As Cities Burn
As Cities Burn
Hell or High Water" is the documentation from As Cities Burn. Songwriter Cody Bonnette continues to put life's thought to pen and vocals, while he and guitarist Chris Lott, bassist Colin Kimble and drummer Aaron Lunsford progressively move past their 2005 debut, Son, I Loved You At Your Darkest. After the vocal departure of his brother T.J. in 2006, Bonnette took over singing. The band's musical direction may have changed, but the density of the lyrics weighed heavier on the band's sophomore release, 2007's Come Now Sleep.

Recorded in Cleveland, TN at First Street Studio over three months, "Hell or High Water," takes the band in a new direction with more focus on creating an ambient and rooted rock sound. Produced primarily by Bonnette along with the aid of Tyler Orr, Jae Ham, Robert Chisolm and Tyler Schwindt, the album was recorded to sound more similar to the band's live sound.

The album takes the sound of Come Now Sleep and strips it even barer instrumentally, while breathing a more reflective take on the music scene ("Errand Rum") love ("Lady Blue") and an artistically blunt finale that passes the torch to other great acts ("Capover").
The band have removed themselves even further from "flavor of the week" Myspace hits, and have created a brutally honest and musically progressive record that wise listeners will surely be discussing about amongst themselves, leaving the deaf ears to wander the saturated Web.

As Cities Burns hails from Louisiana and includes Cody Bonnette (vocals, guitar), Christopher Lott (guitar), Colin Kimble (bass) and Aaron Lunsford -(drums). The band formed in 2002 and have released two projects on Solid State/ Tooth & Nail Records: "Son, I Loved You at Your Darkest" (2005); "Come Now, Sleep" (2007). The band has toured with Emery, So Long Forgotten and Jonezetta.
