Tracing the story of Dirtswitch back to their beginnings in the cold winter of 2009, the four founding members were just gazing at what would soon prove to be the biggest ride of their lives. A big wave.
After the birth of “Restraints”, the band soon discovered a presence overloaded with electrifying energy, uniting them in their passion for music and delivering a live spectacle for all those who are willing to set their spirit free. After receiving praise from fans and critics alike, both home and abroad, the band turned to the studio and recorded their debut album, 'Phoenix Down'. The album was released on Sept. 7th, 2011.
Heavily influenced by the grunge, modern rock and post-grunge artists of the past two decades, such as Alter Bridge, Soundgarden, King’s X and Shinedown, the band’s trademark sound is comprised of heavy, down-tuned riffs combined with powerful and memorable vocal lines.
Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Every Dirtswitch song bears a mark of the element from which it was born.
Every song tells a story of its making. But make no mistake. These songs were made to be loud.
