Ahimsa Sunrise will be releasing their sophomore EP, Save It via iTunes and Hot Topic locations on April 6th. The band has already self-released their debut EP The Unseen Realm in 2008 and their album Viceroy and The Monarch in late 2005. The band just finished shooting the video for the EP’s single, “Save It”.
Ahimsa Sunrise is a screamo/metalcore band from Du Bois, PA. Often compared to the likes of Underoath, A Skylit Drive, The Devil Wears Prada and Circa Survive, they push all ends of the musical spectrum, yet feature a battle between good and evil, to create a personalized sense of who they are.
Within the fight is a fresh sound that’s been molded by melody, chaos, beauty, and everything in between. With the single, “Save It”, you will find catchy lyrics intertwined with the epic drum beat causing you to constantly crave more. Having already sold over 4k CDs to date, this EP is very well anticipated by all.
Formed in 2005, vocalist & guitarist Seth Cooper, bassist Brian Caine, guitarist Jarrod Currin and drummer Patrick Gallagher, have come a long way by performing alongside various national acts such as; Avenged Sevenfold, Atreyu, Circa Survive, Bullets for My Valentine, Bless the Fall, Receiving End of Sirens, Darkest Hour, God Forbid, The Devil Wears Prada, and more.
They have also played the Vans Warped Tour in both 2008 & 2005 and Taste of Chaos Tour 2008. In 2007, they appeared on FUSE TV for winning the Bodog Battle of the Bands in Washington, D.C., in which they were one of 17 unsigned bands out of 7,000 in the country to advance on, and was in arms reach from running away with a million dollar record deal.
Ahimsa Sunrise is full of extremely determined musicians. After extensive touring, buying a bus, and just finishing up their second EP, this is one of the top upcoming bands to watch out for in 2010.
