With a sound that falls directly in line with the legions of post-Fall Out Boy emo/pop-punk bands (think Panic!
at the Disco's vocals over FOB's hooks), Scenes from a Movie have their roots in Charleston, WV, centered on a pair of high-school friends, vocalist/bassist Tony Bush and guitarist Jon Ewing. The two first met at school and played in a few bands together before graduation, and individual college plans found them going their separate ways. Ewing stayed close to home, enrolling at the University of Charleston, where he soon met guitarist Luke Del Papa, and together they began getting a new band organized. At first, the process proved to be a pain, with the guys hitting various dead ends, but momentum picked up when Ewing eventually convinced his ol' buddy Bush to drop out of school (he had been attending Bowling Green State University near Toledo, OH) and join up with them. With the final additions of drummer Jared Miller and bassist Adam Triplett (allowing Bush to concentrate fully on vocals), Scenes from a Movie were born. The quartet got to work, and local shows and minor tours soon turned into bigger opening spots alongside bands like the Starting Line, Thursday, and Boys Like Girls. The band signed to One Big Spark/East West in mid-2006 and began recording its debut. They snagged a bunch of dates performing on the 2007 summer Warped Tour, which coupled nicely with the July release of their album, The Pulse. Following Warped, Scenes from a Movie hit the road with Permanent ME and the Junior Varsity. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi
