Tragedy Vs. Comedy
Ironically enough, tragedy and comedy are common threads running through the story of Through A Glass. Beginning as a six-piece band in 2005, Through A Glass had a grass roots beginning, playing at local schools, clubs, and churches. Now the band is what many would call "on the verge" as they progress at a rapid pace. The band was in the midst of recording their first full-length project in the summer of 2006 when singer/keyboard player, 16 year-old Nathan Johnson was killed in a car accident. This tragedy sparked a fire in the lives and music of the band and they released the record in his memory, titled "Called Out: A Tribute", in November of 2006. From there, the band began to ride a wave of open doors, as the tide began to change. The band took time to recollect, heal, and then began to write music and play again. The remaining five members have certainly grown into their sound and have developed a truly original presentation. Front man Jeremiah Barnes, who draws comparisons to Jeff Buckley and Gerard Way, leads the pack with an impressively consistent voice that boasts of purity and strength. Big Red, the bands powerhouse background vocalist and rhythm guitarists certainly stands out in personality and talent. The band's rhythm section proves to be the steady and consistent driving force as drummer, Jeremy Brown, and bassist, Tyler Ricker allow the band to blend classic feels with modern pop/rock. Philip Revell, the bands left handed lead guitarist, brings about original riffs and eclectic style that allows Through A Glass to stand out among the rest. The band's newest studio release, "Tragedy vs. Comedy", (Produced by Pete Thornton and Brooks Paschal) which is set to release on December 27, 2007, will be a true testimony to the band's maturity as artists. The band was able to truly flex it's creative muscles and are very pleased to present the project that they have been sitting on for so long. Even from the first listen, it is very obvious that this band has a story to tell. This is a band that will not fade nor be forgotten. They have truly been prepared for a time such as this.
