MORE ABOUT BETHESDA


After recently having the privilege to play with bands such as Eisley, Azure Ray, Margot and the Nuclear So & So's, Jessica Lea Mayfield, First Aid Kit, River City Extension, Frontier Ruckus, Suckers, and more, Bethesda has used their energetic live shows and carefully crafted songs to elevate themselves into the same conversation as some of indie rocks best.

These five friends, in hopes of satisfying their snow laden angst, came together in the interest of channeling their desires for meaningful living into the artistic expression of music. The result? Bethesda, an Indie Rock group that brings together folk roots, indie beats, crafty guitars, and soaring vocals with meaningful lyrics to build songs that move your heart and feet in equal measures.

Blending influences from seemingly unblendable musical genres, these folks paint pictures of human drama, the struggles of life, the beauty of nature, and the few truths they know to be true with poignant lyrics and musical movements that can rip you from your apathetic state and send you whirling! This vibrant combination has aided Bethesda in developing a loyal following in Northeast Ohio.

Bethesda followed up the 2008 release of their self-titled EP with the release of their debut full-length album, Love in a Time of Tra La La, in January of 2010. With this LP, Bethesda displays the full maturation of a sound and ethos that is uniquely theirs with 10 thoughtfully crafted songs that invite you into a world that is convinced that artistic expression of music does not have to come at the expense of dance-ability. Bethesda is gearing up to release their new EP "Dreamtiger & Other Tails" in May 2011.
