“Feed The Fire”

As The Sun Sleeps

Not only is Invidia a great, true superband, they are also frightening intense.  Their video for “Feed The Fire” is scary as all hell, it is that intense.  But with their roots and their true feelings of brotherhood, it is no surprise.

Vocalist, Travis Johnson has been a bassist with the band IN THIS MOMENT for years. His devotion to music and lack of limitations on himself brought about the desire to sing. He had tried his hand at lead vocals with other groups, but when Guitarist Brian Jackson – formerly of SKINLAB and producer Logan Mader (ONCE HUMAN, MACHINE HEAD) came calling, he knew that the material they were putting together was an unmissable opportunity. Brian was between SKINLAB records and the material he was writing started going in a different direction. Calling upon his friend Travis to collaborate, the pair wrote 3 songs in 3 days. Fulfilling their promise to work together, they brought their material to Logan upon his return from tour to enhance what they already had. As Brian, Travis and Logan were tracking, Bassist, Matt Snell (ex member of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH), asked them who was going to play bass for the group.  “You” said Travis, who had been in a band called FLATLINEwith Matt. Matt brought with him a drummer who had been a local friend in Sparks, NV. With a drumline background, Darren Badorine proved himself with the group.

This is a band that truly knows what we want and knows how to deliver.  Johnson has the greatest stage presence I have seen since Ozzy in his heyday.  And with their buzzsaw attack, their music is definitely Take No Prisoners.  Don’t take Invidia too lightly; it might be the last thing you do.
