SPIN Artist Introspective: As You Were

A profile on serving your country through musical expression

Rock bands come in all shapes and sizes. This much we know. But, As You Were are way different than any other band on the planet. Why? Outside of face-melting solos and infectious grooves, every member of the band is an active duty soldier in the United States Army. In this Artist Introspective, As You Were breaks down how they’re changing perceptions about the intersection of artistry and the military, showing how the US Army is more than just about fighting. Performing in As You Were has allowed its members to grow as musicians and as people, and they’re here to tell you their unique story on how they’re able to pursue their dreams and how other opportunities exist in the Army.
