"On-Air Personality, Pam Thrash - B97 96.7 FM Bloomington, IN"

I just took a listen to Bastion Rose's upcoming Fade To Blue EP and WOW! My old school rock self immediately thought of Metallica meets Pink Floyd meets Dire Straits. But, their music can't be defined by these or any other comparisons. It can only be categorized by the incredibly talented musicians, impeccable production, intelligent song writing, and a pure rock passion. I immediately envisioned them performing their music in huge arenas with mesmerized fans all lost in the music. Their first single released called "Coming for You" has such a great rock groove! Take a listen...but listen while taking a night drive with the windows down for the full effect. Rock fans of all ages need to do themselves a favor and take a listen to anything Bastion Rose puts out! I'm a fan! - B97


Still working on that hot first release.



The debut EP from Bastion Rose, Fade To Blue, is an unbridled expression of raw emotion and hard-hitting rock that showcases the band’s impressive range and musical depth. The four-track EP features a mix of ethereal soundscapes and hard-hitting rock anthems supported by powerful guitar riffs, all tied together by the band’s signature blend of soulful vocals, intricate guitar work, and driving rhythm section. Produced by three-time award-winning producer David Bottrill, known for his work with bands such as Tool and Muse, the EP is a polished and professional release that captures the raw energy of the band’s live performances.

The EP’s lead single, “Coming For You,” begins with the gentle strum of an effects-soaked electric guitar but quickly rips forward as a charged, electric behemoth and an instant rock classic. The single is set for release on May 14, and is sure to be a hit with fans of classic and modern rock alike. With influences ranging from Pink Floyd, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Metallica to Tool, Foo Fighters, and The Black Keys, Bastion Rose is a band that knows how to write catchy and memorable rock songs that will get your blood pumping.

“Coming For You” is a statement of intent from Bastion Rose, announcing their arrival as a force to be reckoned with in the world of modern rock. With its catchy hooks, soaring guitar solos, and impassioned vocals, the song is sure to leave a lasting impression on listeners, and sets the stage for what promises to be an outstanding debut EP.

It’s worth noting that the EP is even more impressive given the personal struggles of the band’s frontman and songwriter, Austin Frink. Frink has overcome tremendous loss and personal hardship, including the sudden deaths of both his parents and a cancer diagnosis that left him without his singing voice following surgery. However, despite these challenges, Frink and the rest of the band have persevered and created a stunning debut that stands on its own merits. For fans of classic and modern rock alike, Bastion Rose’s Fade To Blue is a must-listen EP that promises to leave a lasting impression.
