Bio

Until the Anthem was never meant to be a band.

Until the Anthem began with one basic purpose: to create music for fun. Music with no rules or restrictions. In a climate where musical pursuits, more often than not it seems, mirror that which is presently garnering radio acclaim, Until the Anthem started simply as a means to create songs, to pursue ideas that were thought to be interesting and creative, without the worry of what others might think of the finished product.

Growing up in small town Georgia, childhood friends, and co-founders-to-be of Until the Anthem, Jesse Triplett (vocals/guitar) and Tom DuPree III (drums) have played music together for a long time. The pair started their first band as teenagers and performed throughout their high school career. Following graduation, they each went their separate ways - DuPree heading to college & moving to Los Angeles afterward, and Triplett touring as a full-time musician, playing upward of 250 dates a year immediately out of high school.

During this time period, Triplett would have the opportunity to work with Dove Award-winning Nashville producers David Zaffiro (Little Big Town, Point of Grace) and Lynn Nichols (Switchfoot, Mutemath), while DuPree found himself in Los Angeles keeping company with Ethan Allen (Elvis Costello, Better Than Ezra) and Grammy-nominated Mark Needham (The Killers, Fleetwood Mac). For years, as Triplett toured the country non-stop, playing for crowds of up to 25,000 people, DuPree enjoyed success with music placements across TV & film, even landing a guest starring role as “Angus the drummer” in an episode of ABC Family’s hit show “Make It or Break It”.

As time wore on, and with bands changing, the two musicians each found themselves drawn toward something more artistically gratifying. Having maintained their friendship from opposite sides of the country - Triplett in Georgia and DuPree in California - the duo began recording songs for fun, tracking guitars in a closet in rural Georgia and drums in a North Hollywood rehearsal space and subsequently sending the audio files coast to coast. This marked the beginning of what would ultimately become Until the Anthem.

Eventually the two friends moved to Nashville, TN, reuniting with plans to continue recording and make a living as hired musicians in the process. But a chance opportunity saw the pair not only back in the same town, but in a new band with promise. Putting their as-of-yet unnamed project on hold, the duo experience a whirlwind first year in Nashville with their newly-joined group - touring the House of Blues circuit across the US and Canada, signing a major label deal with Universal Records under the direction of industry legend Jason Flom (Stone Temple Pilots, Matchbox Twenty, etc.), and recording a big-budget record with Jon King (Augustana), Josh Abraham (Velvet Revolver, Staind), Ryan Williams (30 Seconds to Mars, OutKast) & Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Paramore, etc.).

But as quickly as it happened, the momentum stopped. Armed with plenty of downtime and a new name for their previous project in Until the Anthem, the duo got back to recording music for the fun of it, this time vying to make a complete album.

For the next year, in between band shows, session work, and playing with several artists for hire - including Triplett’s filling the lead guitar role for Collective Soul, as well as lead singer Ed Roland’s side project - the team pursued the creation of Until the Anthem’s first full-length record. Reverting from million-dollar studios with fancy vocal booths back to a rehearsal space and the bedroom closet, Triplett and DuPree finally completed the recording process of Until the Anthem’s self-titled, debut record - a project 4 years in the making.

Until the Anthem was never meant to be a band. It is a project built on inconsistency, it’s only consistency being that it has always been there as a foundation of musicality when needed, a creative outlet unbound by e
