Not many bands can handle the difficulties of being part of Baltimore's large and diverse music scene, Roll It Over was formed from the ashes of several of Maryland's fine acts. To be able to find the right group of people create music that inspires and connects with the audience is an incredible thing. Formed in April of 2011, Roll It Over immediately began constructing songs comprised of big choruses and catchy guitar riffs. With the sound that takes it's influences from 70's arena rock, 80's progressive music, and 90's alternative rock, the band has worked hard to build a sound that is unique, yet easily accessible.
The band, though suffering many line-up changes, still managed to build a fan base though out the Mid-Atlantic region and has shared the stage with many well known acts like Saving Abel, 12 Stones, Hurt, Smile Empty Soul, and Taproot. The band finally found their line-up in Spring 2012. With the line-up set, the band went into the studio to record their debut EP 'Dawning on the Red Streets' which was released in January 2013.
The EP, which was recorded at Fairgreen Studio, features 5 songs written by the bands current line-up. Each song was carefully constructed to create atmosphere and feeling, which can be felt through the melodic vocal and guitar arrangements, and the raw energy provided by the bands powerful rhythm section. That, coupled with hard work of producers Kenny Kingsborough and Brian Melvin, led to what the band feels is their finest work to date.
The band strives to create powerful, catchy music that everyone can be immersed in. It's easy to be labeled as a certain genre but Roll It Over aims to bend those rules and incorporate any and all styles of music into it's ever-growing sound. With tour dates lined up though out Spring and Summer 2013, and a full length album in the works, Roll It Over is force to be reckoned with.
'Dawning on the Red Streets' EP is now available on all Major Digital Retailers including Itunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Zune.
