Welcome to our newest Emerge Music Group feature, Throwback Thursday (not original but it works), where each Thursday we'll revisit a previously featured Emerge band and find out what they are up to. For my regular Sunday updates I do not repeat bands and there are some great bands that you may have missed out on if they were featured a long time ago. Throwback Thursday will only appear on our blog (not the Facebook group) so be sure to follow this blog page and of course our Twitter!
Our first "TBT" is one of my favorite DC area bands, Honor by August (originally featured March 16, 2008) who have recently released an incredible new album, "Monuments to Progress." While this band can do no wrong in my eyes (or ears) this album is truly excellent in every way. Every song is good and I'm really hoping this is the album that gets these guy the attention they deserve. It's only $8 on iTunes so go check it out!
Honor by August also puts on a great live show and they are touring all over the country the next few months with Tony Lucca, Jonny Lang and Green River Ordinance.
