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 Disturbed, Godsmack, Breaking Benjamin, Alter Bridge, Sevendust, Trivium, Pop Evil, Seether, Skillet, 10 Years, Buckcherry, Escape the Fate, Starset, Islander, For Today, 3 Years Hollow, Scott Stapp, and many more.
Cross the Divide most recently released their highly-anticipated full-length album “Fearless” on October 14, 2016. The 11-track CD features their hit songs “The Perfect Storm” and “Sail on the Stars” which have seen airplay on terrestrial and internet radio all over the world, as well as upcoming single “Fearless We Rise”. “Fearless” is the first professionally produced record for the band, and the first recordings with the current lineup. Currently the band is shifting gears and getting ready to do a national tour, so stay tuned!
