The Relapse Symphony was an American rock band from Washington, DC. The group took an ambiguous hiatus in the summer of 2016. About two years later in the fall of 2018, the band returned for a sold out reunion concert in their hometown. The group has continued to perform new material since.

History[edit]

The Relapse Symphony began in 2012. They released their debut EP, "Time's Running Out", on December 4th of 2012 accompanied by single and music video for "Panic! (Time's Running Out)" for promotion. Immediately spending the next two years touring and working on the follow-up full-length album. They released their dark-pop, hook-charged, debut album, "Shadows", on July 8th of 2014 via StandBy Records with music videos for "Savage Eyes" and "One More Yesterday" . This album cycle brought extensive touring for the band and also the exit of drummer, Tyler Gloyd. Guitarist Alex Foxx would move to drums and Ray Miller would fill the guitar position. In December 2014, the band released an Acoustic version of "Shadows", which would be the first release that new member, Ray Miller would perform on. Bassist, Brandon Kile would also leave the band on amicable terms. June 23rd of 2015 saw the release of a much more aggressive, biting Relapse Symphony with the second full-length album entitled: "Born to Burn". Singles, "Die Alone" and "Tear Me Down" would be released with the album. The band was put on the 2015 Vans Warped Tour immediately followed-up by a somewhat public falling out with then-drummer Alex Foxx. The band rounded out the line-up for the tour with bassist and friend Adam Peters and Tommy Vintin on drums to fill-in. After a successful run on Warped Tour, a new rhythm section including Bassist, D Vought and drummer, Jonny "Jangy" Fruitman would be added to the band. In March of 2016, the band embarked on an East Coast run which would also be their first headlining tour called "Rock N' Roll Warriors" tour. After another West Coast tour in May/June of 2016, and exhausted TRS would return home for a hiatus.


In the fall of 2018, the band responded to fan's unrelenting curiosity about the band's future with a headlining reunion concert in Washington DC. After the success of the concert, the band has continued playing and performing all-new material.[citation needed]
