Manny and Paul originally formed a band, Last Chance, at Harlandale High School in San Antonio to enter a talent show. They developed some songs and won their first talent show. The guys were instantly hooked on performing live shows. Since then, these guys drew the attention of everyone they cross paths with including: colleges; churches; the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender (GLBT) scene; animal rights activists; and tattoo conventions.
Open Chapter is a word of mouth phenomenon. Open Chapter is often asked how they came up with their name. Manny and Paul are Shinedown fans and really like the song “Fly from the Inside”. In the song the lyrics say, “I am focused on what I am after, the key to the next open chapter.” Paul says, “It made sense to name the band Open Chapter to signify the end of the Last Chance and the beginning of something new.” The music itself is reminiscent of grunge intertwined with Nu-Metal.
It has a dark quality relying heavily on angst-filled lyrics, reverberated vocals, feedback and drums. Every song is a strong presentations and in-your-face. The sound is highly addictive. The lyrics are a mix of emotion.
“Our songs really mirror situations or time frames in our lives...some good, some really bad,” says Manny. The music and lyrics of Open Chapter are magnets. Open Chapter’s debut album titled “falling to be held” was released early 2008 on Larissa Records with independent distribution through Select-O-Hits of Nashville. More people find Open Chapter everyday because the word is spreading fast on the internet and airwaves. http://www.myspace.com/openchapter Read more on Last.fm.
