Home & Away are gearing up for the launch of their brand new EP, Still Breathing— a follow-up to their self-titled debut full-length released almost exactly one year ago on April 28, 2012. With a hearty dose of creamy clean guitars, rotund breakdowns, and stalwart and grating, yet goosebump-inducing vocals, the band is setting the bar high for pop-punks to come. Now an alumni of Producer/Engineer Johnny Burke (Abandon All Hope, Modern Day Escape) and Vibe Studios, Home & Away are hitting a line drive to the likes of power pop hubs such as Pure Noise Records, Run For Cover Records, early Drive-Thru Records, and –dare we say it– Rise Records.
Home & Away is a conglomerate of four pop punk natives with a strong boyish charm. Formed in 2011, the now-quartet are bulldozing the “suppy” soaked stages of St. Louis, Missouri followed by the metalcore heart of the Midwest. Founded by Guitarist/Drummer Evan Murray and vocalist Bryan Casselman, Home & Away sifted through the faux-pas of high school angst and three-chord stereotypes to produce an ultimate group of theory-inclined, passionate, and genuine dudes with a penchant for the ultimate DIY experience.
Home & Away is:
Bryan Casselman- vocals
Evan Murray- guitar/vocals/drums
Nick Vandas- guitar/vocals
David Fernandez- bass
