In a time where commercial music is barely made with instruments, there is a band who draws upon sounds from the past to stand in defiance of the norm: That Band is PLANTATION.
Plantation is a 4 piece rock band formed in 2011 by lead guitarist Patrick Fiore in Vineland, New Jersey. He chose the name Plantation in honor of his desire to one day own a self-sufficient farm/recording studio (The Plantation). The original lineup played together for about a year before breaking up due to personal differences.
In 2013, after a year plus hiatus, Fiore decided to restart the band after receiving many requests for performances by the band. After a short search the band was reformed. The current line up consists of two original members, Patrick Fiore on guitar and Ben Torpey on Drums. It also includes their longtime friend Matt Williams on bass and new vocalist Corey Presner.
In 2014, the band moved it’s home base to Philadelphia, PA. While in Philadelphia, they recorded their first 6 song EP “Out of The Dark” at Milkboy Studios with Karl Petersen (Miley Cyrus, Usher, Daughtry). The band plans to release their debut EP on May, 30th 2014.
Plantation is quickly climbing the ranks in the Philly music scene. Known for their hard rocking performances and powerful vocals, they have been entertaining fans all over the tri-state area. They are often compared to Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Kyuss and Tool.
