A young band are set to enter a recording studio in several days to begin recording their debut album as they prepare for upcoming performances in addition to booking additional shows throughout the Midwest. Taken In Vain, a metal band consisting of members from Orrville and Smithville, Ohio will soon be releasing their debut recording effort with all original material written by the band.

“We will be recording our debut album over the next few weeks,” stated David Wilson, lead singer for the band. “Once the recording is done, we will be releasing it for digital download as well as physical CDs.  The album will have 7-9 tracks, all mutually written by the band.”

Taken In Vain was formed in 2010 and by 2011 settled into the current solid line-up of Andrew Diehl, 24, on rhythm guitar; Chase Christie, 18, on lead guitar; David Wilson, 21, on vocals and Kameron Jenkins, 17, on drums.

“We’re looking to make our music available to our fans even when we aren’t playing a show,” continued Wilson. “It is also really exciting for us to finally have a polished up ‘finished’ product we can call our own.”

The band is also gearing up for two upcoming performances. The first will be on June 9 at The Vortex in Akron, OH, an all-age event that will also feature bands Worth The Wait and Lakeland. The Vortex is located at 1167 Brittain Rd., Akron. Show time will be at 6:00 PM with tickets $8.00 in advance or $10.00 at the door.

The second performance will be June 22 at the famed Peabody’s Down Under in Cleveland, OH. Also appearing will be Modern Day Escape, Dr. Acula and From Atlantis. Peabody’s Down Under is located at 2045 East 21st Street, Cleveland. Show time will be at 6:00 PM with tickets available at $10.00 advance or $12.00

“We’re greatly looking forward to making our debut at these two venues,” explained Wilson. “It will be especially cool to be on the Peabody’s stage as we’ve pictured ourselves up on that stage at many different shows through the years.  We’re also really looking forward to sharing a stage with such big national acts as Modern Day Escape and Dr. Acula!  Both of the shows are going to be a blast, we’re just excited to be getting out in front of some people!”

The band is currently in negotiations for several other appearances in Ohio and Michigan and a ‘Mini-Tour’ of the Midwest is being worked on. “We are always looking for more shows to play.  We absolutely love being on stage!  There’s nothing quite like playing our music in front of an audience,” Wilson related.
