We came up with an idea early 2011 to start a band. 'Mosher' Joe and Charlie discussed after one fateful day down St Nicks starting a really heavy band. This idea was left hanging! Later we found a drummer Matt Townsend, later becoming 'Thunderhands' because of his immense ability to drum, and then we found a singer the all so talented Luca Falcomer-Dawson. The idea of becoming really heavy faded and we focused on doing a few covers. Those covers died as soon as we started our first song. Into the creation of our first song it was said that we should bring in another guitarist; Liam Cleaver! With the new edition we got through song after song dynamics sounding good and the twin guitars working effectively. After weeks of band naming we stuck with As She Burns after our first band name, Paybacks A Bitch, was too explicit. We all started working really well and kept improving. By the end of Autunm we recorded our first song with 14 Records in Leamington and that song is what you all know as Anger Anthem. That song is what we thought defined us and really kicked you in the face. Come 2012 we have started gigging and hope to be gigging frequently locally.
