Burdens Within was formed in 2010 when friends Ryan J. Kline (Bass) and Guitarist Mike Riley’s previous bands came to an end. The duo ran into each other and decided to get together to write some music. They wanted to write songs with no barriers. Armed with one purpose: “We just wanted to make kick ass rock music” states Ryan. Burdens Within was formed!
With it’s roots in the alternative grunge movement of the 90s and adding elements of classic rock, Hard Rock, & Metal, Burdens Within covers all the bases and has created its own unique sound. Rounding out the line up is Craig Thomas on drums, Ryan Alan Battering on lead guitar, and Daniel R. Rivers on vocals .
After inking an Artist Partnership deal with pavement Records, the band is completing the final touches on their debut album. Stay tuned for more information.
