Intertwined on the Verge of Big Things
Fresh off a regional tour with nu metal rock group Taproot, one of Grand Junction's biggest local bands is set for a homecoming gig tomorrow night at the Mesa Theater and Club.
The band, of course, is Intertwined. Since their formation in 2004 they have grown steadily. The alt rock band with hints of metal has released multiple albums and toured extensively. What's next for the band? Making a career out of playing music full time.
Don't be too surprised when it happens.
"Since last playing the Mesa Theater we have grown to a new level," says Intertwined guitarist Colin Cummings. "Touring with Taproot helped Intertwined to ascend some of the more trivial problems and to focus on our mutual goal; to create and play music for a living. Every one of us feels more certain about that goal than ever now."
Touring in different parts of the country with Taproot and Boy Hits Car has been a great experience for Cummings and the rest of the band. From partying with Texas club owners to stoping by the memorial for Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell, the band has grown a lot. Not only has their fan base increased, but Intertwined now feel more confident about their sound and appeal as a band.
"It's really neat to know that we are bringing a style and a sound to people who have never heard anything like us," Cummings said. "One of the nicest surprises was hearing people say 'I've never heard anything like you guys, and you kicked some major ass!'"
For tomorrow's show expect a refined ass kicking power punch from Intertwined.
"Being on the road and seeing what goes into being a 'professional' in the industry has taught us a lot," Cummings said.
From stage set up to the performance itself, Intertwined is dialed in and ready to take the band to new heights.
You can catch Intertwined with Taproot, Boy Hits Car, and XFactor1 tomorrow night (3/8/13) at the Mesa Theater. Tickets are $10 in advance and $13 the day of the show.
