Formed in winter of 2003, with vocalist James Walrod, guitarist Jimmy George, and drummer Kevin Moore. James and Jimmy met at college through a close net of friends. Discussions about music led to the two performing at various open mic nights and some other social gatherings. Jimmy had previously performed with a local group called Bitter Pill with hometown friend Kevin Moore on drums.The duo gained studio experience at the age of 16 and worked on home demos other local projects. Kevin Moore went to art school in Richmond, Va in pursuit of of music but nothng serious came about. The two returned home and ideas about getting a group together was becoming a common topic. The trio rehearsed at Kev\'s room-over-the garage- for their initial months, which has now become Southcross Studios. Due to a suggestion from James, the band chose the name from a machine at his workplace, an intentional vague description of their sound, especially coming from a human tongue. To find the fourth element of the group, the trio went to Sep Briscoe, a bassist who participated in older projects with the group. The band recorded five songs \'Waited, Southern Comfort, Hot Shit (aka The Way it Goes), Failing, and 89th Street. In first or second takes, with only vocal overdubs, and had an official/rough demo to shop around with. Shortly after, due to personal reasons, Sep left the band, and went on to pursuive more serious challenges. Left without a bassist again, Craig Lowell, who was previously in a rock /hip/ hop band called Modified Friction responded to a bassist wanted left in a local music store. The four automatically clicked and began performing and writing new material. In the Summer of 2008 the quartet released their first Self Titled debut. Their first album Self Titled (2008) recorded and produced by All Thread, introducing captivating lyrics, catchy melodies and intense grooves that evolve a sound that is fresh for a new group. The upbeat tunes "Funk Groove","Krangz", and \'Downtown\' are with out a doubt radio friendly. Attracting listeners and fans from both mainstream and independent. Mixed by North Hollywoods own Giff Tripp. Other projects Giff has been involved in was 311s \'Don't Tread On Me\' and Peppers\' No Shame. The group turned to Joe Gastwirt aka \'warm analog genius\' to master the 11 track Self titled album. All Thread has continued to build a strong fan base by performing all year along the east coast region from their current home base in Virginia Beach, VA. Not only is the group captivating on stage but also articulate in their own home recording studio, the band has brought many of their songs like "Downtown" \'Krangz\' and "One of These Days" to the masses.The group displays a unique blend of various styles including fusion funk punk rock with a twist of reggae While parallels have been drawn between acts such as 311, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Police and Weezer All Thread provides a positive energy and full of head banging rock rhythms.
