West of Worthy


      Young metalcore band, West of Worthy, is ready to take the scene by storm. Self-proclaimed performing addicts, the band is actively looking for shows to play hoping to rack up more experience and spread their music to as many ears as possible. When asked about the meaning behind the band's name, the band replied, "Sometimes, no matter what you do or how much you give, it's never worthy of the praise of society or whoever matters most in your life. Hence, West of Worthy."

      The band comes from Mukwonago, WI, a suburb of the greater Milwaukee area. According to the band, the local music scene is "becoming pretty lively these days" and the band is getting support slowly, but surely. The band describes their music as aggresive and hardcore, laced with ambient guitar melodies and hard hitting breakdowns. The band doesn't label themselves as a christian band, but they have positive messages in their music that draws from the religion.

 

      The band consists of Hunter Burris (guitar), Kevin Wysocki (drums), Brett Lackey (bass), David Coman (vocals) and David Woznicki (guitar). The band is influenced by As I Lay Dying, Lamb of God, August Burns Read and Underoath.

      Their upcoming EP, The Illusion of Depth, is filled with face-melting melodies, intense breakdowns and meaningful, postive messages in their lyrics. The EP was recorded at JTW Studios. "Recording at JTW was amazing. Joel, who runs the studio, is one of the most down to earth guys we know, and he knows what he's doing. We couldn't have gotten an EP that sounded this good from any other studio." Says the band.

      The band hopes to play an inhuman amount of shows and an even larger amount of fans. They want to release a full-length later this year and hope to get signed.
