Biography

Existing at the point where metal collides with all other genres, Iwrestledabearonce are an example of the bold experimentation that has been keeping metal fresh and exciting. The Shreveport, Louisiana group, consisting of Krysta Cameron (vocals), Stephen Bradley (guitar), John Ganey (guitar), Mike Montgomery (drums), and Dave Branch (bass), combines the spastic fury of the Locust, the math wizardry of the Dillinger Escape Plan, and the metal-electro experimentation of Genghis Tron into one easy-to-swallow tablet. In 2007 the group released its bedroom-recorded self-titled EP. After extensive touring, Iwrestledabearonce signed with Century Media and released their debut full-length, It's All Happening, in 2009. That same year the band went through some changes, relocating to Birmingham, Alabama and replacing bassist Dave Branch with Mike Martin. In 2011 the band released its follow-up, Ruining It for Everyone. The following year, Cameron announced she was pregnant, and singer Courtney LaPlante was brought in to replace her on tour; the appointment would eventually become permanent. LaPlante made her recorded debut on the band's third album, Late for Nothing, in 2013. Darker and more tech-heavy than prior outings, the band's fourth studio long-player, Hail Mary, dropped in the summer of 2015. ~ Gregory Heaney
