From its inception, Restrayned’s mission was clear: create great hard rock music and put on amazing live shows.The band was formed in 2009 by guitarist/vocalists Johnny Rowland and Tony Musallam, soon to be joined by bassist Chris Ellis and drummer Mark Sprague.
Following the success of their self-titled ep released in December 2010, the band started working on their first full length album. The result is A DARK NEW DAY. The CD features the hits “Breaking Down”, “Some Will Be Saved”, “Remember” and more. Restrayned’s sound has been described as “Classic Modern”, combining elements of both classic and modern rock to create their sound. They have the heavy guitar riffs of Black Label Society mixed with the vocal melodies and harmonies of Dokken and Queensryche. The band is currently in the studio working on songs for their next CD which is scheduled for a Summer 2015 release.
They have supported bands like Trapt, Y&T, Lynch Mob, Loudness, Skid Row, Black Star Riders (Thin Lizzy), Metal Church, and Faster Pussycat. The new full length CD "A Dark New Day" is currently available on iTunes and Amazon.com and has recently been named SRRocks.com's "ALBUM OF THE YEAR" for 2012.
Their Song "Remember" (from the 2010 self-titled 5 song EP) was named "2011 Song of the Year" at SRRocks.com.
