Roots Like Mountains
With Weapons of Mass Creation and Mechanical Wing
Colorado based emotive hardcore band, Roots Like Mountains, rolls into Studio on 4th on March 6th. Two incredible local bands, Weapons of Mass Creation and Mechanical Wing, round out what promises to be an incredible evening.
Roots Like Mountains was created as a means to escape from the weight of our past and to express the deep passion for music that burns in each of us. We all come from different backgrounds, and we’ve walked different paths. Through it all, we found that music has a power to affect the hearts and minds of people in a way that defies reason or belief.
Through our music, we seek to connect with people in a way that skips the mind and goes straight to the heart. We want to share our joy, our anger, our pain, to remind people that they are not alone. We are surrounded by people who think and feel the same as we do, and in that, we are all together. We are family.
We strive to build a community of people from all different homes, backgrounds, lifestyles, communities, and countries, and bring them together to share our love of music. To share our love, joy, anger, sadness, and passion. To share all the weight of this life, and to keep on fighting together.
Weapons of Mass Creation are a band known for explosive performances and story driven, hard-hitting songs, blending slam poetry with genres like rock, folk, blues, indie and hip hop.

By 2010 developed several Abel Press joined Pantoja and Atack and WMC was born. In April 2011 Aric Shapiro joined WMC on bass and completed the line up.
