About alamance

Budd Lake, NJ

Alamance is a very remarkable young band. They are in the process of finishing their third release, titled "Moving On", which is due out 07-08. The first single off their new EP, "Waiting On You," is being released in early July. They've been playing tour dates all over the country, and are gearing up for their second summer on Vans Warped Tour. Great for a band who is barely of driving age, which took the name Alamance from an RV crash they had in Alamance NC on the way to a show
Josh Sorhagen (lead vocals and guitar) started playing guitar at the age of 9. He went to the same school as Erick Woltz (guitar and backing vocals), who started taking lessons from Sorhagen's guitar instructor. They started playing together in 2001, and have had numerous lineup changes since then. However, they eventually found the missing piece when they asked Mike Lisa (drums and backing vocals) to join the band in October 2006. Alamance's first album, was released and recorded in early 2005. Shortly after they released their record, Alamance got their first big break. They were actually on vacation and received a call from a casting director at MTV. She had discovered the band on Purevolume, and wanted them to appear on a "Back To School" episode of TRL with Fall Out Boy. The guys couldn't turn down the opportunity, and they came back early from their vacation to shoot the episode
In 2006, Alamance was discovered when Mike Rodriguez(Smack In The Face Records) came across the band while he was scouting talent for Vans Warped Tour. He recruited them to play the East Coast Indic Stage for the tour, and later signed them to his newest acquisition "Smack In The Face Records". They recorded Drowning Between Life And Lies and released it on the label in June 2006. The record was produced by Rob Freeman ( writer, vocals and guitar in Hidden In Plain View). The lead track off this record, "The Why In Y," has received hundred of thousands of plays online. The second track and ep title "Drowning Between Life and Lies" is currently being featured on the Domino's Pizza website
Not only has the band been constantly writing and recording over the past few years, but they have been touring extensively as well. They have spend the past few 4th of July holidays playing for thousands of U.S. Troops at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany, and were invited to come hack again this year as well. They have shared stages with many different bands such as My Chemical Romance, Days of the New, Teddy Geiger, The Jonas Brothers, Last November, The Pilot, and Hidden In Plain View and Houston Calls. Also, they have performed hip-hop icon Darryl McDaniels of Run D.M.C. on several occasions
Alamance in now gearing up for the release of Moving On, produced by Kenny Gioia (Bayside, Cute Is What We Aim For, Mandy Moore, Lee Ann Womack, Marcy Playground, LFO) and Rob Freeman(Houston Calls, Cobra Starship, Hidden In Plain View) and they're very excited about the new material. The first single off the EP is, “Waiting On You," and it can now be purchased on the band's MySpace page ( "The new music shows much more musical depth and expression," says Sorhagen. "It's new and original...a very different style." The new EP will be digitally released spring 08
