About MyMotive

Grand Prairie, TX

As an undefined melody slowly leaks through the speakers and a continuous drum beat starts to engage, one would think the necessary formula for a heavy rock band would be a raucous scream followed by a few destructive verses and nice break here and there. This is when the seat is kicked out from under you. A full throttle rip roars through the crowd and a sudden hush devastates the listener. Keeping every note on the edge of an annihilating metal assault, the young lads of Dallas passionate styling is the perfect ingredient to an already exceptional concoction. This fiery, fervent sound is none other than MYMOTIVE.

Forming in mid-2001 from the ashes of a few former bands, the childhood friends evolved around each other's influences and musical tastes. Together they picked one another up from the fall of experimental new projects when fate finally brought them back together for one solid sound. The normal elements in place, perhaps exuding a bit more thirst for their art among young men creating such delicate metal, Dallas natives Tony Housh (vox), Donny Yrlas (skins), Jude Martinez (guitar), Rob Hofman (bass) have already lived and learned among the thriving heavy scene in Deep Ellum's favored clubs and collectively built their new band on an educated guess and some exceptional talent...

While they have recently solidified their line up, MYMOTIVE is constantly touring and promoting their ever-evolving and progressive sound. National bills include Cold, Finger Eleven, Ozzfest veterans Pushmonkey, Depswa, Unloco, Pacifier, Jacknife, A Dozen Furies, StereoMud, and Fingertight. So come one come all, and celebrate the offspring of patience, betrayal, forgiveness, and growth...
