Biography

Atlanta, GA (2009 – 2013)

Woe, Is Me was a post-hardcore/metalcore band formed in Atlanta, GA in 2009. The band is currently signed to Rise Records and its subsidiary, Velocity Records. Their debut full-length album, Numbers, was released on August 31, 2010 and charted at #16 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers. Since then, they released an album (Genesis) and an EP (American Dream) before their breakup in late 2013.

The original lineup consisted of Austin Thornton, Kevin Hanson, and Tim Sherrill with Cory Ferris and Ben Ferris. These members recruited vocalists Michael Bohn and Tyler Carter for unclean and clean vocals, respectively.

The band recorded a three-song demo with producer Cameron Mizell containing the songs “Hell, Or High Water,” “I.,” and “If Not, for Ourselves,” which were uploaded to their MySpace profile. They also recorded and released a cover of “TiK ToK.” The Artery Foundation took notice and Rise/Velocity Records signed the band before they even played their first show. They recorded their album during the same month that they were signed.

The band’s first tour was on the Pyknic pArtery Tour in the summer of 2010, headlined by Drop Dead, Gorgeous and shared with From First to Last, Attila, Sleeping with Sirens, Abandon All Ships, For All Those Sleeping, and Scarlett O’Hara.

Tyler Carter’s -influenced clean vocals has garnered him comparisons to Jonny Craig, who also provided guest vocals on their album. The band went on a Canadian tour supporting Abandon All Ships in October of 2010 as well as the Average Guys With Exceptional Hair Tour across America, presented by MerchNow.com, in November with A Skylit Drive, Motionless In White, Scarlett O’Hara, and For All Those Sleeping.

    Why did everyone seem to hate Genesis? I'm listening to it for the first time ever and I'm liking it.

    I hope that Tyler and michael start this band back up as a side project someday. This band was something special. Hell even if parts of the new lineup were in it I wouldn't mind.

    Undeniably one of the craziest bands I've heard ever. There is no other band I know that has accomplished mixing Pop and Punk so well like Woe, Is Me. Awesome shit. Though I only like the Clean Vocals of Woe, Is Me (especially Hance Alligoods are fucking awesome)

    Because Genesis is very repetitive. But it's a matter of taste ofcourse. And these guys can't hold on to a stable line-up anyway, so I don't think you guys want them to reunite if you really think about it

    I really hope if Tyler and Michael don't do well in Issues in the future that they will bring this band back.

    Tim Sherrill is a fantastic guitarist and so is Geoffrey Higgins. I'm bummed he neither are in Issues. I really hope one of them gets popular in a new band.
