    "I have seen Half Hour Shower Fill Buds on Broadway to capacity, The dance floor so full that people were dancing between the tables, The sound of a room full of people yelling and cheering for "one more song" at the end of the night, Drinks bouncing on tables from the energy of the dances, This band is truley awesome..."

    Half Hour Shower - Melding music into art, this band flows from one bone crushing hit to the next blending musicianship with expression and creating a stadium experience that will leave you pumping your fist after the smoke has cleared.

Bio: Despite The Reverence was formed by Johnny Fast (guitars) and Tom Liska (vocalist) in 2011. After performing in various hard rock and cover bands the two decided to set out on an original project. With the acquisition of drummer, Brad Zimmer, and bassist, Jordan Poelzer they soon began writing me...See Full Bio

Twitter_icon_for_status: Good session with DTR's Tom Liska writing lyrics and guitar parts last night! Gonna be another great album when we're done!


“Despite the Reverence offers killer riffs and wildly powerful guitar parts. The metal 4-some from up North blasts the speakers with in-your-face tracks such as "The Hunger" and "We Are Shadow", two offerings from their hard rockin' 2nd self-titled Cd. Down a bit deeper we find a track called "Sense Of Balance", perhaps the best of the bunch with its intensely rich orchestration and melodic guitar work hit out of the park!”

Q: Where can I locate the lyrics of these songs and how did you come about the Name of your band?

A: Hey, you can check out some of our lyrics on Reverbnation by each song on the list. We are still in the process of adding lyrics and will get this done soon for you. About half of the songs should be added. Picking a band name is the hardest thing and we had it narrowed to 3 names and 2 were taken! We like Despite The Reverence because the content and style of our music is often heavy and solemn but we like to have a good time with it and are pretty relaxed guys overall. Thanks for the questions and keep listening, Despite The Reverence
