A Rooster for the Masses (AR4TM) formed in Raleigh, NC the fall of 2004 just on the cusp of the reelection of George W. Bush. With the world filled with high political tension and social angst Rooster started writing music. The songs created were hybrid of forms drawing influence from many eras of rock, electro, shoegaze, reggae, disco, punk and metal. After writing and touring regionally for a year AR4TM went
into the studio and recorded "Gallo Rojo" released in 2006. After 2 years of playing shows, which included
providing local support for Hard Fi and New Model Army, recording demos and changes in line-up, fast forward to 2008 on the verge of a regime change and the beginning of a new era. With even more turmoil in our society and in the midst of a collapsing economy AR4TM introduces "Broken Era", songs that reflect our times and our hopes for change.
