LIKE MOTHS TO FLAMES bursted into the flourishing Ohio metal-core scene in early 2010. The band created a huge buzz locally which caught the attention of Rise Records, who have always been known for their knack of finding the "next big thing". The boys quickly signed to Rise and released a digital EP entitled “Sweet Talker” through the label which was published December 14th, 2010.
The band features Chris Roetter who fronted EMAROSA and AGRACEFUL early on. Their full length debut "When We Don't Exist" (info | shop) has everything the kids want: huge breakdowns and monumental choruses. LIKE MOTHS TO FLAMES manage to blend the two flawlessly unlike so many of their contemporaries and succeed in creating an homogenous sound by that.
The big tours have already started to happen even without a proper full length album at hand. LIKE MOTHS TO FLAMES are part of the annual “Thrash and Burn” tour which this year features WINDS OF PLAGUE, CHELSEA GRIN and AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK. The future is bright for LIKE MOTHS TO FLAMES. They have a well seasoned front-man, an amazing new album and with Nuclear Blast the world’s biggest independent metal label behind them to take the band to the next level. Fans of ASKING ALEXDANDRIA, WE CAME AS ROMANS and THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA won’t get around these red-hot and promising newcomers!
