Aterra Tale is a band dedicated to creating music that you can feel, music that can paint pictures within your mind and tell stories that you can bring to life with your own thoughts, feelings, and life experiences. The band—Scottie James (vocals), Ryan Diemer (guitars), Eric Kalina (bass), and Jason Mancini (drums)— was founded in 2012 and have been exponentially gaining momentum since their conception. Their sound is a tasteful blend of various forms of rock with soaring melodies that they have molded into their own brand of incredibly catchy music that is easy to get lost in.
The band's modern rock sound still has nods to emotional post-hardcore (Circa Survive) and maybe even a little pop-punk (Lagwagon), and having performed alongside national heavyweights like Throw the Fight, Parabelle, Three Years Hollow, Sevendust, Coheed & Cambria, Drowning Pool, Coal Chamber and SOIL, the quartet is clearly making a name for themselves in the Midwest. "Fire Away" is a propulsive, addictive new addition to the band's repertoire, already filled with riff-fueled bombast ("Hide and Seek") and atmospheric, introspective journeys ("Hollow Home").
In 2014, with the help of their fans and followers, Aterra Tale became the Ernie Ball Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival Battle of the Bands regional winners. The victory earned them a spot on stage alongside iconic bands such as Godsmack, Seether, Pop Evil, Buckcherry, and Escape the Fate; propelling their career to the regional level. Currently, the band is in the process of writing and recording their 3rd self produced full-length album due out in 2016.
“We know what we want out of our music, and we all work together with an almost brotherly-like chemistry to create it” says vocalist Scottie James. “We want to give people something more than what is currently out there. We want to create a connection with the fans and give them an experience at each show. Our band is about working hard and creating something unique and memorable with each song and I think our fans can feel it when we hit the stage, and that’s something special.”
Aterra Tale can be heard on all internet streaming services such as Pandora, Spotify, YouTube, iTunes, Google Play, Xbox Music, and Amazon. Be sure to request Aterra Tale on your favorite local radio stations!
