Harmsway is an alternative rock band from San Antonio, Texas. The group began in 2003 with just four friends jamming out to rock songs in a warehouse. The informal jam sessions morphed into parties that grew larger and larger. It soon became apparent that they had actually started a band and had earned fans before they ever took the stage. During those early days Harmsway was a cover band and played many clubs throughout San Antonio. Eventually the band transitioned to playing a mix of covers and originals and now the focus is on originals. Members are Rob, lead vocals, Mark M, lead guitar and background vocals, John, bass and background vocals and Mark G, drums and background vocals.
In 2005 the band went to Austin’s Mediatech Institute to record three original songs. Later they finished up the rest of the songs at 6th Street Studios in San Antonio. A full length album is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year and the band has already shot a professionally produced video for a song called Beautiful War. This is a song that is especially meaningful to the band because it is about the anguish and inner conflict that soldiers feel in battle.
