With Our Arms To The Sun

Since I’ve started this site, I’ve seen and heard quite a few bands that will forever be engrained in my brain. One of those bands, With Our Arms To The Sun is fast becoming one of my all time favorites. Musically they captivate you with the first note. Their live shows are beyond an experience. I’d even go as far as saying that seeing them live is life changing. These guys play with every ounce of their being and leave it all on stage. So on Friday night when they took the stage I could sense that this was going to be quite a show. They played with such force throughout their set, leaving no time in between songs to gather themselves, instead going straight into the next song taking no prisoners along the way. They set featured songs from their great album A Far Away Wonder which is being re-released this Friday through Fade To Silence records. Their set was so heavy and epic, that they literally brought the roof down and shattered a few lights due to their intensity and love for their music. When With Our Arms To The Sun comes through any town, you should get there and see them. You won’t be disappointed.

"We've done lots of DIY tours where we booked ourselves around the western parts of the United States," vocalist/guitarist Josh Breckenridge said. "Now that we are working with a booking agent, we have some other great support tours in the works and 2016 is going to be a big year."

With Our Arms to the Sun is a breath of fresh air in a musical landscape dominated by pop formatted bands. The Arizona desert-based foursome crafts a brand of cinematic conceptual music that aims to evoke emotion and inspire thought in listeners. The band's free-flowing style is not easily pigeon-holed, appealing to fans of not just one genre, but to people in general who appreciate music as expression.

"My son and I went to see John 5 perform in East Texas and as luck would have it, With Our Arms to the Sun were the supporting artist," said Fade to Silence founder Paul Bibeau. "Upon taking the stage, the band took complete control of the room and I was locked into every second of their performance. To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. It felt has though the band was playing the very last concert ever and wanted to put it all on the table. Their performance was thoroughly pleasing, cinematic in scope coupled with an intense, passionate delivery. I got sucked into each note, each composition and I loved they journey they took me on. I spent a few minutes with them afterwards and we began to talk more and more. I knew immediately, this is my cup of tea."

With Our Arms to the Sun's first release through Fade to Silence will be a reissue of the band's self-released A Far Away Wonder EP on CD and vinyl.

"We were anti-label for the longest time and did everything DIY," said With Our Arms to the Sun vocalist/guitarist Josh Breckenridge. "We recorded and distributed all of our own albums, and even made our own merch. One of the reasons we were not interested in being on a label was that we wanted to retain our sound. We are not interested in changing who we are artistically just to be more 'marketable' or 'commercial.' There are plenty of bands pounding that drum and we want to do something different. Paul immediately understood what we were going for as a band and rather than be a typical industry person, he encouraged our growth towards being a conceptual band. Also the chance at being one of the flagship bands on a new label that has a creative philosophy really appealed to us as artists."

With Our Arms to the Sun - which is completed by Joseph Leary, Joseph Breckenridge Jr. and John Mclucas - has three self-released recordings to their credit. The Fade to Silence re-release of A Far Away Wonder will come later this year. With Our Arms to the Sun is managed by Alan Jones/Slant Business Management and booked by Andrew Goodfriend/TKO.
