It all began in the spring semester of 2004 at Appalachian State University. Jesse (singer/guitarist) met Bryan (drummer) in result of some musical similarities. These two have an amazing chemistry that is really the core of what Defending Brooklyn is. They began writing songs in the LLC building at ASU, found a bassist, and 4 months later released The Death Sessions EP.Not too long after Paul (synthesizer) was added to the band and a new batch of songs were written and released as The Find.
With this EP Defending Brooklyn acquired a large, dedicated following by playing local shows in Boone and surrounding cities. They shared stages with national acts like He Is Legend ( Solid State ) and Classic Case (Fearless). Then they accomplished their first East Coast tour from VA to NY. With all of this under their belt, new material written, and a record deal with Split Rail Records, anything can happen.
They are planning on an August release date for their album, "What You Wish For." Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
