With popular songs that are catching peoples interest there is a high anticipation for the album release that is currently being recorded at Sessions on the River by producer Chris Curry.
Their music is very diverse, from strong lyrics and great harmonies like ''Something's Are Better Than the Truth'' to songs that grind it out like ''Open Up Your Eyes'' at any one moment you're sure to get chills down to the bottom of your skin to that feeling of power from in your face rock that makes you want to scream.
Amber Reings is fronted with two very accomplished guitar players, Nick who is also the lead vocalist and Enzo Herrera. Nick has played in Artificial Reality until there demise along with Chris Rowlands the bass player, who came to Amber Reigns. Nick played on the track ''Where My Dog'' a rap song for the Artist Amala who has played with Heart.
Josh and Enzo have been playing together for almost 8 years. Coming from accomplished bands such as After The Fall, Social Imbalance and probably the most recognizable Zombie Inc, the chemistry was there from the start. Enzo has written and recorded songs for Intercede International's documentaries to spread awareness of charitable needs around the world in Canada. The back bone of this group is Josh Humphrey. With his very raw drum style, it brings true emotion to every song written.
