About Honor By August

For acclaimed modern rock band Honor By August there is a lot in a name. The “August” in the Washington, D.C.-based band’s name refers to another interpretation of the word: to inspire awe or admiration. Taken as a whole, “Honor By August” means earning honor by doing something admirable or awe-inspiring. “The name informs our music in several ways. We all believe in doing things the right way, with integrity, and making music that comes from a place of true inspiration,” says lead vocalist/guitarist Michael Pearsall. On their new EP, the incredible “Four Sides,” the band does just that. Honor By August delves soulfully deep and delivers its finest collection of emotionally charged contemporary rock. The EP is a follow-up to 2013’s acclaimed “Monuments To Progress”, an album that includes two nationally-charting singles, “Already Yours” and “Last Chance”, the latter of which received airplay on SiriusXM’s The Pulse and hometown station WIAD in Washington DC. The song’s immediacy and messaging is refreshingly empowering. “It’s about that moment where you feel like things are falling apart around you but you’re not quite ready to throw in the towel,” Pearsall says. “The song is about recognizing that you have a chance to turn it around.” Honor By August’s poetic sincerity and infectious blend of mesmerizing atmospherics with anthemic choruses have drawn favorable comparisons to U2, Kings of Leon, Snow Patrol and Bruce Springsteen. The Washington Post has called the quartet “one of the most promising new talents on the East Coast.” Recently, the band won Billboard’s “World Song Contest.” The group has shared stages with such diverse artists as Bon Jovi, Imagine Dragons, Switchfoot, Third Eye Blind, Hanson and Parachute. As a main attraction, Honor By August has pulled over 900 into DC’s esteemed 9:30 Club. The group’s music has been broadcast to millions many times over on ESPN, E! and popular MTV shows, and Honor By August has worked with Grammy-winning producers, mixers and engineers including Jack Joseph Puig (U2, Snow Patrol, Rolling Stones), Paul David Hager (Goo Goo Dolls), Jeff Juliano (John Mayer, O.A.R, Lifehouse), Toby Wright (Third Eye Blind) and Jim Ebert (Butch Walker, Meredith Brooks). Honor By August is Michael Pearsall, lead vocals/guitar; Evan Field, guitar/piano/backing vocals; and Brian Shanley drums/percussion. The brave emotionality in its music reflects the band’s commitment to writing honestly about life. “We hope that our music finds a place in people’s lives wherever they may be on the spectrum of life’s highs and lows,” Pearsall says. “If you’re going through a tough time, hopefully one of our songs will help you through it. If you’re having a great time, hopefully one of our songs can enhance that experience. Life is what we make of it so why not try to make the most of it?” “We’ve met a lot of great bands and made a lot of great fans on the road. We’ve seen more of this beautiful country in a few years than most people see in a lifetime,” Pearsall says, reflecting on the band’s 10-year history. “Up until recently we’ve done it all without much help from anyone in the industry. Thanks to our fans, families and friends, as well as our continued belief in ourselves, we’ve been able to share what we love to do with a small part of the world. We hope our records allow us to continue that journey and share our music with even more people all over the world.” The "Four Sides" EP is available now on Noble Steed Music!
