Throwing Gravity / Press

“Throwing Gravity just finished their first album. For the third time. It is often said that “the third time is a charm”, and for Throwing Gravity, that is precisely the expectation. In the fall of 2009, under their original name, The Rust, the band hit the road in promotion of their debut record – the first version that is – entitled “Anticipation”. Touring the House of Blues circuit in support of Secondhand Serenade & Parachute, the group traveled across the entirety of the continental U.S. and a portion of Canada, winning over fans night after night with rock and roll anthems and the live show to back them up. Routing the group to territory previously unknown, the tour ultimately landed the quintet in Los Angeles, and as fate would have it, right into the lap of industry legend Jason Flom, credited with discovering Collective Soul, Stone Temple Pilots, Matchbox Twenty and Kid Rock, in addition to a host of other highly successful acts...

“For the members of Throwing Gravity, 2011 has proved to be an extremely important year for the band. One which saw the band dissolve their contract with their label, contemplate breaking up, and very soon, finally self release their debut album. “[I told the band] either we’re done, or we’re going to write a new record,” lead singer Nick James explained to Alternative Addiction about the crossroad that the band reached earlier this year after their record deal dissolved. “I felt writing a new record was going to people really excited, and I feel like we’ve got a way better record than we were going to have before.” In order to pen some songs for a new album and breath life back into the band, James and producer Jon King went on a four day “writing trip” last spring to isolate themselves and focus on creating new music...

“After signing with Lava Records in January 2010, Throwing Gravity have now parted ways with the label. The band’s debut ‘Wake Up‘, originally scheduled for release in September 2010, will possibly be released later this year. The band has been working on an acoustic EP as of late which is due in March. Check out an acoustic version of “Finally Over” on Facebook.”

“Due to some recent budget cuts at Universal some good artists had to be let go. We recently talked with Shawn Fisher of Son of a Bad Man, whom were one of those good bands to be shown the door, another was Nashville’s Throwing Gravity. It’s unfortunate that they’re no longer with the label, but even more unfortunate is that the band’s album got shelved because this will further complicate it’s release. Despite the circumstances surrounding the band, Throwing Gravity’s Nick James said that they’re not letting it affect them. “We're not down on it. We're all glad that it's happening now. I know that the industry is going through a lot of change right now. And it might have been the best thing that could ever happen,” James told Alternative Addiction. “We think that it will. We also feel like that if we had to do it all over again we would make the same choice. I can't see us making any changes from the information we got in the beginning and the people we met."...”

“While I'm pretty much not a listener of commercial, mainstream rock, mostly because I listen to pretty much worship music or Christian rock/rap/etc only, I do sometimes venture out into secular music, because I'm a sucker for pop rock and for good music. One bands I've recently heard is Throwing Gravity - a really good band that I think has a promising future. The style of this band is the same style I tend to write music in- sometimes heavy, all catchy, and built on a solid hook. ”
