Like A Storm is currently on tour opening for Three Days Grace. The band is no stranger to touring after building a rabid fan base opening for the likes of Alter Bridge, Shinedown, Steel Panther and Slash. They will also be performing at the Food Truck and Rock Festival (September 20th), Sonic Boom (September 26th), Louder Than Life (October 3rd) and next year’s Shiprocked (January 18-22, 2016). The band has received acclaim for the live performances with Kerrang! calling their music, “Big, badass riffage and arena-sized choruses…” and Metal Hammer declaring, “Like A Storm are rewriting metal’s rulebook like never before.”
Known as one of the hardest working bands out there, Like A Storm fought hard to be heard. The New Zealand brothers— Chris Brooks [lead vocals, guitar, didgeridoo, keys/programming], Matt Brooks [vocals, lead guitar, keys/programming], and Kent Brooks [bass, vocals, keys/programming]— came to the United States knowing no one, and built a diehard and devoted fan-base by tirelessly touring. Their intense work ethic fosters the fertile creativity that is apparent in everything they do even today. Like A Storm write, perform, record and produce all of their records themselves.
Like A Storm is Chris Brooks [lead vocals, guitar, didgeridoo, keys/programming], Matt Brooks [vocals, lead guitar, keys/programming], Kent Brooks [bass, vocals, keys/programming] and Zach Wood [drums].
