With the release of its sophomore disc, Of A Captive Heart, and a tireless work ethic, A Road Less Traveled is moving boldly forward to become a legitimate rising star in 2011. Lead single â€śUnderneathâ€ť is already gaining airplay, following in the footsteps of the bandâ€™s previous single, â€śSave Meâ€ť from the bandâ€™s independent debut, which landed in the top 30 at christianrock.net.
With roughly 120 shows logged in 2009, the band laid a strong foundation and grew a loyal fan base to build upon throughout the Midwest. A combination of smaller headline shows, conference appearances, youth camps and opening slots on national tours attests not only to the bandâ€™s flexibility and diversity, bit to its willingness to do whatever it takes to connect with its steadily growing audience.
As the band refines and sharpens its dynamic live show, the touring opportunities continue to roll in. In 2009, A Road Less Traveled joined the â€śRock What You Got Tourâ€ť with Superchick, Stellar Kart and Article One to finish the year strong. In 2010, the band joined Hawk Nelson and Group 1 Crew for the spring leg of the â€śLive Life Loud Tour.â€ť Most recently the band shared the stage at Snyderâ€™s Red Letter Rockinâ€™ New Yearâ€™s Eve with Christian bands like Remedy Drive, The Wedding, The Almost and POD.
Undoubtedly, this is just the beginning for a band that thrives on connecting with its fans on both and emotional and physical level. By combining powerful, introspective lyrics that the audience can identify with and an energetic, engaging live show, this is quite simply becoming the band to watch for in 2011.
