Artist of the day: As Bridges Burn
Venice's As Bridges Burn may be a Florida metal band, but they infuse their deathly growls with heavy doses of crunchy grunge and classic rock. Their song Another Dose is a bit like Stone Temple Pilots with a dash of Tool; and they have a cover of Maroon 5's Harder To Breathe that sort of echoes Metallica's Sad But True.
The band -- vocalist Bobby Comeau, guitarists James Arnold and Judd Broome, drummer Matt Borror and bassist Patrick Thomas -- will release their first full-length, Sever The Ties, on Aug. 5. They'll celebrate with a CD release show Friday at the State Theatre, alongside Consinity and Cadaver Dolls. Tickets are $8. Click here for details.
