ERRA is a four-piece progressive metalcore band hailing from Birmingham, Alabama that formed in 2009. Their namesake comes from Akkadian mythology and represents mayhem. The band, consisting of Ian Eubanks, Jesse Cash, Sean Price and Alex Ballew, solidified their technical sound after relentlessly practicing and writing. They take their influences from well respected groups like Misery Signals, Born of Osiris, As I Lay Dying and Saosin, and thrive on being creative and showcasing their talent through their intense live performances. ERRA takes great pleasure in offering their refreshing sound in a sometimes stale and over-saturated market. It's not about fashion or status; it's about using raw talent and energy to create genuine songs that will give hope to the listener.
Their album Augment was released on Tragic Hero Records and maintains their technical ability, while presenting songs with the potential to embrace a broader audience. The word «Augment» means to enhance or grow, which is what the band believes they have achieved on the album. «It's a very appropriate title based on everything we are trying to accomplish and all the growth we have gone through since our last record,» says guitarist Jesse Cash. «Nothing is taken away or watered down, only improved upon, and if anything, we accentuated all the parts that people wanted to hear more of this time around.»
Following the release of Augment was their debut EP «Moments of Clarity.» The band made necessary changes to assist their stylistic growth and progressive musical talents. Newly signed to Sumerian Records, ERRA hit the road with musical influences Born of Osiris in late 2014 playing for thousands of people across North America. Their first confirmed tour in 2015 is with metal phenomenon, August Burns Red. In Spring 2015, ERRA will be taking their talents to another level as they go to record their first studio album with Sumerian Records.
