Eighteen Visions, Twelve Dates

Formed in 1995 by frontman James Hart and original drummer Ken Floyd, Eighteen Visions cut their teeth in hometown Orange County's fertile band breeding ground. With their unique sense of style and a sound to match, they established themselves at the forefront of an emerging metalcore scene along with O.C. brethren Bleeding Through, Atreyu and Throwdown (formerly featuring Floyd and guitarist Keith Barney). The final piece of the Eighteen Visions puzzle was added after recording Obsession in late 2003 with Floyd picking up the axe and Jason Shrout of Kansas City's Saved by Grace taking over on drums.

Together with producer Mudrock (Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold), Eighteen Visions has crafted an album that destroys any preconceived notions and refuses the confines of any particular genre. The perfect balance between Eighteen Visions' metalcore roots and good old fashioned rock. There is no better example of Eighteen Visions' evolved sound than new single “I Let Go” released on the 4th April 2005. Barney's multi-layered guitars provide a rich sonic landscape as the pulsing beats of Floyd and bassist Mick Morris propel the song forward. Hart's vocals range from pure rock harmony to pure core screaming.

The charismatic and versatile Eighteen Visions brought flair and a sense of style to the metalcore scene. With the release of Obsession, they have an album that perfectly captures their message. Stand out single 'I Let Go' is simply stunning and show a band who have matured into a world class act. UK fans will be able to see Eighteen Visions tear up the stage on the tour this March:
