As Earth Fades is a deathcore band that began out of Grove City, Ohio in 2014. However, over the years, it has become a project, as members quit, leaving Vocalist Luke Weeks and Guitarist Michael Spencer II the only remaining members.

History Edit

The band began in 2014, with the lineup of Luke Weeks (Vocals), Michael Spencer II (Guitars), Geoff Erynart (Bass) and Patrick Joyner (Drums). The band released two singles in 2015, titled "Half Alive" and "Brandon's Not Here". The following year, in 2016, the band released "Bloodbath". The track was featured on The Bearded Dragon Productions' second sampler compilation.[2] On June 9, 2017, the band announced they had previously been on a hiatus of sorts, but they were returning.[3] Spencer had joined the military, Erynart and Joyner had departed, with Jon Ganshimer filling in on drums for a brief time. In December 2017, the band's track, "Brandon's Not Here" was featured on another compilation from The Bearded Dragon Productions, which featured many bands, including Deliverance, Dire, and fellow local Ohio act, Wait for the Day.[4] On January 23, 2018, with the assistance of The Bearded Dragon Productions, the band released a lyric video for "The Great Falsehood".[5][6] The band has performed with Carnifex, Rings of Saturn, and Lorna Shore.

Style Edit

The band describes themselves as deathcore, with sites comparing them to Saving Grace, For Today and The Agony Scene.[5]
