Mace Ballard - "Lanterns" CD AF077
Mace Ballard is punk music with a thesaurus in hand, utilizing inventive and sometimes gritty instrumentation as a foundation for the layers of melody that form their unique sound. Originally formed in Pittsburgh, PA in 2009 as a songwriting project between Chris Daley, a lover of words and basic melody, and Brandon Lehman, an actual guitar and song architect prodigy, they eventually would add the driving rhythm section of Steve and TJ to round out their fresh approach to pop punk; blending throwback emo vocals and inventive guitar riffs.
On July 15th 2016, Mace Ballard will release their A-F Records debut “Lanterns.” Produced by Chris (#2) Barker, “Lanterns” is the culmination of the bands musical progression over the last 7 years. Mace Ballard continue to also be a regional force on the road as well as at home in Pittsburgh, having shared the stage with such bands as Anti-Flag, Set Your Goals, Chris Conley, I Am the Avalanche, and many more.
