Ballast (formerly This is Treason) is a five-piece melodic hardcore band from Derry, NH. They are a group of guys who love to make music and have a good time. Even though they have only been together for about a year, their solid sound, mature songwriting and energetic stage presence shows that this is only the beginning. The best is yet to come for original members: Brian (Guitar/Vocals), Sean (Bass) and Seth (Drums/Vocals) as they team up with Nate (Guitar) and Dave (Lead Vocals) who joined in October 2008. Check out one of their upcoming shows to see what they're all about. I promise - you won't be disappointed.

"We absolutely love what we do and look forward to seeing you at a show. Thank you for everything." -Ballast
