About the ArtistHailing from the Boston suburbs, members of the hard-rocking band Final Hour bring a working-class attitude to songs about relationships, betrayal, disappointment and personal triumph. And it’s no wonder.
The quartet has been laboring in the vineyards of Boston and Providence area clubs for the past seven years, honing an original sound that draws from such influences as Tool, Korn and Chevelle.
Before that, three of the original members worked in the same auto parts warehouse, moving boxes of brake rotors while they schemed over their breakout CD "Unseen."
Behind charismatic frontman and vocalist Caleb Mayben, the quartet has more than arrived since then. Their 2006 release, peppered with memorable riffs, lyrical melodies and relevant lyrics, has led to greater recognition than ever and one of the busiest gigging periods in Final Hour’s history.
Underpinned by the virtuosic guitar playing of Andy James, the driving bass of David Foster and the drumming of John Pelletier, Final Hour’s music has been heard at a number of high-profile New England venues including the Tweeter Center for The Performing Arts, Boston’s Hard Rock Café and Cambridge’s TT The Bear’s Place and the Middle East.
Two of the band’s current members, Foster and Mayben, previously played in the alternative rock band Out Of Focus before re-emerging with James as the present-day Final Hour. James, a veteran of blues and southern rock, has also performed with the band "Cold Train" and his own original blues outfit "The Andy James Band."
At the end of 2007, Final Hour had need for a new drummer. Pelletier was the hands-down winner based on an audition and has kept the beat ever since. Pelletier previously played with the bands Bostos and All In bringing a new edge and pop to new music.
With a solid core and a seemingly inexhaustible stream of original tunes, Final Hour has had little trouble keeping fans engaged. Even at far-flung venues, band members are often greeted by fans mouthing back the lyrics to favorite tunes like "Finish Line," "Craving You" and title track "Unseen."
As 2008 dawns, Final Hour is far from nearing the finish line as their music rides the wave of an expanding fan base and concert schedule.
