History

BandRock

History is absolutely unafraid to be big and loud and a little complicated. We sound like RUSH getting tag teamed by FARAQUET and HELMET at a YES concert. More simply put, we are a progressive indie rock band that likes to push boundaries on modern rock.

Biography

How is History made?

One part former My Hotel Year member.

Add one part former New Roman Times member.

Recipe jokes aside, History was made out of dissatisfaction for the musical directions of the past. We wanted to create a harder, more progressive sound that challenged our abilities and your attentiveness. We love to make people clap during breaks in a song before its over, and more so we love your reaction when you realize the song isn't over. History has taken influences from artists as varied as Yes and Rush to Helmet, Hum, Quicksand and even a little Sabbath. Hell, we have a flutist and two keyboards, but we don't sing about faeries nor do we make synthy dance music. We are a new breed of rock n roll.
