Assuming We Survive Signs With InVogue Records, Releases Video For "Too Close"

Southern California rockers Assuming We Survive have signed with InVogue Records and will go on tour with We Were Sharks (with support from Never Loved on select dates) this fall. 

Rock n’ roll subculture is uniquely exciting in terms of the level of crowd participation, interactivity, and accessibility present at most shows. From the early days of the Sex Pistols and the Ramones, clear through to the Descendents and NOFX, the most passionate of players work hard to destroy the perceived boundary between the audiences and the band. “Hey, we’re just fans, too. You could be us.”

Assuming We Survive takes this ethos and amplifies it times infinity, barreling headfirst into each and every aspect of their existence with collective energy and unbridled optimism. Singer Adrian Estrella, armed with unmistakable charisma and good-cheer, will take a literal surfboard into the crowd, riding the physical and metaphorical wave of enthusiasm and electricity present at every single AWS show.

The band’s frontman is united in his goodwill and welcoming vibe with his musical cohorts and fellow Inland Empire, California mainstays: guitarist Phil Adams, guitarist Johnny Silva, and drummer Kris Pasos. Assuming We Survive has generated steady steam and garnered accolades for nearly a decade. But in recent years, AWS has truly come into their own as their dedicated approach spreads their sound across the globe, amassing an army of smiling supporters eager to give the band their all.

It’s a wave of momentum and positivity that has catapulted Assuming We Survive into the Top 50 on the New Artist charts and more importantly into the hearts and minds of a burgeoning crew of like-minded supporters and believers, from the kids who share their love for the band on social media to the band’s contemporaries.

All Roads Lead to Home, the band’s debut full-length was a collection of inspiring jams running the gamut from pop-punk to Easycore, with aggressive energy befitting of the more extreme sides of the underground scene and soaring melodies with unapologetic hooks, catchier than most Top 40 rock radio.

Assuming We Survive songs are a collective testament to the band’s creative diversity, dense musical influences, and willingness to pour themselves into their music. Their songs are earnestly heartfelt. AWS is both motivated and motivating.

AWS has toured with such bands as Falling In Reverse, Attila and Atreyu to name a few, while making the rounds on festival lineups like SXSW, So What?! Music Fest, Vans Warped Tour, Self-Help Festival, and Monster’s Aftershock, where they've played alongside bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Pierce The Veil, Sleeping With Sirens, Good Charlotte, and Real Friends. Assuming We Survive isn’t satisfied until every person in the house is energized, happy, and empowered.

With their last release, CHAPTERS, the band went into the studio with producer Tyler Smyth (Danger Kids, Bless the Fall, Falling In Reverse) with the mentality of making a record that would “break the mold” so to speak.

Now with their recent signing to InVogue Records, Assuming We Survive aims to continue to energize the whole world, one show at a time, channeling energy back and forth with every single fan.
