A Casual Affair is; Drew Wood (Vocals), Jeremy Coleson (Guitar), Sean Prior (Guitar), Colton Cihla (Bass) and Tyler Coleson (Drums).
Formed in the fall of 2009, the Coleson brothers recruited Sean, Colton, and original vocalist Dane Larson. They began to build a strong local fanbase in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City hardcore music scene. An energetic live show, and the drive to make new friends and fans, A Casual Affair was quickly the talk amongst peers.
In the summer of 2010 Andrew joined as the bands keys/synth player. After a few short months, then vocalist Dane Larson decided to pursue his education, leaving ACA without a frontman. Originally a fill-in, Andrew sealed his spot as vocalist, bringing forth a newfound sense of energy.
With a solid line-up finally in place, ACA set forth to create a new name for themselves. Shortly after releasing their debut EP “I Appreciate your Honesty, Honestly” they immediately began to write their follow full-length. A concept album titled “The Further.” The album follows the character Eric Jensen, and tells of his struggles dealing with the loss of his wife and child, as well as hunting the man down who took their lives. “The Further” was released in the summer of 2011, and the band soon after embarked on their first couple of summer tours to support the album’s release. ACA is currently writing and are planning to release a full length in 2017.
A Casual Affair is a band who strives for perfection, but rejoices in the times when this isn’t possible. Constantly writing and pushing the barriers of the genre, the band has an extremely high level of passion and drive to keep them going for years to come. A strong sense of family, and treating each other as brothers, is what keeps them together. It’s not just the music that they come together for. It’s wanting to show people that a band is a family, and a family who wants to spread the fun they are having, the love they all share, and the music that they create.
This is A Casual Affair.
