As We Are is a hard rock/post hardcore band from Southern Illinois. Forming in 2012, the band has released 3 EPs and are currently working on their 4th release, scheduled for release fall of 2022.
Throughout the years, the band’s sound has evolved from punk wave to more of a post-hardcore/punk/alternative sound.
As We Are is known for their consistent tour schedule, high energy shows, and their love for the fans, or as they call them, family. They’ve been listed in AP magazine as one of the upcoming bands to get to know. As We Are have also caught attention for their interaction with the homeless community and the less fortunate. They use their bus as a mobile food/goods pantry. The band loves to give canned goods, sleeping bags, blankets, etc., to anyone that they see may need help. If you would like to take part in their giving, they highly encourage bringing any canned goods, hygiene products, sleeping bags, etc. out to their shows.
Founder, Dale Vaughn, owns and operates a community outreach in his home town and wants to bring that community to the whole As We Are family.
