COMMENTS

The band was active from 2001-2004.

Pushing Earth was a collaboration of accomplished musicians all in their mid to late 20s. The band's individual members drew influence from many varying styles and moods of music, making the final result which was Pushing Earth 'nothing short of motorized power'.

Hailing from Eureka, California, the band gigged up and down the West Coast continually over a 2-year span. In late 2002, they ran away with the 1st place trophy in radio KMUD's annual Battle Of The Rock Bands, earning them a sizable prize package including studio time with Grammy nominated rock producer Mike Kapiton. With ocean-side inspiration and the guidance of the renowned producer, Pushing Earth nailed down their 5-song EP. They have since pressed over 20,000 promo copies that have been distributed all over both coasts and everywhere in between.

In August of 2003, Pushing Earth relocated to Des Moines, Iowa. They played several shows throughout the country. They were added to several radio station's playlists throughout the Midwest and West Coast. They took 1st place in Lazer 103.3's 'Battle Of The Bands' Competition in April 2004, beating out 45 other bands. They recorded a song for the Des Moines semi-pro hockey team, the Des Moines Buccaneers. Also, in June 2004, Pushing Earth took place in the Ozzfest tour auditions. After making it through several rounds, they ultimately were not chosen.

Soon after however, they were approached by Stillborn Records about the idea of signing a deal. After much debate, the band declined the offer. In August 2004, the band called it quits to pursue other projects and ventures.
