What is "Modern
Noise"? The title is merely a statement that reflects what they are
creating: their take on the modern rock sound. Tommy Roger explains the title
and music: "This record was an outcome of me creating songs while not wanting
to over evaluate the music. I wanted to record things that naturally came to me
and because of this, the record feels like an accurate extension of myself. I
took a more rock approach and really focused on writing simple yet dynamic
songs. Lyrically, I feel it's a great mix of storytelling and personal
experience. "Modern Noise" is basically just saying this is my current noise on
the earth. We all are here for a short amount of time and the noise we make is
Fans of Tommy's work with Between the Buried and Me, as
well as fans who steer clear of anything metal related, will find plenty to
enjoy here as this is nothing short of a well written, genuine, and intensely
passionate modern rock/progressive album. This is Tommy's take on music, or as
he says: "Music is always Modern Noise. I'm just a person in current time
trying to create something somewhat new."
