I THE COLOSSUS
ROCK - Hard Rock/Metal
I, The Colossus, is an up and coming band from the Chicago area with a unique melodic hardcore sound. I, The Colossus was originally created as a studio band by Trey Martin, Frank Monte, and Dan Mayer in November of 2013. In mid-December it was decided by the band to add a guitarist, Jake Wold, to the band and get out of the studio and become a live group. It was intended to keep this four-piece hardcore idea, but they felt limited in some aspects of only having one guitarist. In February of 2014 they had officially added one more band member, Seth Johnson, a guitarist with traditional vocal training. I, The Colossus was now a complete five-piece band. The name I, The Colossus was created by the original members of the group with the idea that anyone can be bigger than they are and anyone can become a great impact on the world. I, The Colossus strives to influence their fans to reach for their goals such as they have and utilize every ounce of potential they have. They are influenced by Chicago area bands that have become big in the scene such as Sworn In and The Color Morale. While all members have experience with other bands and genre types, they have joined together to collaborate and bring more recognition to the hardcore genre locally then nationally.
I, The Colossus released their debut single “Chapters” in February 2014 and have received positive feedback on the track. They have extremely high hopes for the rest of 2014. They plan to release their debut EP later this year. I, The Colossus is the product of Arbor Media group, and all rights are reserved to I, The Colossus and Arbor Media.
