Through the Darkness

All of us experience an emptiness that seems impossible to fill during the course of our lives. We lose our way, fall off the desired path and get caught up in things that constrict our visions of life, our dreams into something so small and irrelevant that we may begin to lose all hope. During these trying times some seek shelter and solitude for progress while others dive into an alien world that they had never known while reaching for a savior in absolute chaos. However, all of us must learn that change will always be here and that we must not fall during these struggles but realize the natural order of life and let everything fall into place one piece at a time.

Tyler Gathercoal, main songwriter and percussion artist, has been rocking the drums since he was just 3 years old. Growing up in Greene County, IA, Tyler was known for his talent in writing drum solos. In 2009 the band, eventually known as Through the Darkness, was started when the energetic patterns of Tyler's drumming met with the guitars of Kristopher James and Matt Corrigan. Once the soaring vocals of Andrew Gathercoal joined them they were able to play small shows in Greene and surrounding counties.

Through the Darkness, known for their heavy approach to rock, have a genre-defying setlist that once ranged from instrumental tracks to brutal metal accompanied by the distorted vocal talents of Andrew. However, 2013 shows the progression of the band's sound. Since then bassist Joe Swanson, Cameron Stevens--a second vocalist, and new lead guitarist (to replace Matt), Justin Saffell have teamed up with the rest of the band and together have played small venues in Des Moines and are able to release their first professional recorded EP to the public.
