Local Nashville band Throwing Gravity, who were formerly known as The Rust, had quite a 2009. They played their first live show, they embarked on their first US tour, and they signed with a major label. They are now in the studio recording their album, which is set to be released in the middle of 2010. It’s being produced by Jon King and Josh Abraham; King produced their first album, and Abraham has worked with Rev Theory and Velvet Revolver.
We had a chance to see them play on Saturday night, and they’ve really solidified as a band since we first saw them in June. The founding members of the band are sons of some friends of ours, and it’s been really exciting to get somewhat of an insider’s perspective on their growth as a band. They’ve worked really hard over the past year or so, and they deserve all the attention they’ve been getting. I can’t wait to see what 2010 has in store for Throwing Gravity.
