Emerging South West metalcore unit ‘From Rust’, reveal their explosive debut EP ‘Lost Sense Of Life’ on Friday 25th November. We have asked them to introduce themselves…..
What is the full line up and who plays what?
The band consists of Vocalist – Jake Searle, Lead Guitarist – Camden Gibson, Rhythm Guitarist – Tom Waters, Bassist – Sam Elswood, and drummer – Sam Kellaway.
When and how did the band really start gelling and solidifying?
The band started gelling and solidifying after almost a year of constant practising until they were ready to gig. After a couple of months gigging in late 2015 the band found themselves improving and taking things more seriously. We then went on to work with producer George Lever from G1 Productions in early 2016 to record our debut EP “Lost Sense Of Life”.
What are your musical influences?
Our musical influences range from: Parkway Drive, Motionless In White, As I Lay Dying, Periphery, Northlane, All That Remains.
How far back does your history with each other (the band members) extend? Are you friends from school? Any family relations?
Jake and Camden met in their first year of college and have been best friends since. They then went on to form the band and advertise for members on an internet site called “joinmyband.com”, the bands former bassist Krisztian Viragh was the first to join after he saw the advertisement online, Krisztian stayed in the band for 2 years until he departed from the band in August 2016. Rhythm guitarist tom waters and drummer Sam Kellaway also found Jake and Camden through the online advertisement. Vocalist Jake Searle and Bassist Sam Elswood met in mid 2015 when they were apart of a separate band project, Sam Elswood then joined from rust to complete the line up in mid august 2016.
Where have you played or toured? Please name all countries / regions and recognised bands that you have played with.
We have played multiple locations in and around Somerset. Most notable: Bristol, Exeter, Taunton, Bridgwater, and Street (near Glastonbury). We have supported bands such as: Despite My Deepest Fear, Values, Thrones, Chuggaboom, Engraved Disillusion.
In your opinion, how is your band different from all the other bands out there?
From Rust stands out as a band because we blend modern bouncy rhythms with an old school metalcore vibe that anyone can nod their head to, we use unique styled vocals that are different to other bands to give us a signature sound. Each track from the EP is unique with lyrical variation and musical tone to show our diversity as a band.
