Bio

Tried For Treason is an original heavy metal band from rural Missouri, featuring Jake Franks (Vocals, Guitar), Justin "Boz" Boswell (Bass) and Randy Mallett (Drums). The band is currently performing shows and promoting online, in support of their debut EP "Weight of Words", released in April 2013. The EP, available on iTunes, Amazon, and just about everywhere else on the internet, quickly gained the attention of not only hard rock and metal fans from the Midwest, but of many internationally as well (half of the band's online "followers" - numbering in the thousands - hail from outside the U.S.). Shortly after release, the album became successful online almost immediately, with all of the tracks reaching #1 on Soundclick.com's heavy metal, hard rock and alternative charts by the end of the Summer, for example. Tracks were being downloaded by eager and curious new fans worldwide, and physical copies of the cd had to be re-ordered by the band due to them selling so quickly. The band's incessant online promoting (namely social networking and marketing campaigns), combined with good old-fashioned word of mouth, created a buzz within the worldwide metal community within a matter of months. And due to the band's energetic live performances both locally and regionally, they continue to be one of the most talked about metal bands of 2013.Although the heavy metal trio is currently booking and performing shows, they have already begun writing material for their sophomore effort, a full-length follow-up to "Weight of Words", tentatively due for release in mid-2014.
