Biography

A group plagued by major-label woes and break-ups, that was exactly what was essential for The Fold’s resilience: healing. Evolving from several Chicago-based rock outfits including Warner Brothers signees, Showoff, it seemed The Fold’s previous groups were in a place most musicians only dream of…and then things changed.

“I suppose I gave up a lot when I left a major label band to start The Fold,” explains the band’s frontman and founder, Daniel Castady, “but if I did, it was because I knew that those things were passing away.”

Not staying silent long, The Fold reached true formation as Castady rounded out the line-up of talented young musicians with a montage of Chicago’s most promising, including Aaron Green on guitar, Keith Mochel on bass and Mark Rhoades on drums. Having already established themselves in previous bands not only allowed The Fold an added maturation or sorts, but also established them with a predetermined, concise focus on what they wanted to see transpire in their future.

In June 2005, The Fold ventured to New York City to begin recording their Tooth & Nail Records’ debut, “This Too Shall Pass” with famed producer, Steven Haigler (Brand New, The Pixies). The album commenced cross-country with the collaboration of protégé producer, Zach Hodges (Terminal, Dead Poetic) in Seattle.

“Lyrically, it deals with what has been going on with me over the past few years,” Castady elaborates, “It’s hard to write that out at times, and that is why this music has been so therapeutic for me; It helps me get through these frustrations. The title of the album is one of hope,” he concludes.
