Emerging from Dayton, Ohio in 2010, Like Moths to Flames hit the ground running from their inception and haven’t had the time to look back.
The band came together after singer Chris Roetter (formerly of Agraceful
) and bassist Aaron Evans (of TerraFirma) decided to collaborate after their respective bands had broken up. Not wasting any time, the two recruited guitarists Zach Huston and Eli Ford and drummer Lance Greenfield, and by the end of the year the band had signed to Rise Records
and released its Sweet Talker EP. In 2011, the band made its full-length debut on Rise
with When We Don’t Exist, which found the fledgling metalcore outfit breaking onto the Billboard Heatseekers chart with its bludgeoning, breakdown-heavy sound. Recorded with Will Putney at The Machine Shop in Hoboken, New Jersey, An Eye for An Eye dropped in 2013, followed in 2015 by The Dying Things We Live For. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
