Going against the grain and standing up for what you believe in has always been a difficult thing to do. In today's current music scene, there are too many bands that are carbon copies of each other; lacking any kind of originality, conviction, or sincerity. Music should be about what sounds good and what is pure and from the heart. Whether you sing what you feel or play your instrument as if it were conveying your words, that is what music is really about.
Since the band's conception in May of 2005, Massachusetts' Shot Heard Around The World has been trying to do just that. The mission of the band since day one is to have as much fun as possible, and to play music that they enjoy. SHATW has always let the music speak for itself, without falling into any specific image or genre. After solidifying the band's line up, and four years of relentless touring and writing, the band went back into the studio spring of 2009 with producer, Jay Maas (Bane, Defeater, Verse) to record their second EP "How Empty We've Become". The EP illustrates the spectrum of the band's sound mixing an up-tempo aggressive and technical style with melodically sung chorus.
With an increasing fan base in the New England area, the band has been making a name for themselves with their energetic, and chaotic live performance. SHATW has had the chance to open for some of the biggest acts in the underground music scene including: Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Shadows Fall, The Chariot, Bury Your Dead, and many more! Be sure to catch the band as they tour the north-east and mid-west this summer in preparation for releasing their new EP,"How Empty We've Become", to be released this fall!
