Distance – Orlando, FL. Up-and-coming modern rock act for fans of Creed, Burn Season, Cold, etc. Supporting the new full-length album 8 Miles To Empty, which was produced, engineered & mixed by Brett Hestla (Goneblind, Downstem, Virgos Merlot), Justin Thomas (Faktion, Boxplow) & Distance. For more information, contact the group at band@distanceband.com or booking@distanceband.com. - Kings of A&R


Distance from Orlando, Florida plays in the same league of riff and chorus-based modern rock bands like Cold, Revis and Hoobastank.

Their debut "8 miles to empty" may not have the same strong songs as the bands I mentioned but they aren´t far behind either......... this 13 track album should´ve contained 10 tracks instead coz there are a few fillers at the end of the record but the first half of the album is really great with adrenalinrockers like the opening title track "8 miles....","Meaningless" and "Role play".
But the real highlight of the album is track no:4 "Who we are" which Revis couldn´t have done better.....this one will be added to our melodic.net radio right away.......amazing tune!!!!!

A strong effort that falls a bit at the end of the album and that´s a shame,I also must add that this is not a reunion of the AOR band Distance with singer Robert Hart that made "Under the one sky" in 89. - www.melodic.net

Bio

Distance is negativity. It is what lies between where we are and where we want to be. But for some, distance just is. It represents the hard work left to do and is a reminder of how much better you can be. It serves as a milestone between who we are and what we are to become.

In much the same way the Orlando, FL based band Distance is working to be what they will become; a nationally selling & touring modern rock band. This is not an unattainable goal as they have the dedication, gear, and most importantly the songs to support their ambition. Although Distance is made up of the individual personalities of Kevin Hedrick, Paul Cohen, Rick Jordan & Matt Payne, the driving force behind Distance is song-writing and lyricism; the two main keys to success in the music industry.

With the release of the debut album “8 miles to empty”, Distance is prepared to take the industry by storm. In its first week of release the album had already gotten the attention of Robert Thompson of Kings of A&R. “8 miles to empty” features 13 songs produced by Brett Hestla, Justin Thomas & Distance and is a compelling example of what modern rock is and should be.

In support of their album, Distance has played at such well known venues as Hard Rock Live & The Social in Orlando, the Masquerade in Tampa, and Eddie C’s in Gainesville. They are continuing to grow their fan-base and build their reputation by continuing to play shows around Florida. Distance wants to get their music to the people and is not hindered by ego. They are not afraid to open for other acts and welcome any chance to play a show.

You will find no given meaning for the music that Distance creates. Like distance itself, it is what it is. The meanings and application of their lyrics & music are for each fan to decide for themselves. In it you may find healing, retrospect, ambiguity, enlightenment, or even controversy.

Look ahead :: there is Distance.
