I Anthem - West Of Homeland

"West Of Homeland" is the worthy debut album from South Carolina based rock band I Anthem; it was released last January 21 and has already spawned two succesful singles: the Billboard top 10 "Enemy" and the top 15 single "Fighting Gravity".

"West Of Homeland", as many other music projects these days, was financed by a crowdfunding campaign (Kickstarter, in this occasion): "This record is special to us because we have always dreamed of making a full-length that we felt had no filler tracks. So, the opportunity to make a full record that was completely funded by our fans is a huge honor and dream come true" frontman Tyler Edwards said.

"West Of Homeland" reveals that I Anthem has found their true sound through a cohesive and powerful combination of overdriven guitars, infectious melodies, and relentless grooves. Stream some of the songs of this album on SoundCloud now following this link.
