Introducing EVASION...

In the summer of 2012, singer, Connor O'Hanlon and guitarist, Trevor Baun left their previous band "Subterfuge" to play local shows in Doylestown with drummer, Ben Verbeck, and former guitarist, Justin Dinardo. After the group played a few shows together, they decided to officially start a band. We threw together four songs roughly over the course of a week and decided to hit the studio. About a week before we went to the studio, we picked up bassist, Henry Ruddell, who learned all the parts in that time frame. Justin moved to rhythm guitar. They spent a day recording the four tracks at Dome Sound Studios and released their first self-titled EP on August 18, 2012. In the following months, they parted ways with rhythm guitarist, Justin Dinardo, and decided to stay a four person band. Evasion will most likely be heading back into Dome Sound Studios in early 2013 to record their next record entitled "Subterfuge".

Evasion is:

Connor O'Hanlon-Singer

Trevor Baun-Guitarist

Henry Ruddell-Bassist

Ben Verbeck-Drummer

Question 1: What are three things you would tell people who have not seen Evasion to entice/ convince them to come check you guys out?

Our songs are very diverse so that each song can have a different appeal and interest to the listeners. We go crazy on stage as much as we can and encourage others to do so as well with us. We say some pretty stupid stuff on stage and pretty much make fun of each other and our friends to make it entertaining and fun.

Question 2: What are three future goals of Evasion?

Our goals would be to get signed and be able to record a full length record, record a split record with a band that we like, and then eventually go on tour.
