Five years ago, under the sleeping streets of Milwaukee, Wisconsin five friends got together to make some noise. They got together to have some fun. They got together to shake things up a bit. They got together because the sounds, the sweat, the ear piercing decibels, the broken mics, the shattered guitars, the shaking asses, the pumping fist, the one light bulb swinging dangerously in harms way, and the action of the basement were all too much to ignore.
The feeling was calling, so Since by Man answered.
Five years later many things have changed…SINCE BY MAN hasn't. They have evolved. They evolved into one of the most visceral, intense, and uncompromising bands in heavy music today. With a love for mixing things up and a hatred of being tied to one genre, SINCE BY MAN has shared the stage with the likes of The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Rapture, International Noise Conspiracy, The Locust, Underoath, Glass Candy, Isis, and Andrew WK.
After three years of tireless DIY touring and three limited releases, SINCE BY MAN released their debut full length on Revelation Records, "We Sing the Body Electric" in the winter of 2002. The release of "We Sing…" marked SINCE BY MAN's arrival on the international music scene. It's record that masterfully combines danceability, brutality, sincerity, and decadence in one tight package of rock and roll destruction.
So now after going to hell and back, SINCE BY MAN has weathered the good and bad. The tours, arrests, debauchery, quiet nights, long drives, broken teeth, broken gear, broken faces, the cancellations, line up changes, parties, shows, late night swims in lakes filled with corpses, love, and hate all have come together and have been laid to tape. The follow up EP to "We sing…", "A Love Hate Relationship", packs it all in. Though only a taste, clocking in at a mere thirteen minutes, SINCE BY MAN explores the never-ending tug of war between love and hate, anger and joy, and creation and destruction. In four tracks they run the gamit once again... atmospheric Mogwai-esque sound explorations bookended by Converge-like intensity and Queens of the Stone Age dance rock head banging, meets blah blah fucking blah…
So bring that shit. Bring your attitude. Bring your expectations. Bring your preconceived notions. Bring your meaningless comparisons. Bring your breathing and your screaming, your shaking and your clapping. SINCE BY MAN will bring the noise, and it will be loud
