans will hear a slightly similar musical direction with the same lyrical intensity."
The Boston quintet is readying to release their second EP in Spring of 2014 following their highly anticipated debut EP, "Dissenter", which was released in North America in July 2013. "We the Machine is a band that not many people have heard of, but even so, don’t sleep on this band. I can imagine them getting huge in the next couple of years if they keep this sound going." stated AbsolutePunk.net in their album review scoring an 85%.
Previously, the band released a preorder bonus cover track, remaking Demi Lovato's "Give Your Heart A Break" to rave reviews an instant viral recognition from various notable media outlets like Disney and Under The Gun; "...We The Machine have definitely given us a fun sampler of their sound with this cover." cited the popular music review site.
They have since generated over 175,000 unique plays and downloads across various platforms including YouTube, Facebook, and iTunes.
We The Machine also finished in first place [top 20 nation-wide] in the 2013 Ernie Ball Warped Tour voting, which earned them a slot at the Boston date alongside bands like Crown The Empire, We Came As Romans, Memphis May Fire, I See Stars, August Burns Red, Sleeping With Sirens, The Used and many more.
Musically and lyrically, We The Machine does not restrict themselves. "These songs are about life, and all the feelings, thoughts, and emotions that play a part of it", says Frenzy. Listening to songs like "The Fallen", there are undoubted overtones of Faith, prosperity, and compassion. While "Mirrors" paints the story of an estranged family. Other topics of love, regret, optimism, and loss, are explored eloquently through the vocals, while heavy rhythms, impassioned screams, and sing-along choruses set the stage for the bands' overall sound.
"We want kids to come see us live and feel right on stage with us. Our fans are what really makes us want to do what we do", says Frenzy. "Enjoy the music for what it is, and take from it what means most to you. If we can connect with our fans on that level, it makes it all worth while."
