For The Life Of Me was started by four friends, all from different musical backgrounds, after multiple previous efforts and projects faded or separated.
With a wide range of influences, songs began to take shape in a cold garage during the winter of 2009 and continued through the new year of 2012.
The band decided it was finally time to put some music on tape and chose four songs to make an EP, which was recorded by Stephan Hawkes (Vanna, Closure In Moscow, Red Fang) at Interlace Audio in Portland.
Unfortunately, two of the founding members quit to pursue other interests shortly after. Rather than let this be another failed project, the two remaining members spent most of 2012 keeping their ideas fresh in mind while searching for new blood.
With the new additions now on board, For The Life Of Me are ready to make up for lost time and the frustrating false starts by hitting the ground running in 2013 with their debut release – the “Closure” EP (out early in 2013).
The band have released the blisteringly powerful opener “Eleven” as their first single, which also comes with a hauntingly beautiful lyric video portraying their hometown in all its past and present glory.
