Die Trying

Die Trying was a rock band, formed in 2001 with four members.

After signing a contract with Island Records in 2002, they worked released their first single, "Oxygen's Gone", followed by their self-titled debut album on June 10, 2003. Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach appears on the song "Conquer The World" from that album.

Die Trying are no longer together. They came together for a while in 2004 and formed the band VanityKills, then disappeared again.

Now they're back as Sin City Angels, are are currently working on a new album.

This was recently stated by Jensen:
"I'm in the studio now actually. Hope to have new music later this year.." on 1/13/08

The band has a myspace with some new songs on it, it can be found here:

"The band and Jassen's lyrics are fueled with attitude, and a harsher reality than ever before. The time has come to all of the fans of Die Trying to find out what was really the fate of their fallen band. Now with a new jaded and aggressive outlook and a fire that never has been in the band before, Die Trying's new formation exists. They are the Sin City Angels." -Sin City Angels (off their MySpace)

* Jassen Jensen - singer
* Jack Sinamian - guitar
* Steve Avery - bass
* Matt Conley - drums

Die Trying was a hardcore band that excited for a short while in 2003, featuring ex-members of the legendary New Jersey Straight Edge band Floorpunch. They sounded like Floorpunch and classic NYHC. Die Trying re-used one song from Smash And Grab, another short-lived post-Floorpunch band. In March 2003 they changed their name from Die Trying to Volume 4. As far as I know they never played out, but they did record a rehearsal session which was up for download at the time, 5 songs in total.

Die Trying/Volume 4 line-up:
*Mark Porter - vocals
*Bill Punch - guitar
*Dave Wez - bass
*Scott Wez - drums

American Music Channel is “Giving Back” through creating philanthropic campaigns that align charitable organizations and artists to make a difference in our world.

As the whole world begins to focus on The United Kingdoms capital city the evangelical music fan in me has ben reminded of the feature I wrote here a couple of years ago on a few of London’s rock and roll hotels. A lot of questions followed, mostly music fans and tourists wanting more specific information.

So, with the Olympics here and with thousands of you heading to London for the sports fiesta, this American based “Londoner” doesn’t want anyone to miss out on a huge opportunity to discover some of London’s greatest musical landmarks. So the next few Music City 411 blogs are going to see me waxing lyrical about the music heritage of my hometown. And for anyone visiting for the first time and wanting to spend some time exploring London’s musical history I’ve highlighted some safe and top-rated music-flavored hotels to make your trip as easy and rewarding as possible. I’ve stayed, eaten and drank in all the places I talk about and traipsed every street been in every venue mentioned and ridden every bus train and taxi recommended.

So let’s start where it all started. The Beatles!
