Arson City is a 5 piece hard rock band based out of Omaha, NE that was formed in late July of 2013. Arson City is comprised of Patrick Wilson, former lead singer of national recording artist “EMPHATIC”, as well as 3 former members (Mark, Matt O. & Matt D.) of the highly popular regional band “THE WRECKAGE” and Matt DiBaise of Omaha based rock band, “SAVE THE HERO”.
Arson City is not just a musical project, but an all out concept and vision, with each member of the band portraying their own character within Arson City. The Mayor, The Doctor, The Con, The Dealer and The Enforcer. As the story goes, Arson City is filled with violence, greed, corruption, and is in a constant struggle within itself to maintain hope for those who have nothing, strength to those who need it, and revenge for those seeking it. Not only has Arson City’s music already caught on and gained them strong local and regional backing, members of their fan base have become known as “CITIZENS.” These “Citizens” come to Arson City performances, portraying their own characters, with their own stories, and have become a huge part of the vision.
Arson City has already gained major traction both locally and regionally in the first 2 years of existence. With all of the members experiencing success through previous projects, many fans have converted and followed the 5 members to Arson City and several cities across the U.S. continue to call hoping to get a glimpse of Arson City’s high energy stage performance and all out presentation. With 3 releases (2 EP’s and 1 full-length entitled “The Horror Show”) already under their belt, Arson City is looking to expand it’s fan base across the U.S. and get out to perform for those looking to experience what Arson City has to offer. Welcome, to Arson City.
