Wauchula, Florida is a community much better known for orange groves and phosphate mines, than stage destroying modern rock bands. Out of a nearly 20 year bond, a group of friends formed a band in order to put their town on the map for a whole different reason. After spending years recording music and heavily touring regionally in Florida, Since October made a decision to take the band to the next level with full time touring and enlistment of acclaimed producer Travis Wyrick (P.O.D, Disciple, Spoken, Pillar) to record a full length record. The album “Gasping For Hope” received national attention and immediately provided the band with an opportunity to jump back in the studio with Wyrick to work on additional songs for a national debut release on Tooth & Nail Records. The band, with an already impressive tour history behind them, hits the road in February with Seventh Day Slumber and will tour non-stop though ’08.

Something For Metalheads and Soft Rockers Alike| Posted September 29, 2008
At first blush, Since October is your average Linkin Park-esque, modern rock outfit with a knack for rap vocals and giving your parents a headache. The band’s album, This is My Heart, boasts rhymes so loud and riffs so fierce they’d make P.O.D. proud. (Coincidentally, Since October’s release was produced by Travis Wyrick, who has produced much of P.O.D.’s work.)
“My Heart,” the record’s opening track, sets a tone of some of the hardest stuff you’ll ever hear from a group of 20-something small-town Christians with tattoos and/or dreadlocks. “Beautiful” and “Disaster” continue in that vein, with semi-repetitive but satisfying lyrical themes, like finding beauty in the imperfect and God’s unending grace. There are breaks in that enjoyable hard-rocking monotony, though, as in “In This Moment” and “Waiting.”
If you appreciate Linkin Park, P.O.D. and their contemporaries, then this is a band you ought to check out. But you’ll want to leave the softer tracks for listeners with more sensitive ears. Here, Since October is far from the rap-rocking norm. These songs are lush, melodic and downright pretty—a style even the most talented rap-tinged alt-rock bands have trouble conquering. But Since October has done so, and in this, listeners learn that the band is at its best when the members rest their vocal cords and calm down. –Christy Gordon

Great band!| Posted September 20, 2010
Since October is one of the best bands out there. They are completely honest about their beliefs and will not bend to the world's way. Granted their music does sound a little bit like Disciples, but the difference is Since October thinks through the practicality of their lines and does not have awkward words input between great lyrics. I cannot say this about their 2010 cd however, but this cd is full of professional grade material and extent guitar segments.
Great CD| Posted July 17, 2009
I just recently heard of this band, and I love them! They remind of Decyfer Down and P.O.D. in a way. Their songs Guilty and Disaster are completely awesome! I highly recommend you check out this band and album, SOON!
