Band of the Week #2: Annabel Lee

Our second Fuel The Scene Band Of The Week is hard-hitting Charlotte, NC-based Annabel Lee. Formed in 2010, Annabel Lee consists of Joshua Dean (vocals), Jim Hadeka (guitar), Chad Honeycutt (drums), and Jarred Allen (bass). Combining hardcore and djent sounds with brutal screams and melodic clean vocals, Annabel Lee is a band that will make you feel like you’ve been punched in the face and feel grateful for it. We recently caught up with them to ask a few questions and get a little insight from the guys behind the music.

How would you describe Annabel Lee to someone who has never heard you, and what sets you apart?
We’re a group four dudes who come from different musical backgrounds to achieve a combined dream of playing music, performing and writing. What sets us apart is our passion and drive, and a crazy frontman.

What can fans expect from your live performances and what do you hope fans take away from your shows?

You can expect to get 100% raw, unfiltered emotion throughout every song and at every venue, no matter were we play. We hope the fans take from us a great show experience, and hope to touch them through our lyrics and personal meanings.

What song in your current set or album is resonating with fans the most? 
The Hunter, it’s a very meaningful song to us and a lot of people can relate to it. It’s about being cheated on, and that’s such a dirty feeling. So we all kinda go to a dark place playing that one live.

If you could tell the world one thing about Annabel Lee, what would it be?
That no matter how young or old, don’t let anyone keep you from following your dreams and aspirations.

What do you hope Annabel Lee is remembered for?
We would like to be remembered for how humble and genuine we are as individuals and musicians.
Bonus round: How often does Josh bleed on stage?
All the time, Josh says
