Founded on the principles of determination and individuality, post-hardcore quintet Pyro, Ohio continues to blaze their own path out of the mountains of Virginia and into venues across the country. With a dynamic sound encompassing alternative, pop-punk, and metal influences, Pyro, Ohio delivers a unique blend of genres without overstaying their welcome in any of them. Front man Peter Verity’s vocals soar out of the mix, delivering a message of passion and perseverance that listeners can easily connect with. Balancing furious riffs with captivating melodies, the band displays a disregard for the status quo and provides a perfect emotive complement to Verity’s vocals. Pyro, Ohio’s latest release, Before the Sun Sets… puts all of these elements on full display; a glimpse into what appears to be a bright future.
Relentlessly touring the East Coast and Midwest in support of Before the Sun Sets… the band is making waves with their energetic live show and warm attitude towards fans. This along with their heartfelt lyrics has helped generate a following along the East Coast. Less than a year after the band was formed, Pyro, Ohio received over 13,000 votes in the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands and was selected by a panel of industry executives to play at the 2012 Vans Warped Tour in Virginia Beach. The band has also received national recognition in Hot Topic’s Battle of the Bands where they were selected in the top 25 unsigned bands in the U.S. by Hot Topic staff and subsequently voted into the top 10 by fans from around the world.
