Formed in 2006 by vocalist Chris Green and drummer Nathan Weaver then later joined by bass player Jake West, Branded with Fear quickly gained a strong local following in their home state of Georgia. Starting as a cover band playing music by modern rock bands such as Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Chevelle, Godsmack and many more. After several shows they started adding original songs into their set and received positive feedback from the crowd and so began the transformation from cover band to original act. In the almost 4 years of experience, Branded with Fear has toured up and down the East Coast and has opened for numerous national acts such as:
Nonpoint, Cavo, 12 Stones, Boy Hits Car, Vast, Civil Twilight, Royal Bliss, A New Revolution, Program The Dead, Philler & a special acoustic show with Angie Aparo, establishing them as a respected regional act from Atlanta. They have been featured on and worked with the local radio stations; Project 961, 99x & Rock 100.5 on several occasions and have built a strong relationship with local media such as The Silver Tongue Online.
The name Branded with Fear was derived from the idea of being told not to follow your dreams and co-exist in a world of normality, and from that idea came the bands quote that can be found on all websites and banners "WE WERE SHOCKED WITH STATISTICS...WE WERE WATERED DOWN WITH REALISM...WE WERE SCARRED WITH IMPROBABILITIES...WE WERE BRANDED WITH FEAR"
