More than survival

Victoria band seeks Best Teen Band title

How We Survive band members Eric White

How We Survive is a Victoria-based band which originated from Chasing Shadows, a rock duo featuring Brody Reid on drums and Eric White on guitar/vox.

Once Chasing Shadows had run its course, Reid and White wanted to move onto something a little different, so they created How We Survive with third band member, Zach Bird, on bass.

With a heavier style, and a few shows under its belt, How We Survive decided to record its first four-track EP in March 2012. Self-released, you can find it free online at howwesurvive.bandcamp.com.

The band is also vying for the title of B.C.’s Best Teen Band. How We Survive is in the top 10 of the contest run by Youthink Magazine. Watch videos of the band, hear some of their tunes and vote at youthink.ca.

The top three will perform at the live B.C.’s Best Teen Band event in April for the chance to be crowned B.C.’s Best Teen Band.
