Feeling a bit camera shy


Girl meets boy. Boy loves girl. Girl leaves boy. Boy is “A Chaotic Symphony”.

“Roses” was a written Christmas present for a girl who tore the heart out of a young boy and walked on it all the way to Boston. Months later, a band of friends and school rivals came together to mend the open wounds bestowed upon them by harsh loves. Just to ravish them open again and spill the blood upon their music for everyone to hear their pain.
“For the urge to scream and cry for the broken hearts of young loves and bitter rivals turned in the pits of our stomach for years. We wrote songs and have done nothing with them till we have recorded "Roses", which sparked the fumes that cause this band to combust into motion.” A Chaotic Symphony

March 2005, Eric Ketelhut (lead vocals/guitarist) and Justin Thomas (lead guitar/vocals) began to put ACS together a stitch at a time. Adopting Brandon Orlich (bass guitar/ vocals) into the family and adding Tony Gergenti (percussion) the puzzle becomes complete. Influenced by The Used, Taking Back Sunday, Emery, Underoath, Dashboard Confessional (the list can go on) they began to write and recorded five songs. Practicing out of a small basement in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, ACS was building themselves from the ground up with below average equipment, earning respect with whatever they use…
“Anyone can have ‘top of the line’ equipment; just give me something to plug into.” Justin Thomas – ACS

August 2005, ACS caught the ear of Flint, Michigan’s major rock station Banana 101.5. “Roses” was played over their airways among the likes of Atreyu, Chevelle, & Rise Against; everything began to fall in place. Detroit Concerts noticed the potential ACS possessed and gave them the headlining spot at St. Andrew’s Hall (Detroit) for the “Motor City Throw down”, August 18th 2005 to be their debut live show. A Chaotic Symphony proved to Detroit Concerts that they could fill the venue which in return rewarded ACS with more headlining shows at St. Andrew’s. Meanwhile, ACS also performed at the Magic Stick, the Shelter, Paycheck’s Lounge, Alvin’s, TNT’s and the list is still growing. The more shows the “broken-hearted” boys play, more songs are written, ranging from the depths of hardcore ear piercing screams to the bitter taste of new tears to be shed.
