LIKE MOTHS TO FLAMES Vocalist On Leaving Rise Records “I Feel Like We Were Backburned.”

Hailing from Columbus OH, Like Moths To Flames have seemingly enjoyed instant success, thanks in part to vocalist Chris Roetter handling vocal duties in Emarosa, forming in early 2010 and singing to Rise Records later and releasing ‘Sweet Talker’ shortly after.  Constant touring and numerous lineup changes has seen the bands sound change a bit, while still being firmly rooted in its metalcore roots, with their most recent release, 2017’s Dark Divine, showing off their penchant for soaring choruses.
