A Chance at Revenge – Existence Denied ft. Wade C. from A Candle Lit City
Listen to the new song from A Chance at Revenge – Existence Denied ft. Wade C. from A Candle Lit City
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
We are from Round Top, Texas! We started playing music about 4 years ago and we quickly realized that this is what we want out of life. Since then, we have played as many shows as possible, recorded an EP, and made a music video. We’ve gotten this far from sheer will power. We enjoy playing music more than anything.
What do you have coming up? What are some of the new projects we can expect to see?
We’re currently on the verge of releasing our debut EP Existence and promoting that as much as we can. We’ll also be filming a new music video, shooting new promos, and playing a lot of shows.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
We’re currently promoting 2 songs off of our EP. Existence:Denied showcases our heavier side while The Attack (music video) shows people that we’re not just another breakdown band. We’d really like to stand out in our current scene and we feel like our EP really sounds different than a lot of today’s current music. We just wanna sound different and fit well within this “metal” genre.
How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?
Our music stands out because we pride ourselves on transitions. We hear a lot of bands that write different parts to a song and just shove them together, regardless of how it sounds. We make sure all of our songs have a progressive feel to them so they flow smoothly.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Getting your music heard. We come from the middle of nowhere (literally). We don’t have an actual music scene to be a part of. There are no local venues to play every weekend or much of a fan base to build. Our music isn’t too accepted where we’re from. So trying to get good shows in cities that we aren’t from can be challenging at times. However, we do consider ourselves lucky for the opportunity to make a name for ourselves in multiple cities. We play Austin, San Antonio, and Houston as often as possible.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Money. No band can ever hope to succeed without the proper funding. We all had to take a break from music for a while to get good paying jobs to help pay for gas, equipment, recording, promotion, videos, pics, and every other sort of band related expense. But we did it. We now have a music video, we can afford shows, and have reliable equipment.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Giving up. We all know bands that give up before they truly reach greatness. Just because you’re not where you want to be musically at this point in your life, doesn’t mean you won’t get there. It’s amazing to see how far dedication and hard work will get you. We’ve only been a band for almost a year and we’ve already achieved so much that we didn’t think we would in such a short time. We’re only getting started.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Play some shows! Build your fan base by showing people you can actually play. Good live music is where it’s at.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Playing shows and talking to people. There is no greater feeling than playing a show and have fans come up to you and tell you how much they enjoyed the show. Or how they listen to your band all the time. We really do love getting out there and meeting new people through the music we create.
Where can people visit you?
We have a Facebook, Twitter, Reverbnation, and a YouTube! Please talk to us! We love everyone and we appreciate any and all forms of support.
