Born & Raised
BORN & RAISED is a 5-piece hard rock/metal band from Dallas , TX that started back in 2008 in Denton. Influenced by metal bands of the era such as TOOL , Pantera , System of a Down , Slipknot , Dream Theater , etc…, they created a unique metal sound referred to by many as a refreshing blend of thrash , progressive , rock , metal , and alternative music.
The band members have worked incredibly hard to be where they are today, but even though they’ve gone through a number of lineup changes, they’ve managed to maintain their integrity and focus. Since they were asked to open up for King Diamond back in 2012, Born & Raised has gone on to open for such national acts as Flotsam & Jetsam , Texas Hippie Coalition , Cowboy Mouth , Cowboys From Hell Paso , The Heroine , Saturate , Philm , Hemlock , Warbringer , Final Drive , Chris Poland (Megadeth) , the late Nick Menza ( Megadeth ), and Ohm .
After the release of their third album ‘ Intermezzo ‘ and with a fresh lineup of talented musicians, the band is looking to overcome the Coronavirus pandemic and get back on the road. The foundation on a new album has already begun and the search for new venues, shows, festivals, and tours is in the works.
