FISSURE is a unique band made up of life long friends that have made music with each other for over sixteen years. Although FISSURE, in its current line up, did not form until the summer of 2003, the music they currently play comes from the history these individuals share, mixed with elements of each members musical vision. Starting off a string of shows in the Central Valley of California, FISSURE played the Battle Of The Bands hosted by the local rock radio station Rock 96.7 KMRQ. After their performance Adam Ruppel, the guitarist of systematic, approached them whereupon he expressed his interest in the band and a possible recording venture. After visiting his studio, seeing him at shows, and listening to his abilities, FISSURE felt it was time to start working with Adam. After struggling to balance recording and playing live, the group decided it was best to stop playing shows and focus on making the best recording possible. That is all history now. The self-titled demo containing 8 songs, recorded and produced by Adam Ruppel, is finished has been released to the collective delight of your eardrums.
