Count To Four was formed in early 2010. Made up of members Mike Hayden, Jay Miller, Pete Adams and Neale DiMento, the band wasted no time in writing and recording, putting out debut EP Know Where You Come From that September, just a matter of months after inception.
Know Where You Come From, along with 2011’s Acoustic EP showcased not only the bands’ highly motivated DIY work ethic, but also their versatility on song writing. It didn’t take long for their tenacious efforts to be noticed, either, being drafted in to support some of pop-punk’s biggest names including The Wonder Years, Man Overboard, We Are the In Crowd and Senses Fail. Further to such success, in December 2012 Count To Four were also handpicked from a contest of around 400 bands to open for All Time Low at a one-off college concert. All Time Low themselves choosing Count To Four as the deserving band.
Between Two Cities captures the honest intent of Count To Four, combining their individual integrity with a musical landscape made to mirror the velocity and emotion of the stories it withholds. The release sees the quartet perfecting their signature sound with ten aggressive, hook-heavy anthems with Matt Dalton (Craig Owens, For The Fallen Dreams, Chiodos) behind the controls.
The band has just returned from their ‘Aint No Country Wide Enough’ US tour, which has seen them play across the nation throughout July & August. Their debut album Between Two Cities (from which ‘Bottles And Books’ is taken) reached no.1 on the Bandcamp punk chart and an impressive no.3 on the overall Bandcamp chart, off the back of aBUZZNET feature & the aforementioned MTV Buzzworthy premiere.Awesome album if you like TWY, TSSF, Major League etc.
Having supported All Time Low during their college tour at the end of 2012 and the subsequent acclaim off the back of Between Two Cities, Count To Four are currently riding the crest of a wave as they head into the second half of 2012, starting with their much anticipated national tour. They also have a new video interview with Alex Gaskarth endorsing Count To Four and discussing reasons for picking the band to support ATL, which you can watch here: http://bit.ly/19D8W37
