“It’s the music teen angst is made from,” writes ABC23 Managing Editor N.L. Belardes about From Ritual To Romance’s 2008 EP, “Plan A Disguised As Plan B.” There’s a theme of changing plans, bad guys winning out, girls getting what they deserve when teen boys make up their wandering minds.
Formed in 2004, the up and coming From Ritual to Romance (FRTR) embodies the new age of MySpace made indie pop bands: self-driven, self-made, self-recorded, hard-working from the living room to the recording room, which sometimes can be the same location in today’s rock world. “If you’re a serious band you have to treat recording music as any professionals do, even if in your own home studio,” says vocalist Ruben Val Verde.
From FRTR’s home studio to being mixed and edited by the well respected Alex Bush, (Every Time I Die, Still Remains, Dillinger Escape Plan, High School Musical) of Sonikwire Studios in Mission Viejo, CA at Studio G comes the highly anticipated newest album Plan A Disguised As Plan B to be released at Jerry’s Pizza on June 14!! Their sound, which has been described as “power scream pop” by JR of https://www.tradebit.com has attracted fans from all over the world since their forming in the fall of 2004. It’s a Silverstein, Senses Fail, Underoath type of mix that follows the sense of a pop structure and also use of unique songwriting approaches to spice it up and differentiate from plain and traditional methods. Their passion, work ethic, goals, talent and love for music, has driven them and helped them improve their songwriting over the years which has also garnered them performances to play alongside bands such as 30 Seconds to Mars, Yellowcard, Chiodos, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, The Used, and Senses Fail, amongst other notable national acts. In February of 2006 they recorded their self-produced 7 song EP “The Innocent Cause of All The Trouble” at Love Juice Labs in Riverside, CA and was made available in August 2006. Since the availability of their tracks on their myspace in March of 2006 they have recorded over 100,000 plays and almost 60,000 views!
The band consists the five original members who seem to have come together by fate. Three of the band members were conveniently born into the same musical family and their best friend just happened to have a bunch of musical equipment to get them started. As luck would have it, after just the first audition for drummers, they found “the guy” they were looking for and were ready to start writing their music and eventually give their crowds a real show. In March of 2005, they played their first show at a small venue already filled to capacity with an excited crowd of locals. From that point on, their fan base continued to grow rapidly and with such loyal fans, to date, FRTR has entertained fans in close to 100 shows, having their songs on rotation, being requested and played on 106.1 KRAB radio. FRTR has come a long way from their humble beginnings, but judging by their goals and aspirations, they still have a lot of ground to trek and are in no position of slowing down!
Through heavy promotion, word of mouth, internet flyers, forming a street team, and loyal fans begging to help be a part of the rising success, FRTR has been working hard to get their name out there and over time has now become one of the premier bands in Bakersfield, CA. “These FRTR dudes have stuck together and have a massive core audience to show for their efforts.” JR of https://www.tradebit.com. FRTR is well-known throughout their area for their heartfelt, intense, live shows. “Every time I ask someone what they think of FRTR they rave to me about how awesome they are live. I''m stoked I finally got to see and hear for myself what everyone has been talking about. Go see this band live I promise you will not be disappointed I wasn''t.” JR of https://www.tradebit.com.
