Last year at Warped Tour we talked to then new Fearless Records signee Volumes. The interview has become on of the more popular ones we have done and covered tons of breaking news that surrounded Volumes at the time. Securing rights to their music, signing to Fearless, Myke Terry joining, the list goes on. This time, it was different. With one member winning a Grammy, new album ‘Different Animals’ out this month, and growing as a band, we learned they have formed into a band that is here to stay and taking names. Watch it below!
Band Sponsor: Jynzo
This interview is sponsored by North Carolina band Jynzo. JYNZO is a progressive metal band based out of Rock Hill, South Carolina. Formed in the fall of 2013 from members of other local bands, they have since taken the South Carolina scene by storm. Driven by powerhouse guitarist and primary songwriter Nick Sellers, their music takes many influences from modern metal titans such as Vildhjarta, Animals As Leaders, Veil of Maya and more recently bands like Architects.
On vocals, Landis Pearce’s visceral techniques and powerful delivery are the perfect match for his introspective and masterfully penned lyrics. Rounding out the lineup with the rhythm section of drummer Corey Phelps and bassist Sam Gibbons, JYNZO was without a doubt a force to be reckoned with. Their debut EP “Invisible” was very well received from both fans and newcomers alike, with a music video and lyric video being released for the songs “Gale” and “Legion” respectively.
After releasing their single “Dark World” in June 2016, and parting ways with original bassist Sam Gibbons earlier this year, JYNZO has done anything but rest on their laurels. Picking up Colby Richardson as their new bassist and heading directly into the studio to record their highly anticipated full-length record, JYNZO have shown no signs of slowing and are hands down THE local band to watch in 2017.
