When it comes to building a big sound, this metalcore outfit doesn’t bother with half-measures. Guitarists Zack Hansen and Tony Pizzuti not only provide massive crunch and harmonized leads but further fatten the sound with backing vocals and programming, an arsenal that can swell the sonics to near-symphonic grandeur, as with the intertwining guitars, keys, [...]

Dearest Revolver magazine readers,
It's been my pleasure to write several blogs for you guys to read and get a little closer look at the life of a touring musician, as well as a personal look inside my life and why I'm doing what I'm doing. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed writing them and reading all the responses. This is where we say farewell, but it's not before leaving you guys with our last update for 2010 from the road. Our last tour with A Day To Remember, Underoath and Close Your Eyes was incredible, and we met so many new fans. I hope you found yourself in one of our three previous videos. We saved the best for last (and for Revolver, who has been so supportive of TWA this year).
So it's that time of year, my friends. The holiday season is upon us. Thanksgiving is around the corner and, before you know it, Christmas and New Years. Being on tour for the last four years has kept me from family and friends during most holidays, so I want to encourage you all to really take advantage of the time you may have with your families these holidays. While on tour, this group of guys become my family. I'm not sure where we'll be for Thanksgiving but probably a hotel watching football and drinking some beers, haha
