Formed during the winter of 2008 in the suburbs of Phoenix, AZ, the boys of A.S.A. have released four studio EP’s with current lead singer, Nick Johnson, embarked on numerous tours spanning more than 50 cities across the United States, met thousands of incredible supporters, and continue to display their best work with each new release and live performance. “In one simple word, A Step Ahead means ‘family’,” according to Johnson. “We started this band just wanting to play a few shows. I could have never imagined that we would tour the country, make so many incredible memories, and continue this success for so many years.”
Upon listening to A Step Ahead, subtleties of pop-punk greats such as New Found Glory, Blink-182, The Starting Line, Hit the Lights, and Simple Plan are sure to make their respective appearances in the band’s music style. Within their lyrics, A Step Ahead aims to bring a positive influence on their fans, not only in addressing the importance of friends, family, dedication, and self-empowerment, but in relating to everyday struggles and emphasizing that no one is truly alone. “Even in the most serious of circumstances, we like to find the positives,” says guitarist and vocalist, Colin Becker.
