Established in Cape Coral, FL in 2000 by vocalist John Sheldon, guitarist Keith Finnell, and keyboardist Steve Chin, EkoTren has carved their name deep into the scene. With the later additions of drummer Eric Pottle and bassist Derek DeSantis, the quintet has toured the state extensively, off of two EPs, ‘The Tables Have Turned’ (2006) and ‘Destroying the American Dream’ (2007) and have shared stages with the likes of Saliva, Flyleaf, Nonpoint, Diecast, Ankla and more.

After seven years of dedication, the band signed with Blind Prophecy Records in September 2007 and immediately hit the studio with acclaimed producer Paul Trust (Diecast, Endo) to craft their first full-length album, ‘Light the Fire’, available worldwide in early 2008. Steered by melody and driven by metal, the 11-track effort breathes new life into fan favorites like “The Tables Have Turned” and displays brand new tracks in EkoTren’s signature style.

After the international release of the album, EkoTren aims to bring their unique breed of metal to the masses with extensive touring. Catch EkoTren on tour with Ill Nino late January!
