Everyone seems to be more and more impressed by Truth Before Treason, a 7-year band, who has recently made some big changes and have been building a buzz around the Eau Claire area.
They've been turning heads since the release of their long-awaited debut album, The Rise and Fall of a Broken Empire. The band's sound fuses elements of brutal metal into a radio-friendly style. Some people compare their sound to Killswitch Engage or Trivium, but the unique blend of extreme to catchy sets them apart from every other band.
Each member has a distinct passion and drive to perform that is undeniable.
Chris - (Lead Vocals/Lead Guitar) Picked up a guitar one day in high school and taught himself how to play. He has since blown people away with his technique and ability to play difficult solos, even while singing.
Jack Shaw - (Rhythm Guitar) Original creator of the band, Jack brings selfless dedication and talent to the band. He's the guy that's running around stage demanding the audience's attention and bringing the energy level sky-high.
Ben Ulwelling - (Bass) Only picked up a bass for the first time when the band knew they needed a bass player. He was a natural and now puts everything into playing that bass, even if it means playing just days after having carpal tunnel surgery or bleeding at his fingertips.
Braden - (Drums) Only recently becoming part of the band, he stuns everyone with his high energy on stage and his ability to play fast, brutal, and technical beats. Don't miss him during his main show at the end of "Crashes Down".
