Baltimore, Maryland-based metallers I The Breather will tour Europe this fall with support from Shoot The Girl First and Novelists. The trek goes through several countries and kicks off Nov. 28 in Belgium and will end on Dec. 22 in Russia, all dates and locations are listed below.
The band’s third and latest album “Life Reaper” was released on July 15, 2014 by Sumerian Records. It was produced by the band and Century band members Ricky Armellino, Grant McFarland, Carson Slovak.
Vocalist Shawn Spann was featured on The Royal’s last album “Dreamcatchers” on the song ‘Halfhearted’.
I, The Breather was formed by Justin Huffman and Morgan Wright in late 2009. They started off as a little project in my basement and evolved very quickly landing a deal with a prominent booking agency, label and management. The name stems from God allowing of us to breathe; breathing is meaning.
When I, The Breather started writing their debut record, they knew that they wanted to make it a very aggressive record. The sound of These Are My Sins is very heavy and in your face, but has a melodic and catchy side that keeps your attention throughout every song.
Lyrical topics mainly come from Shawn [vocals] and Morgan‘s personal problems with being lost at times and then found again by the Lord. Also, some of the lyrical content is edgy. They call out the people who claim to be the holy ones but are the first to cast judgment and spit in your face. Just capturing the negativity of close-minded people
The line-up consist of: Shawn Spann – Vocals, Chase Kozlowski – Guitar, Kyle Bowman – Guitar, Aaron Ovecka – Drums, Conor Hesse – Bass.
