Aftershock Bar and Grill in Merriam, KS was practically leveled on August 25, 2011, after stunning performances by Evolove and Stitched up Heart. The bands are currently touring together for the Breaking Heartstrings Tour 2011.
The band name Evolove is a palindrome spelling “love” both forwards and backwards. They chose the name because it is the word “love”, and the fact that it is backwards and forwards forming a circle, symbolizes a never ending drive for them to fulfill what they love to do. Their passion and dedication comes through in their stage performance with high-energy vocals, and precise instrumentation.
The five piece band is comprised of vocalist Lucy Levinsohn, Billy Berman, bassist, Dave Corsile, guitarist, and Colby Jensen, guitarist. The band recently lost their drummer, which left Stitched up Heart’s drummer to fill in on the tour. They have been compared to a combination of the bands AFI, Rise Against, and Gwen Stephani. Although they definitely have their own individual sound, the term “pop-core” in reference to genre, as the band describes, is a perfect description. Over the course of about two years the band has evolved and come into the public eye with admirable drive and the undeniable talent to back it up. It’s no wonder they have come so far over a short period of time.
The band released a five song EP entitled Breaking Heartstrings in July of this year and began their first national tour this August. Tour dates are posted through September 26th of this year. The EP showcases five brand new songs including “Wake Up Call”, which has recently been released as a music video as well. The new EP is available exclusively at Hot Topic and Torid.
