Biography

Torndown is a Christian rock band from Connecticut. The name torndown is inspired by Hosea 6:1, “Come, let us return to the Lord; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he us struck us down; that he may build us up”. With a strong combination of heavy guitar riffs, complemented by a powerful rhythm section, their lyrics deliver a message of hope and faith, in a way that reaches out to all audiences.

The group just released their brand new EP, “FALLEN”, independently produced and recorded at Eastlake Recording Studio in Shelburne, MA. The album highlights the helplessness we experience as humans and our inability to change on our own. The flip side of the message in this EP talks about embracing our fallen state and accepting the fact we can’t truly survive without putting our faith in God.

Torndown consists of Tim Irish, and Eric Armstrong, and Dan Kuchta. The group originally formed as an acoustic duo in 2007, later evolved into this powerful rock group. Each member brings his own diverse background and faith walk to the mix, providing a strong spiritual backbone that is evident in their recordings and live performances. Tim fronts the band with a mix of heavy yet ethereal guitar compositions layered with an emotive vocal. Eric lays down a powerful foundation to torndown’s sound with his impending presence and rock-solid bass lines. Finally, Dan brings this trio the needed explosive percussion that results in a mesmerizing and innovative sound, mirroring the strength of their mission.

After a recent performance at downtown Nashville’s Rocketown, Austin Cook of Indevo Records said, “I'm looking forward to see what God has in store for you. You are going to change some lives! I'm sure you already are.…!”

The band possesses a passion for music and a faith that drives it. With aspirations exceeding the mind’s capabilities, torndown plans on reaching the masses with a message of hope: that in succumbing to the freefall; You’ll be raised up. Their aim is to reach people for Christ. With this new album, they strove to not limit or pigeon hole those who would be willing to listen. The band feels that the strength in their music is something that people can relate to, whether they have a faith or not. Their hope is that the message finds its way to people who haven't heard the gospel and can be received, even before they might walk into a church or have a conversation about God.

Lyrics

So Far Away

Written By: torndown

“SO FAR AWAY”

VERSE
I have walked so far
and gone nowhere
turned away from all
the right ways to go
evil ways take your place
and left me….
broken down, turned around
I pray, can you hear me

CHORUS
I’ve fallen
I’m so far away
from You….. fallen
I’m so far away

VERSE
Castles built in the sand
tower above
I look down
I’ve lost my crown
walls of pride, from inside
have made me…
empty now, I feel Your frown
I pray, can You hear me

CHORUS
I’ve fallen
I’m so far away
from You…..fallen
I’m so far away

BRIDGE
Just when I’m about to give up
I hear Your voice call out to me
Just when I’m about to give up
I hear Your voice call out to me
I’m with you always

Fallen

Written By: torndown

Fallen

VS 1:
Plunging in a nose dive
And I can’t make it stop
The more that I resist
The faster that I drop

Chorus:
I’ve fallen down on you
Cause I can’t fly alone
Without you I won’t rise
And I won’t make it home

VS 2:
Succumb to the free fall
I know you’ll raise me up
I surrender to the call
I survive on your love

Chorus:
I’ve fallen down on you
Cause I can’t fly alone
Without you I won’t rise
And I won’t make it home

Chorus:
I’ve fallen down on you
Cause I can’t fly alone
Without you I won’t rise
And I won’t make it home

Let It Fade

Written By: torndown

Let It Fade

VS 1:
I’m falling to pieces
Sitting alone
Reflecting on my life
I’m tired of taking what isn’t mine
And abusing love all of the time

Turn my life around

Chorus:
Take this hate
Let it fade away
(Repeat)

VS 2:
I’m finding the pieces
Hard to collect
It’s never been easy
I’m in need of you in me
Can you build me from this debris?

Build me up again

Chorus:
Take this hate
Let it fade away
(Repeat)
Let it fade x 2

Save me x 2
Show me how to let this go x 2

Take this hate…

Chorus:
Take this hate
Let it fade away
(Repeat)
Let it fade x 2

Way Out

Written By: torndown

Way Out

VERSE
I’m going down
my heart pounds, eyes close
that’s when I think betray
been here before
loosing the war for my soul
but I won’t lose it today…

PRE CHORUS
falling down, I scream out, no more….

CHORUS
Face this rage
I’ll turn this page, I won’t go down
cause you’ve given me a way out
Eternity
is in front of me, so I’ll fight on
I’m taking the way out

VERSE
Sleepless nights
from the darks version of light
whispers of ok
take their place
it’s easier to erase
then I bow my head and pray…

PRE CHORUS
falling down, I scream out, no more….

CHORUS
Face this rage
I’ll turn this page, I won’t go down
cause you’ve given me a way out
Eternity
is in front of me, so I’ll fight on
I’m taking the way out
