“You guys are going to be the next big thing”

Starting a band at the ages of 13 and 14 can be quite difficult in a town with a population of less than 20,000 people. However, when the combined love of music and God that Jose Villanueva and Matt Morgan had joined together, it was the start of what would soon become Divided By Friday.

In early 2005 the lineup of Divided By Friday was complete now with Chris Thomas on Bass and James Earl Poole on drums. Writing began as a group and soon after, their first gig was booked. Many were doubtful because of the age of the young boys, but after the show, people finally began to accept them as a real band. Demoing began for a small release and to the surprise of many; they filled two stories worth of fans and local supporters.

Becoming nationally recognized throughout the internet and public, Divided By Friday has received kudos from members of: Cartel, The Mile After, Sullivan, House of Heroes all while marketing themselves to bands such as: Armor For Sleep, Relient K, Underoath, and Chiodos. Recently Divided By Friday found themselves in the top charts on MySpace Music and found that they were the third highest ranked unsigned Christian band in North Carolina.

One night while preparing for an upcoming gig, front men Jose Villanueva and Matt Morgan checked their MySpace page to find a message inviting Divided By Friday to come compete in Band With a Mission in Nashville, TN (making them the youngest band to ever be invited to such an event). After showcasing their band they received many Management and Promotional offers but the band decided to stick it out and manage everything themselves.

After finishing up in Tennessee Divided By Friday began writing and demoing for their debut EP entitled “This Side Up”. The band spent months preparing and held a local release show to give there hometown a nice “Thank You” for all of their undying support. Since the release of their EP Divided By Friday has continued to book local and regional shows across North and South Carolina.

While at a Divided By Friday concert, one fan says, “I really feel the emotion coming from the band and it always seems that their songs are written for me”. The bands energy almost seems to transfer from the stage straight to the crowd as each song seems to draw the band closer to each one of its fans.

Divided By Friday has a very unique and intriguing sound. With influences ranging from Relient K to Underoath, you never know what to expect with this band. Upon hearing their sound many are very impressed with the complexity of music for such a young band. Now at the ages of 15 and 14, Divided By Friday continues to mature in their sound and their song writing and looks forward to seeing what God has in-store for them in the future.
