(OP) Arise As Kings has announced that they have changed their name to Left Behind.
The band had this to say about the name change, "We have a few reasons for this change. First of all, we have grown so much and matured a great deal in the past year and a half of being a band, to the point where Arise As Kings no longer fits our music, our mindset, or us anymore. We also wanted a fresh, brand new start. A new chapter of our music and of our lives."
The band is offering fans a free download of their newest single "Haunted."
The band's next single "No Forgiveness" features Jordan Bradley (aka Bone) from Embracer.
The group is currently finishing their first EP as Left Behind with Brette Ciamarra at Studio 344 in late January, and releasing a music video shortly afterwards.
Hailing from Charleston, West Virginia, Left Behind is a band comprised of Anthony "Peppy" Olick, Zak Rea, Bryan Rea, Cade Lewis, and Jordan Lorea. Formed in 2012, the band effortlessly blends the harsh style of East Coast Hardcore with the raw power of Midwest Metalcore and Nü Metal along with multiple other influences, creating an incredible sound unlike anything else out there. Needless to say, with all of the developments the band is bringing in the coming year, Left Behind is a band you should not let escape your radar.
