After practicing their craft for years in Knoxville,
TN, Down From Up climbed to the top of the regional
rock scene with their debut album, A Terrible Beauty.
They've undergone a number of transitions since
its beginnings and since enlisting additional players
and changing names, the band has become more elaborate
musically and is often recognized for its top-notch
musicianship. The individual credentials of its
roster have long been the band's claim to fame,
but with a new album. "From Ashes to Empire"
ready to hit shelves, the group has a new accomplishment
to boast collectively.
The new album fuses Matt Brewster's melodramatic
anthems with stadium-ready guitars to create a fine
collection of rock for a new generation of fans.
With standout tracks like "Wasn't For the Rain
and Victim" the music of Down From Up appeals
to rock fans and non-rock fans alike. Sit back,
put on your seat belt because this is the album
you've been waiting for!
