Dave’s coming along was no guess-work, the duo had played in a band before and were no strangers to the hardcore scene. After a brief to-the-point phone conversation, For The Love Of was a go-ahead project. After returning home and countless hours trying to find musicians with the same drive and passion as themselves, Andrew found the voice that he had been looking for. This voice came in the form of Brittany Ashley, although Brittany has never staged her talents before, she is no hop on the band-wagon singer.
Brittany grew up listening to metalcore acts, so don’t let the lipstick fool you. After just an acapelo song during a late night hangout it was apparent she would be the lighter side. So the three started writing vigorously, but still a couple pieces of the puzzle was missing. This is when Andrew turned to his childhood friend Morgan Ireson in hopes for an answer.
Morgan Ireson had been playing guitar for quite some time when Andrew confronted him about the ordeal, but it wasn’t a guitarist he was looking for. Asking someone to play an instrument they have never touched before in their life is a little risky, but once in hand Morgan took to the bass as if he had played for years. Morgan’s hardcore roots also go back to earlier years so the music came as second nature. One last void, a drummer.
After searching around for a drummer to fit their style, there was no one it seemed. After being down on his luck Andrew messaged then stranger, Michael Cress, after seeing just a picture of him and his kit on MySpace, well that proved to be picture perfect. Andrew and Michael started discussing music and it seemed to be the providing factor for Michael’s joining of the band. So it was a done deal, the vision completed, and time for work.
For The Love Of is a fresh sound combining a hardcore feel with a pop sing along state it seems this band is not slowing down. With plans on giving their fans something real, For The Love Of will be releasing their debut Ep late in 2010. In the mean time they will be playing shows wherever possible, bringing you energy filled live experience that is sure not to disappoint. So come out sing along and have fun with Farewell Atlantis!
