It’s a safe bet to describe the collective minds of Truth & Its Burden as brim-full of heart, hope, optimism and a fresh positive take on the daily crisis. Constantly thinking of new ways to cement a positive attitude in the hearts of any person attending their shows or listening to their songs. They’re not just hopefuls waiting for the world around them to evolve into their childhood dreams; They’re inspired, free thinking individuals who have enough self-belief to power up these dreams with hard work and heartfelt dedication.

Chelsea Grin was originally formed in 2007 by Alex Koehler and former bandmates under the name Ahaziah. They are signed to Rise Records and have released two EPs and four full-length albums.
The band's first members were Alex Koehler, guitarist Chris Kilbourn, bassist Austin Marticorena and lead guitarist Michael Stafford. Marticorena introduced Andrew Carlston to Chelsea Grin and assisted in rewriting their songs as well as the creation of new material. This writing process lead to the tracks on their first release, a self-titled EP that was streamed and released online through iTunes, then released in Compact Disc format worldwide on July 27, 2008. Early on in the band's career, they released the songs "Crewcabanger" and "Lifeless" as singles, both of which were received well by listening audiences on Myspace.The band later sought to obtain a third guitarist position which led to the acquisition of Dan "Niglet" Jones and followed into the writing of their full-length album Desolation of Eden (2010), following up this record was My Damnation (2011) before cutting into a 2012 EP titled Evolve. Since then the band released two more full-lengths, Ashes to Ashes in 2014 and Self Inflicted in 2016.
