Tonight’s HFS Locals Only Spotlight features Baltimore post-hardcore rock band When Embers Ignite.
The founding core of the band–bassist Bobby DeRosa, drummer Mike Nager, and lead guitarist Mike DeProspo–first got together, they set out to follow in the footsteps of bands like Saosin, Story Of The Year, and Anberlin. After honing their sound and recruiting vocalist Tawni Lee and guitarist Josh Kennon, everything started rolling for them: new songs were written one after the other, the band played show after show, and the fanbase started to grow.
On Sunday, January 27th, they’ll be returning to the site of their first show at the Recher Theatre…and if you’re hearing the same hooks and talent that caught our ears, get tickets for the show, check out more of their stuff on their website, follow them on Facebook and Twitter, and watch for their EP release later this year.
And if you’ve got a local band you’d like us to feature on the HFS Locals Only Spotlight weeknights at 9 PM, here’s how to get your stuff to us.
