Blending aggressive arrangements with hook-filled melodies, SHANE HINES AND THE TRANCE have found a way to get inside listeners heads -- for good. Laced with elements of British rock, The Glory Journal is an album that surprises, sometimes shocks, and moves you to new places.
Songs like "Way Up" and "We Can Never Be" have you singing every word and clenching your fist while wondering how the band got so close to your own little world. Impassioned wrath with metaphorical and lyrical nakedness are unveiled with What a Beautiful Day. You're enveloped in exquisite torment that gives way with searing honesty, and a brave insistence of freedom from the past. All the while your head will bob, and you'll crave the driving sound that's enmeshed with a voice that is as compelling as it is addicting.
Shane Hines (lead vocals, lead guitar, song writer) and Brian "Mr. Thumbs" Keating (bass, vocals) met while touring with other bands, gelled and have masterfully created The Glory Journal, which was recorded entirely through online donations from fans and supporters. The Glory Journal is already gaining momentum - even before the masters were finished. "Way Up" was a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and online blogs such as The Daily Vault and Top 40-Charts have been saluting the SHANE HINES AND THE TRANCES successful excursion.
With a resume that reads like any of your favorite major label breakout bands, including key placements on MTV shows such as "The Hills" and "The Real World,” D.C. area-based SHANE HINES AND THE TRANCE are moving at a pace that will undoubtedly land them on your iPod before your best friend can call to tell you they heard of the band first.
