Manifesting the broad range of human emotions into a musical form is never an easy task, but it is something that Phoenix, Arizona's Tolerance does every day. Combining forceful and powerful guitars, pummeling rhythms, otherworldly noises, and vocals ranging from melodic and quiet to angry and loud, the music of Tolerance is the epitome of power, beauty, and originality. Impossible to pigeonhole and unable to be ignored, Tolerance has spent the last three and a half years building a huge buzz and becoming not only the "Best Arizona Modern/Hard Rock Band" (New Times Magazine) and #1 selling Arizona artist (Zia Records), but also one of the most talked-about young bands in the southwest. Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Cory Spotts, bassist Nathan Nash, guitarist Mark Buzard, and drummer/vocalist Atom Boyd, Tolerance has performed with countless major artists, including Sevendust, Jimmy Eat World, Incubus, Ours, Far, Blink 182, Primus, System of a Down, Pennywise, Boy Hits Car, Fenix TX, Simon Says, Suicidal Tendencies, and others, and has earned them slots at Van's Warped Tour and KEDJ/The Edge's That Damn Show. The band was asked by KEDJ to record tracks on KEDJ's "Best of Locals Only" compilation (for the last two years), as well as KZON's™Top Local Artist's compilation (in which their new single "Fade" was released to represent the disc in regional Wherehouse Music stores), and has won the title of "Best Modern / Hard Rock Band" in the Phoenix New Times Music Awards Showcase. Tolerance has recently completed their third album, titled "Faster Crashes Harder", a CD that takes them to the next level both musically and emotionally, and is not an experience to be missed.
