Feeling a bit camera shy


The defining moment. Random memories of when you were four-years-old. Youthful heartbreaks. Leaving the life you've known behind to seek out what the future may hold. The time where you sit back and reflect on the events that have shaped your life and the choices that have made you who you are today, even if just for a second. The moments that define who you are. But that moment always comes again, changing you, strengthening you, and teaching you those invaluable lessons in life.
The defining moment is always changing, says guitarist Grant Irvin. Redefining, if you will.
Each member of Redefining the Moment has felt the power of the defining moment, and you need only pay attention to the words or watch a single performance to catch a glimpse into the effect of these moments on their music. From the surging guitar riffs and infectious energy to the thunderous drums and rapid-fire bass licks, Redefining the Moment redefines everything you thought you knew about pop-punk rock. Whereas most bands will be content with simple 4-chord progressions and lyrics that rhyme, Redefining the Moment takes a different, more technical approach. Every segment of every song is analyzed, broken down, structured, and fine-tuned from what would appear to be a never-ending bag of tricks. Be it the high-energy jumpiness in A Good Friend and Time to Mend, the flying lead bass solo in Closed Eyes of Middle America, the choppy tremolo and sonic boom effects in Oxygen for Two, or the fluid mix of melody and power in Life After a High-Speed Collision, Redefining the Moment is proud to show that they pull no punches.
The roots of Redefining the Moment can be traced back to Tomball, TX. Bassist Luke Icenhower and Grant first crossed paths in a short-lived band that lasted 2 months before falling apart, causing the two to lose contact. Months later, Luke joined vocalist/guitarist Blake Manuel in a 4-piece punk band called Donoras Center. However, 3 years and 150 miles later (the band had since relocated to Austin), Donoras Center hung up its hat and the four former band mates parted ways. Shortly after, Luke and Grant randomly crossed paths again one night at Blake's apartment, jammed for several hours, and talks began of creating what we know of today as Redefining the Moment.
Since their formation, its been all uphill with no end in sight. Following a premier show to a 150+ crowd at the Dirty Dog in Austin, they instantly jumped into the studio with producer Mark Dufour (Fuel, Dynamite Boy, Cruiserweight) to record new tracks for their growing fan base. Following the release of their 4-track EP, the band was asked to perform at the Dirty Dog/101X Block Party New Years Eve, were inducted as members of the Austin Indie Alliance, and played prime slots for the Heart of Texas Quadruple Bypass Music Festival and the AIA SXSW Showcase. Soon after, the band found Jorge Garcia-Nunez as a willing and capable drummer to replace their recently departed original drummer, and the music began to reform and develop (redefine) even further. Bringing many years of solid drumming to the table, his unique talent transformed the RTM sound into an even more solid and technical sound. Things are going so well so fast that I often have to stop and wonder if its even real, chuckles Luke. I don't think the world even knows what awaits it.
