Crossfade

Crossfade

Hard rock/heavy metal band Crossfade is based in Columbia, SC, where its members reside. The group came together in the late '90s with the merging of singer/guitarist Ed Sloan with bassist/backup singer Mitch James and drummer Brian Geiger as the power trio the Nothing. The group added singer and club DJ Tony Byroads, who had grown up in Buffalo, NY, playing in a band called Final Wave in high school, then moved to Columbia after graduation.

The resulting quartet renamed itself Sugardaddy Superstar.After an L.A. showcase in March 2002, they signed to the Earshot subsidiary of Columbia Records early the next year. The band renamed itself Crossfade then retooled its self-released album, Cold. The revised album was released by Columbia as Crossfade in April 2004. Its first single, "Cold," did extremely well on modern rock radio (spending a staggering 65 weeks on the Active Rock chart) and, by August 2005, the album was certified platinum. By that time, the group was back to being a trio after the departure of a newly married Byroads.

"Invincible" hit the airwaves in June 2006 to usher in the release of Crossfade's follow-up effort, Falling Away, released in late August.
