Carving Out Fiction / Bio

Carving Out Fiction "2014 Artist of the Year and Single of the Year, 2013 Artist of the year and Best Hard Rock Band, 2012 Artist of the Year and Album of the Year, and 2011 Best new band and Album of the year winner for the 717 Music Awards"

An original rock band hailing from York, Pennsylvania, Carving Out Fiction has been brewing for several years. Initially an outlet for drummer/multi-instrumentalist Joe Coria to release solo albums, the band became a four piece in May 2010. The band has since been building up steam in the York, Harrisburg, and Lancaster music scene. The band became an instant crowd favorite. At their second show, they sold over 150 tickets, prompting the venue to produce a will call list. This show was the CD release party for their second CD, The Art In Havok. After only 8 shows, the band was asked to open for national band Jimmie's Chicken Shack at the Chameleon Club. They continued to be selected to support national acts such as Papa Roach, 10 Years (twice), Sick Puppies, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus(Twice), Saving Abel, The Art of Dying, Pop Evil, Jimmie's Chicken Shack (3 times), Thousand Foot Krutch, Hawthorne Heights, Bowling For Soup, Adema, Taproot, Nothing More, The Misfits, Love and Death(Ft Brian Head Welch of Korn), Sleep Wave, Eye Empire, Patent Pending, The Letter Black, The Dollyrots, The Last Place You Look, and Edisun. Carving Out Fiction also had offers with Fuel, Hinder, Trapt, My Darkest Day, Otherwise, Crossfade, Saliva, Everclear, Burn Halo, Kyng, Psychostick and Motograter. Carving Out Fiction has been award winners at the 717 Music Awards winning Artist of the Year and Single of the year in 2014, Artist of the Year and Best Hard Rock Band in 2013, Artist of the Year and Album of the Year in 2012, and Best New Band and Album of the Year in 2011. Their singles "Conversation's End" , "Oceans", "Trial of a Man", and "Violets turning violet" have all been featured on 105.7 The X, 101.5 Bob Rocks, and numerous internet radio stations. The band was featured as the 105.7 The X Under The Radar featured band of the week for the first week of April 2014. The band was also featured on 105.7 The X as the "Home Grown" band of the week on 04/15/11. The band also was featured in the York Dispatch Newspaper "Flipside".
After being compared to GlassJaw, Thrice, Thursday, Green Day, Incubus, Placebo, and Alkaline Trio, the band confirms that they like them, so that’s not too bad.
