The Band Based out of Portland, Maine, Whitcomb is comprised of veterans of the local music scene: Sean Libby and Andy Beavis on guitars, Ryan Fleming on bass, Mark Sayer on drums, and vocalist Brant Dadaleares. Former members of local rock bands The End Of Everything, The Horror, Twitchboy, Rare Form, Vertigod, and Tripe. Together they've created something intense and original, both heavy and melodic, with multiple layers of sound. The Man The band’s name, as well as Dadaleares’ lyrics, come from the 19th-century poet James Whitcomb Riley. While more famous for writing children’s poetry, personal tragedy caused Riley to descend into alcoholism and madness, and his poetry took a much darker bent.

It is from here that Whitcomb pulls their inspiration—perfect for the epic songs the band writes, and testament to the power of art that century-old poetry can impact and influence a heavy rock band to create something of their own. The Sound Art and poetry aside, Whitcomb is a loud rock band. With influences from Tool to the Deftones, Faith No More, Queens of the Stone Age, and Radiohead, they have stepped up and created a sound every bit as large. The music proves dark and melodious, at times a wall of sound big enough to fill a stadium, while at other times invoking a small and smoky barroom. While the vocals weave a tapestry of Riley’s poems overhead, a knowing reminder that this is truly the soundtrack of a man’s descent into madness, it's the way the band anchors the words to darkened rhythms that provides the basis of the sound.
