Harris Grade

Harris Grade is a Southern California independent alternative rock band best known for their energetic live shows and DIY ethos. The band was originally formed in 2006 by guitarists Caleb Healey and Alex Von Hollen and later joined forces with lead vocalist Robyn August, bass/backup vocalist Jason Friday, and drummer Greg Fulleman in 2008. Since coming together the band has released two EPs and one full length album, most recently releasing Sea In You EP as a free download last month.

The EP, produced by Erik Ron (Saosin, Panic! At The Disco, Foxy Shazam, D.R.U.G.S.), spotlights the band's electric energy and chemistry as the quintet fires up memories of Trapt and Anberlin by smashing infectious hooks, pulsating drums, and lavish guitar licks seamlessly together. The first two tracks, "Mission:Control" and "How to Catch the Bullet", show the band's alternative radio ready chops and the finale, "Oceans", reveals an equally mainstream mindset, but for the softer side of the brain.

Last week the band released the video for "Mission:Control" that features clips from their spastic live shows, fire, and the members smashing shit in a vacant lot.
