Hailing from Saginaw, Michigan, Change Is is a four-piece metal/hardcore band striving to stand out from the average band on the music scene in their area. With emotionally-driven but hard-hitting lyrics, Change Is recently released a full-length album “Insomnia,” as a follow-up to their 2013 debut EP.
The album shows definite growth and development in the band’s sound. Their efforts in the past year have put them on shows alongside national acts such as Monuments, Villains, Lionfight, Polyphia, Jamie’s Elsewhere, and Famous Last Words. 2015 has been a big year for the band with a new album, a tour, and even a set at Bledfest. These four dedicated artists aim to impress and inspire everyone who hears them.
“The concept behind the album is that each song represents a reason why I was up late and why life just seemed to turn gray,” said vocalist Calvin Banning. “I decided to call the album Insomnia because all of these issues came to me at once, causing the sleepless nights that tested my limits.”
