Into The Presence is an American alternative rock band from Los Angeles, California, founded in 2008. The band is fronted by Luis Carlos Maldonado (guitar/vocals) and features Ana Lenchantin (cello/keyboards), and Morgan Young (drums).
Maldonado had gained notoriety as guitarist with Glenn Hughes, Michael Schenker, UFO, John Waite, Pat Monahan and many others, working for Shrapnel Records, as well as being a prolific songwriter.
Initially the band featured Tim Alexander, best known as the drummer for Primus and A Perfect Circle.
During the recording of the debut album Tim brought in cellist Ana Lenchantin, whose credits include Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Gnarls Barkley, No Doubt, Rihanna and more recently Train and her sister, Paz Lenchantin who had been a member of A Perfect Circle and Zwan.
The self-titled album was first released in 2009 after being signed by Michael Caplan on Razor & Tie and received favorable reviews from critics. Following the release they toured nationally, opening up for Vast and Puscifer, soon after which Alexander left the band.
With Luis and Ana remaining as its core members, the band saw some personnel changes, while the band toured the US extensively.
The new line-up, formed in early 2010, has been working on new material, and are set to record the follow up in late 2011. They are currently signed by Bieler Brothers, with a re-release of the debut album planned in 2012.
