Two years ago, a group of young musicians gathered in the family garage to start a band. After many permutations, the result was Day of Infamy, which met with some success, including shows at the Whiskey and Hard Rock Live, a single played on over 100-college radio stations and even a four page spread in Blast magazine capitalizing on the youth of the band. But with every seeming success, the band began to realize they were displeased with the direction of their music. They decided to make a change, and with the addition of Mic. Kirkland as lead singer, the band became Through You. A name the band believes pays tribute to their supporters and their fans. Propelled by the strong and sincere vocals of new front man Mic. Kirkland, the band began writing and evolving and it wasn't long before they were ready for a new recording. With confidence in their new found musical direction, the band flew to New York to record with engineer Mike Watts (Hopesfall) at Vu Du Studios. Out of those recording sessions came a six song EP named Silhouette. Mixed and mastered by Jon Marshall Smith (Richard Buckner, Joey Ramone, Mosquitos) it ranges from the aggressive "Harbor," to the moving "Orchid." The CD is slated for release in April of 2005 on Parafora Music, and is certain to turn heads. Live, the band's dynamic and scope is no less commanding. Guitarist Michael van den Berg brings a strong energy to the stage, gripping the audience seemingly without effort. Bassist Jeremy Morris brings the deepest tones and a confidence to the stage that shows, the young King van den Berg is indeed shocking to behold; the foundation for which the entire band places their trust. And lastly, Mic. Kirkland, whose vocal arsenal is matched by his on stage charisma. Confident and sincere, Through You compels an audience to not only listen, but to believe in what they are hearing and seeing. With this kind of range and ability, with this kind of passion and sincerity, Through You will continue to make a lasting mark on modern music. Hear the record, see them live and we are confident that you will agree.
