Thera

Thera (Pronounced Th-ear-ah) is a 5-piece Alaskan rock band forging their own brand of epic,soaring music. Their goal is to create the kind of music that ranges from majestic highs to crushinglows in the span of one song, leaving the listener breathless and reeling in its wake. Thera beganwriting such music after solidifying their lineup in January of 2009, and releasing the remarkablymature ep The Aftermath in April of 2009.

Thera (Pronounced Th-ear-ah) is a 5-piece Alaskan rock band forging their own brand of epic,soaring music. Their goal is to create the kind of music that ranges from majestic highs to crushinglows in the span of one song, leaving the listener breathless and reeling in its wake. Thera beganwriting such music after solidifying their lineup in January of 2009, and releasing the remarkablymature ep The Aftermath in April of 2009. However, the true beginnings of the band go back muchearlier: Thera was first conceived in 2005 by founding members Ronnie Plate and Stephanie Plate inthe small-town of Soldotna, Alaska, where they cut their teeth playing their first local shows. Theyquickly progressed to playing around the rest of the state, which brought them into contact withtheir future drummer, Benny Maus. They found their lead guitarist, Mason Venhaus, after moving toOklahoma in the summer of 2007 in order to pursue both music and higher education. Afterreturning to Alaska in the start of 2009 Thera added their fifth and final member in bassist StevenCornfield and quickly regained and increased their local fan base with the release of The Aftermathand consistent gigging.

Work on their full-length indie debut, If This Is the End…, began in the fall of 2009. Released April 3,2010, If This Is the End… will show the world what Thera has: all the energy and potential of a freshnew band combined with the depth and maturity of seasoned artists. Stylistically, the music rangesfrom stratospheric choruses to crunchy breakdowns, piano balladry to screamo flirtations, acousticstrumming to searing leads. Lyrically, the songs face subjects such as loss, death, and regret, butalways juxtaposed with a passion and hope intended to inspire the listener. If This Is the End…promises to be a fresh breath of air in the scene and Thera is set to take their sound to the world. « hide
