Born in the Flood Biography

Born in the Flood originated over a decade ago when Singer Nathaniel D. Rateliff and Bass Player Joseph Pope III began creating music on the south bank of the Missouri River floodplains in Hermann, Missouri. Rateliff and Pope were raised in the throes of a blue-collar life, witnessing the constant hardships. It was here that Rateliff began his work as a songwriter; here the factories and farms mixed quiet desperation with idealistic youth. Their vision quickly outgrew the limitations of rural seclusion and over the years found their way west to Denver.

There they picked up guitarist Matt Fox and drummer Mike Hall and soon after was the birth of Born in the Flood. The band has wrapped up its highly anticipated sophomore e.p., "The Fear That We May Not Be", recorded by Ian Hlatkey at Woodshed Studios, and has begun to garner label attention already. The album will be independently released July 15th 2005 and available in stores. Songs such as "For Fear" and "Fate of the Underachieved" had previously begun underground circulation in the Denver area and have created much excitement at the passion and progressive nature of a band on the pulse of the music scene.

Born in the Flood has been playing locally in Denver since May 2002, and have shared the stage with local and national acts including The Walkmen, Earlimart, Dios Malos, Dressy Bessy, Devotchka, Bright Channel, Atlas, The Hot IQ's and The Fray. They have headlined venues in Denver including The Gothic, The Blueird, and The Fox Theatre in Boulder and have played with many local national touring acts at venues on the forefront of the underground scene such as The Hi-Dive, 15 Street Tavern, Larimer Lounge and Lions Lair.
