“Imbued is a band that always brings high energy and musical craftsmanship to the stage. Although only a year or so old, this band grabs your attention from the moment the first note is played.” – Kim Allegrezza, axs.com.

Imbūed consists of Brian Reilly (vocals), Michael Reilly (guitar), Eric Castillo (guitar), Andrew Spangler (bass/vocals), and Dave Hiester (drums).  I very rarely like a band out of the gate. I had never heard of Imbūed before this night and I was blown away. The perfect vocals, screaming guitars, smooth bass lines and heavy hitting drums, were a perfect combo. Brian is the main vocalist but shares the duty with Andrew; they have offset vocals that add a certain depth to the songs. The whole crowd was into their set and singing along to a couple of songs. Catch these guys now before they blow up, I guarantee it will happen. – Tara Lakatos, Rock DNA Photography

It was June 2015 when Brian Reilly and Michael Reilly both decided it was time to join together as many peers insisted that they should work together. It was agreed to bring in Andrew Spangler (whom was in Mikes previous band) to add to the dimension of the sound with his bass lines and powerful vocals. After a few temporary guitar players, Eric Castillo (who studied at Musicians Institute in California) joined the band officially in February 2017, which expanded the stage excitement and sound as a whole with two dueling guitars. David Heister on drums joined in July 2017, due to his consistency and talent behind a kit. With the many years of experience in bands on the east coast, the excitement is at an all-time high with this stacked rock group!

After 2 years of demand for music, and the long process of developing a sound, June 2nd, 2017 the Maryland/Pennsylvania band released their first brand new EP titled, “STAND, FIGHT, LOVE”. The title of the EP brings in all the songs as a whole and can explain a process that many of us face, due to the differences in today’s world. To realize and to STAND for what you believe, to FIGHT for what you feel is right, but most importantly no matter the outcome, LOVE each other for that alone will be the savior of us all. The focus of Imbued is to write catchy and memorable songs that stays true to the roots of a raw hard rock band, while providing a passionate and gut wrenching live performance.

Fans that enjoy bands like 10 Years, Nothing More, Circa Survive, Thrice, Taking Back Sunday, Breaking Benjamin, and Evans Blues, could really find Imbued as their next band to love. For a DIY band to get many opening opportunities for national acts, it just continues the hype and motivation for the band and fans alike. Many have picked Imbued as the band to watch, in a journey that has just begun!
