Born out of Boston, Massachusetts USA, Hourcast sprung to life in 2004. The members of the band, vocalist Patrick McBride, guitarist Dave Henriquez, bassist Dave Sullivan and drummer Jerry Clews have combined their varied influences to create a unique sound that incorporates elements of Hard-Rock and Metal with a distinct dark electronic atmosphere.
In mid-2006 the quartet put out its first album, "State Of Disgrace"; speaking of live shows, Hourcast supported their debut disc by opening on national tours with Godsmack, Sevendust, Breaking Benjamin and 30 Seconds To Mars.
Four years later they resurfaced with "Dystopia", which finds their sound evolving; the Industrial vibe that appears on the sophomore album may be influenced by co-producer Jay Gordon of Orgy. "Freakshow", the first single and probably the most anthemic song on the record, managed to crack the Active Rock airplay chart; it was followed by another powerful single, "Attraction".
