About 4 TIL RUIN

Linwood, MI

4 ‘TIL RUIN is an aggressive, melodic and powerful indie-metal band who have recently delivered their new album Nostalgia’s Shade (2007) to online media outlets such as iTunes, Best Buy, and CD Baby. This album is loaded with metal/melodic moments; from the jack hammer bridge in Transparent Concrete, to the buzz saw riffing in Lift a Finger- the band offers the listener a glimpse into just how heavy they can be before stripping it all down with aggressive-like melody within the same song. Recorded in Owosso, MI with Tim Houser, this album represents the band’s years of brotherhood/chemistry and the countless hours of practice/devotion to music.
The band has decades of musical experience as the majority of them been spent in a local favorite - Social Degeneration of Poets (Released the album Martyrdom in 1997). Social Degeneration of Poets sold over a thousand albums, toured Michigan extensively, won several battles and received rave reviews and awards collectively and individually
Meet the members of 4 ‘TIL Ruin
Shawn Shuart – Lead Vocals. Shawn can wail. He can bring the growl, the scream, and the smooth vocals with ease. Shawn's vocal style has been compared to the lead singers of Live, and Soundgarden. Shawn is truly respected in the local music scene. Claim to fame: Opened for Anthrax (John Bush Era
Shawn has fronted the following bands: Radical Jack, Social Degeneration of Poets, and Ratchet Jaw
Robert Seymore – Guitar. Rob has been playing guitar since he was 13. He idolizes Jimi Hendrix, he can probably tell you what the man had for breakfast in 1968. Rob has been the primary songwriter in every band he was a member. He is truly gifted at what he does. We hope that he never sets the guitar down, but if he does we hope at his last show he will break out his frenzied version of Voodoo Child live
Rob has played in the following bands: Radical Jack, Social Degeneration of Poets, and Kill Shot
Kevin Rowell – Drums. Kevin has been playing drums since he was 13. He hits the skins harder than a Pimp hits his Ho (we don't condone hitting women, it's just a bad analogy). Kevin is truly a fun drummer to watch. He is the engine that makes this band run
Kevin has played in the following bands: Radical Jack, and Social Degeneration of Poets
Eric Lomba – Bass. Eric has been playing Guitar since he was 11. He recently switched to bass. He takes a real simplistic approach to bass playing, lock in with the drummer and don’t be too fancy. A compliment to all the old school punk/thrash he grew up on as a kid. He also enjoys all the discounted drink prices at the bar
Eric has played in the following bands: The Atomic Cocktails, Eazly Sleazy, and Sinister Black
