From Athens We Fled / Bio

From Athens We Fled is a 4 piece metalcore/post hardcore band hailing from Phoenix, AZ.
Check out their debut album Ctrl Alt Kill on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and CD Baby.

FAWF aims to breath new life into the stale AZ metal scene that has become saturated with "the chugga chugga breakdown syndrome."

With roots firmly planted in metalcore, they bring technical riffing coupled with catchy choruses. A unique blending of versatile vocals and instrumental work help to differentiate them from the multitude of other core bands.

Leading the group with his crushing screams and powerful cleans, Mike Davis incites tremendous energy into the audience. Taking influence from indie rock all the way to deathcore his varied vocal styles challenge the standard notions of metal singing.

Complementing this unique style is Jacob Burke on guitar/programming/backing vocals, enhancing the vocal melodies with his blend of metal riffing, punk chording and soaring progressive rock leads.

Bass Guitar is dominated by our resident Bastard, Justin X. Rivera.
X is a bassist that fully understands what he must do to deliver crushing yet melodic bass lines. Having primarily worked with Alternative, hardcore, Classic Metal and Punk Rock bands, he knows how to bring the power his instrument and our song writing prowess were truly meant to deliver.

Tying From Athens We Fleds' sound together is Josh on drums. In all actuality he isn't that good. If we had to classify his playing style it would be 'horrible'. We believe his influences are a blender, a lawnmower, or anything that creates obnoxious noise thats not in time. He is pretty terrible, but what he lacks in musical talent he makes up for in sex appeal and ethnic diversity.

From Athens We Fled pushes relentlessly onward, perpetually striving to provide more than a show for its' audience. Each performance is to be an experience not soon forgotten by their fans.
