Biography

These days, people put bands together looking to cash-in on a particular “scene.” They cobble together a slick MySpace page, hire an agent and a “fan”-ager and quickly develop an inflated sense-of-entitlement. And while that’s one way to go about it, there is also the old-fashioned DIY model: form a band with friends in a basement, tour your butts off until your songs and stage-show have something unique and powerful to offer and build a real following.

This was the roadmap for bands like Boysetsfire and Snapcase back in the day. And this approach has meant everything for Therefore I Am, whose fiery and impassioned hard / melodic rock mix defies easy categorization. Think about the fearlessness and self-reliance of boundary-breaking bands like At The Drive In and Thrice and you’ll begin to have some idea of what Therefore I Am is all about, having developed on the road and in the rehearsal room.

“We’re a rock band stuck between the hardcore scene and the pop / indie / screamo scene,” laughs guitarist Brian Marquis. “We try to write intelligent rock music that’s also heavy without being super-slick pop.” Therefore I Am accomplishes that goal all over The Sound of Human Lives, their Equal Vision Records debut.

The album kicks off with the hold-nothing-back relentless attack of “Death by Fire,” just one of several strong standouts on a record decidedly absent of filler material.
