In a sea of melodic clones struggling to break through the surface, Earshot has always had the innate ability to transcend the rigid barrier of genre-defining music with a singular sound that can only be described as their own. Their signature, driving, hard rock beats coupled with hook-laden harmonies are matched only by their unbridled creativity and willingness to experiment with musical textures and themes – elements that captivated fans’ attention in the band’s early days and continue to do so now 20 years later as the band experiences one of its biggest resurgences to date. With their latest single “You + I”, it seems things may just be coming full circle for the iconic hard rockers. Formed in 1999 – the genesis of lead vocalist Wil Martin with then members Bassist Guy Couturier, Drummer Dieter Hartman, and Guitarist Scott Kohler– the Los Angeles-based band quickly shot to success after signing with Warner Bros. Records in 2002. They released their debut album LETTING GO (produced by David Kahne and mixed by Andy Wallace). Upon its release, the band quickly found themselves on the road touring constantly with such notable rock acts as Kid Rock, Staind, Shinedown, Hooabstank, and Stone Temple Pilots to support the record. This national exposure, combined with an aggressive radio campaign that was operating on full-throttle to push the debut single “Get Away,” propelled the song to #4 on the U.S. Active Rock Radio Charts and helped it stay in the Top 100 for over 64 weeks. At the same time, Earshot’s hit song “Headstrong” was featured on The Queen of The Damned soundtrack alongside other artists such as Disturbed, Deftones and Marilyn Manson further cementing their place among rock’s elite. However, it wasn’t until the band’s sophomore album TWO (produced by Johnny K. and mixed by Rich Costey), released by Warner Bros. Records in 2004, that they would hit mainstream success with their single “Wait.” It not only reached #9 on U.S. Active Rock Radio but was also featured on the Madden NFL 2005 and MX vs. ATV Unleashed video game soundtracks. After the monumental success of their first two albums, Earshot found themselves at a crossroads with Warner Bros. Records and eventually parted ways in 2005. This led to a brief break for the band before inking a deal with Indegoot/Fontana/Universal Recordings in 2007 to release their THE SILVER LINING (produced by Brian Garcia and Martin and mixed by Mike Watts). This record lead the band on a successful road where they inevitably created their fifth-charting radio single “MisSunderstood.” With three chart-topping albums under the belts and a rigorous seven years of touring and recording, Earshot took a hiatus after the release of THE SILVER LINING. Yet after a nearly decade-long break they emerged with a vengeance, producing their long-awaited fourth studio recording AFTERMATH (produced by Martin and mixed by Sam Hughes), a five-song mini-LP featuring an intimate, re-recorded, acoustic performance of “Fall Apart,” previously released on the band’s second and most beloved album TWO, as well as the release of the album’s first single "Now That It's Over." Through the epic highs and lows of the music industry and life in general, Earshot, once again, found solace in making music for lovers of rock and metal. They officially reactivated in 2019 with 4 new members and had an immediate urge to create. Aaron Fink, the former lead guitarist for Platinum-selling Breaking Benjamin, John Novak from the alternative rock band Down To Six on bass, Andy Stafford on rhythm guitar, and Mike Sylvia on drums. Regardless of the trends, trials and tribulations, Earshot have always remained true to themselves creating music that their fans can relate to on a deeper level, starting with their first hit of 2021, “Been A Long Time,” which was unveiled on New Year’s Eve and was the #2 MOST ADDED spot on the Billboard (BDS) Mainstream Rock Indicator chart and reaching the Top 20 Billboard Mainstream and Active Rock Charts.
