ETMS Presents: Covalence Album Release

Saturday, May 18 
All Ages | 8pm

Tickets $8 Advance, $10 Day of show

With Brack Owens supported by Mass Driver
The Worn Out Soles

Come help Covalence celebrate the release of its debut album, Alpha Decay, on Saturday, May 18 at the Open Chord. The band will be cranking out popular selections from their CD as well as crowd-favorite covers! The Worn Out Soles and Brack Owens featuring Mass Driver will also take the stage to blast out some high energy rock and serious metal that is sure to make the party an event not to be missed! 

Covalence is a four-piece alternative rock band that regularly explores the melodies and rhythms of the progressive metal and grunge genres. Co-founded in the autumn of 2016 by vocalist/lead guitarist Carter Manson and rhythm guitarist Tad Long, the band also features bassist Gabe Carrasco, and drummer Richard David Hodges. 

While Manson's meticulous guitar playing and sometimes gritty, full-throated/other times tamer, smoother vocalizations define and exemplify what Manson refers to as the "hard/gentle blend" of the band's primary sound, Long's intuitive accompaniment and subtle variations add a depth and range uncommon to many bands of Covalence's ilk. Underscored by the understated yet powerful thrum of Carrasco's bass and the thunderous precision of Hodges' drums, Covalence harmonizes its myriad of talents into galvanic, crowd-pleasing concerts that have resulted in growing recognition and burgeoning respect in the Knoxville music scene.
