In a small bedroom in San Diego, plastered with posters of favorite bands, ticket stub memories, and a drum set that was bought at a local swap meet for fifty bucks, four teenage friends were born into a future of fast paced, melodic punk. Out of the need for a release of creativity and aggression, Before Today was formed in December of 1998. Since then, the band has been striving on opportunities to explode out of their 10x10 foot practice room onto any stage possible. Their mixture of poetic lyrics, which focus on ideas of self improvement and positive progression, are combined with complex guitar and vocal melodies to create a powerful sound that is both aggressive and refreshingly clean. Their energy is fueled by a creative and energetic rhythm section to match their personalities. A strong diversity of influences becomes apparent as you listen to the many different elements in their songs. After signing with Equal Vision in December of 2003, the band, formerly known as “Early Times”, decided to change their name due to copyright issues. Before Today is an old song title of theirs, which they felt related most to their former name. They are currently writing songs for their debut full-length album, which is due to be released by Equal Vision this summer. They are looking forward to touring and the opportunity to spread their music to as many people as possible. The band is always striving to improve themselves with every song they write and playing each show with a goal to top their last one. Be sure to check them out when they come through your town.
