Passion is something you cannot put a price on. Sincere and honest song-writing is not easily found. Ethylene boasts both attributes loudly and aggressively on stage. With every down-stroke of the guitar, pluck of the bass, and crash of the cymbals, the Baton Rouge, LA based rock band demands nothing short of your undivided attention. Formed in the summer of 2005, Ethylene then was comprised of singer/song-writer Caleb Hymel, long time friend and drummer Karl Boudreaux and bassist Jordan Snyder. In just 1 years time, Ethylene built an amazing local following that continuously expands to other areas of the country. Selling over 1200 copies of their debut EP 'From the Ashes' in just a few short months. Ethylene to this day still receives song request in parts of the country the album is just now reaching. Amongst these requests is the powerful 'Cry Once' track, which tells a story of a close friend fallen at the hands of a drunk driving incident. Etching mental pictures into your brain with lyrics like 'Every look you gave to me that day is burned into my memory'. With truthful and powerful stories such as these it's no wonder that Ethylene continues to grow so rapidly and maintain such a loyal following. In late 2006, after Ethylene completed their latest EP 'Flicker', Karl Boudreaux decided to part ways with Ethylene due to career advancement opportunities. Which left Caleb and Jordan in search of a new stick flipper. During their time together Caleb, Karl, and Jordan played with many great bands, one of which was called September Son. Their drummer at the time, Sam Anderson, was multi-talented performing as a drummer and vocalist. After developing a friendship with September Son, Caleb and Jordan were immensely excited to learn of Sam's interest in joining the band. Sam Anderson joined Ethylene in early 2007, Ethylene was then able to finalize their new EP 'Flicker' and gear up for it's highly anticipated release and tour promotion. With a new drummer, additional vocalist and a renewed sense of direction, Ethylene has continued to win over crowds from all regions of the country.
