Calling Out West / Press

“Reinvention has come relatively quickly for the members of Calling Out West. In 2009, the trio of guitarist Max Comer, bassist Cody Vinton and vocalist/drummer Jake Vinton expanded the band then known as the Side Project, adding guitarist Mike Anderson and drummer Zach Armijo. Starting with 2010's eleven-song release Short Stories, the newly branded Calling Out West set about broadening its sound, shifting from more melodic balladry to heavier, guitar-laden pop rock. We spoke with Armijo about the changes in the band's musical approach and its upcoming release, the four-track EP Apollo, recorded at the Blasting Room.”

“A day of coming together and setting aside petty differences is important, said Zach Armijo, a Columbine senior whose band, Calling Out West, played during the rally. “I like the unity,” Armijo said. A Columbine student who helped organize the event for the past two years said making A Day Without Hate a Jeffco-wide celebration has been a positive experience.”
