Twelve Tribes is a
metalcoreband, from Dayton, Ohio, USA. Originally established in 1998, the group is currently signed to the independent record label Ferret Music. They draw influences from a cross cultural array of music such as punk rock, hip hop, classic rock, drum & bass, metal and hardcore.
After recording two demos and playing shows in and around the mid-west, the band signed with South Florida's
Eulogy Recordings. They released their debut full length album " As Feathers to Flowers and Petals to Wings" in 1999, which gained nationwide attention and contributed to an upsurge in the melodic hardcore movement.
"As Feather To Flowers…" was followed shortly after by the EP entitled "Instruments". This musical offering was the antithesis of the traditional hardcore sound and somewhat distanced the band from mainstream fans. The band toured much of the following two years with then up and coming bands such as
Poison the Well, Blood Has Been Shed, Every Time I Die, Drowningman, and Eighteen Visions.
The Rebirth of Tragedy" had been 2 years in the making, it was produced by Killswitch Engage's vocalist Howard Jones, he commented about the band that 'Without a doubt Twelve Tribes is unique; nobody has what they have, and knowing them as people as well as musicians made me jump at the opportunity to get involved. To me, this is what music is'. [ [http://ultimate-guitar.com/news/upcoming_tours/twelve_tribes_dont_waste_time.html Twelve Tribes Don't Waste Time | News @ Ultimate-Guitar.Com ] ] Their Ferret Records debut is a documentation of their struggles, successes and personal growth as musicians. They went on to share the stage with bands such as Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Soulfly, Machine Head, Zao and It Dies Today.
It was this sold out overseas tour in 2005 with Killswitch Engage that set the band up for what would be a year of touring America. Twelve Tribes returned overseas two more times with
36 Crazyfistsand then with their label mates Every Time I Dieand A Life Once Lost.
In 2006, the band began touring again in the US and went again over to the UK and Europe with
Hatebreedand Unearthpromoting their October 3rd release of Midwest Pandemic. They completed their January/February tour in the UK with 36 Crazyfistswith huge success and also finished their headline tour in May in Europe with the same result.
Adam Jackson also recently worked with Alaskan band
36 Crazyfistson their newest album, " The Tide And Its Takers", on the track "Clear The Coast".
