CORE is not your average hard rock band. Hailing from South Dakota they are sure to be the next big thing to come out of the midwest. For fans of Coheed & Cambria, Alter Bridge and 10 Years, CORE approach songwriting honestly and are dedicated passionate musicians. This power trio provides a tight rhythm section that produces a brutal sound, balanced by tender yet powerful vocal harmonies reminiscent of Layne Staley and Kevin Martin. Equal parts heavy riffs and delicate acoustics, CORE‘s music is emotionally charged and unique.
They have opened for popular national acts SHINEDOWN, SEVENDUST, ALTER BRIDGE, BUCKCHERRY, HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD, SALIVA, TRAPT, RED, SAVING ABEL, POP EVIL, CANDLEBOX, POWERMAN 5000, ORGY, EVE TO ADAM, CANDLELIGHT RED, SEBASTIAN BACH, EVAN’S BLUE, NEW MEDICINE, CAVO, DAYS OF THE NEW, SEASON’S AFTER, WES BORELAND, THE DREAMING, CINDER ROAD, DROPPING DAYLIGHT, & CHRIS VOLZ as well as many others.
