Emerging from the Lansing scene in late 2011, TYRANT was formed by brothers Philip and Andrew Winters while just beginning highschool. Sharing a passion for not only metal, but music itself, TYRANT truly came into fruition with their release of their ‘Jaws of Agony’ demo in February of 2012. TYRANT’s live shows include metal that ranges greatly from speedy solos to dark and ominous ambient breakdowns. In 2013, TYRANT participated in numerous shows for the first half of the year but spent the remainder of the year writing and rehearsing material for their mid-late 2014 release ‘Purge EP’ , that has been streamed on radio stations such as Powerton Radio, Violent Forces Radio and HeadBangers FM.
Shortly after the release in August, Anderson Creager stepped up to the plate and joined the band as the new bass player for the band. The power trio spent 2015 toured heavily around the region, to great responses at venues such as The Music Factory, The Intersection, The Loft, The Foundry, and The Token Lounge, performing alongside of Diamond Plate, Battlecross, Psychostick and Starkill to name a few. While they toured the surrounding area they took inspiration from ominous life events and composed material for their newest CD ‘Black Hand’ out March 25th 2016.
