Formed in 2001, Boise-based rock band Abrupt Edge has enjoyed a range of experiences that have taken them from frat house parties to arena shows with well known national bands. From humble beginnings as a bar band, Abrupt Edge persisted through a few lineup changes and thanks to the hard work and dedication of original members Cliff Miller and Beau Kolar, Abrupt Edge has experienced a great deal of local and regional success. With the addition of Grant Webb on bass and Brendan Nickel on guitar, the band has been in full swing the last two years earning the opportunity to play with several national acts and on music festivals such as Warped Tour and X Fest. Since performing at X Fest in August of 2008, Abrupt Edge has performed in 5 states, 20 cities, and over 30 different venues, including 5 different festivals. They've also earned the opportunity to share the stage with countless national acts including: Chevelle, Three Days Grace, Seether, Sick Puppies, Shinedown, Candlebox, Theory Of A Deadman, Hurt, In this Moment, Red, Saving Abel, Ten Years, Puddle of Mudd, Earshot, Egypt Central, Hawthorne Heights, Buck Cherry, The Exies, Smile Empty Soul, Alien Ant Farm, City Sleeps, Royal Bliss, Seven Mary Three, and Janus. In the summer of 2009 Abrupt Edge released a new full length cd entitled "Goodbye Till Then" which is in regular rotation on several regional radio stations.
All of these experiences, along with a lot of hard work and fun go into the music we create. Our music is driven by live energy and our lyrics are inspired by life's experiences. From relationships in “Let Me Go”, or “As Fake As It Gets” to dealing with death in “Goodbye Till Then”. Head bobbing verses and sing-along choruses along with a killer live show bring our songs to life. We enjoy writing, recording, and performing music, and connecting with our fans. As we continue to branch out regionally, we look forward to sharing our love of music with you. See you at the shows!!
