Cross The Divide
One of the fastest growing, and most in-demand original artists in New England is southern New Hampshire-based Cross the Divide. The three-member band combines heavy guitar riffs and melodic vocals to produce a unique blend of progressive and hard rock styles served up onstage with their engaging, high-energy performance. In an increasingly superficial era, Cross the Divide brings not only sweet guitar licks and driving bass lines, but also deep lyrical content driving home themes of hope, strength, and justice. The band has coined their own sub-genre for their sound: Storm Rock, which they define as “intense technical rock with deep lyrical themes”.
Though the band has been in existence since September 2010, Cross the Divide did not truly begin to define itself in the industry until mid-2014 when guitarist, Zac and bassist, Chase welcomed their hard hitting drummer Jake French into the project. Since that time, the band has played alongside many major artists including Godsmack, Pop Evil, Seether, Skillet, 10 Years, Buckcherry, Escape the Fate, Starset, Islander, For Today, Third Day, We As Human, 3 Years Hollow, and many more.
Cross the Divide is currently pulling double duty crafting an arsenal of genre driving original songs while playing out as often as they are able to be booked, strategically placing themselves at venues all over. The band plans to release a new, full-length studio album in mid-2016 featuring the band’s hit single “The Perfect Storm” which will be on FM broadcast radio across the USA beginning in late 2015 extending into spring 2016.
