CORE is not your average hard rock band. Hailing from South Dakota they are sure to be the next big thing to come out of the Midwest. For fans of Staind, Sevendust and Papa Roach, CORE approach songwriting honestly and are dedicated passionate musicians. This power trio provides a tight rhythm section that produces a brutal sound which is balanced by tender yet powerful vocal harmonies reminiscent of Layne Staley. Equal parts heavy riffs and delicate acoustics, CORE's music is emotionally charged and unique.
They have opened for popular national acts SHINEDOWN, BUCKCHERRY, SAVING ABEL, CANDLEBOX, RED, SALIVA, CAVO, DAYS OF THE NEW, WES BORELAND (of Limp Bizkit, and Black Light Burns), THE DREAMING, CINDER ROAD, DROPPING DAYLIGHT, & CHRIS VOLZ.
CORE have a devoted regional following and are currently playing out in support of their much anticipated Sophmore CD, "St. Judas Day Parade" released in July 2010. The singles "Dig", "Live Forever", and "You're So Fake" are currently getting airplay through out the midwest on active rock and college radio stations. CORE's debut album "We All Fall Down" earned rave reviews from TAXI & cdreview.com, citing the songs "Eisoptrophobia", "Confession", and "Calling John Coffey" as favorites. Both albums are available on ITUNES as well as CDBABY, RHAPSODY, V-CAST VERIZON, NAPSTER, CDREVIEW.COM, & DIGSTATION.
