Burdens Within was formed in 2010 when friends Ryan J. Kline (Bassist) and Mike Riley’s (Guitarist) previous bands came to an end. The duo ran into each other and decided to get together to write some music. They wanted to write songs with no barriers. Armed with one purpose: “We just wanted to make kick ass rock music” states Ryan. Burdens Within was formed! With its roots in the alternative grunge movement of the 90s and adding elements of classic rock, hard rock and metal, Burdens Within covers all the bases and has created its own unique sound. Rounding out the line up is Craig Thomas (Drummer), Ryan Alan Battering (Lead Guitarist) and Daniel R. Rivers on (Vocalist). After inking an Artist Partnership deal with Pavement Records, the band recently released their debut self-titled album featuring the hit single 'Dead End Town.'
