(Nashville, Tenn.) May 15th, 2008 – The metal core band I Am Terrified has inked a recording deal with Mono-Vs-Stereo and will unveil their six-song EP digitally early July via iTunes and at live shows.
The Birmingham-based quintet includes the three founding members, guitarist Jeremy Folse, vocalist and main songwriter Patrick Schefano, and Joel Bailey on drums, with bassist Dustin Carter and guitarist Brandon Henderson rounding out the mix. No stranger to touring, the band has spent over six years worth of constant gigs and draws upwards of 1,000 fans per show. They’ve shared the stage with the likes of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, The Showdown, Anberlin, August Burns Red, As I Lay Dying, As Cities Burn, Inhale Exhale, and Mychildren Mybride.
All three founding members come from southern Baptist church roots and their music reflects both those traditional ties, as well as the tastes of emo-loving girlfriends. Song titles on the forthcoming EP include the rock-driven “Some Glad Morning,” “Heaven Knocking, Hell Rising,” the classic rock rhythms of “Velvet Thunder,” as well as “Falling on Everlasting,” “To the Service,” and “The Parting.”
The band, who performed under the name Fixed Til Tuesday up till a year ago, changed their name to I Am Terrified with the motivation Folse explains as, “the desire to give God straight-up worship, and to show the love of Christ to every kid we can possibly reach.” Thus the new name was pulled direct from the Bible scripture Job 23:14-15: “He carries out his decree against me, and many such plans he still has in store. That is why I am terrified before him; when I think of all this, I fear him.”
I Am Terrified is already seeing great response with their video for “Heaven Knocking” cracking the Top 10 video play list on TVU, alongside of videos by Demon Hunter, Hawk Nelson, and Leeland. Fans can anticipate I Am Terrified out on tour this summer with Blessed Is He, performances at the Ichthus and Cornerstone Festivals, as well as additional touring plans in works for 2008.
