Biography

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. After viewing the band’s showcase at the world-famous Viper Room, Flom signed the band to his newly-reformed Lava Records, doing business as a subsidiary of Universal Republic. All the hard work it seemed, had finally paid off - Throwing Gravity (to be) had finally landed the coveted “major label deal”.

Upon signing their contract with Lava/Universal in December 2009 and officially changing their name from The Rust to Throwing Gravity, the band was pushed right into the studio on January 1st, 2010 to begin the recording process for what would become “Wake Up”, the group’s (official) debut release.
